I had previously been using the Kelly KD controller in my EV.
I was very happy with it.

Since they stopped making the KD (and are replacing it with the KDZ)
I purchased a KDZ to go into a second EV.

I am having issues with my KDZ.

The main issue I am having right now is that the controller "regen brakes" until about 4 mph, then "clicks" off and the vehicle is coasting again.
Were as the KD controller I have never slows me down past 4mph, but it sure doesn't "click" off and coast.

Anyhow,

chime in if you are using this new controller (with or without issues).
I'd like to know if it is a faulty controller or just a crummy design feature that the old KD didn't have.

Thanks.
