Thats right...... I haven't strap a multi-meter onto my car to measure the resistance of the ESC for a long time!!!!!!!!!

I don't think most people bother with the negative/positive thing.... GM seem to be trying to find some excuse to blame the user for frying their ESC.... that instruction was certainly not contained in my version of the manual... which is a few years now! I've noticed that the new GM V12 also come with different diodes which are supposed to be 20 times stronger.... another ploy to misled people????...............

but hey....... what do I know......... I'm just a 3x year old KID who likes to run my cars in puddles!!!

when you send in your broken V12 for repairing, did they ask you which wire you unplug first???

No.... They should have asked me which wire I plugged in LAST because my V12 burnt when I switched the wires around..... didn't like it in forward so I figure it was quicker in reverse!!!!

No, no... you're trying to complicate the situation. Just try to plug the power leads to the batteries in reverse..... positive to negative and negative to positive!!!!! You will see what I mean.

You can do it on the Cyclone and have about 2 seconds before it blows up...... the V12 blows up instantly.... at least it's reaction time is certainly quick!!!!!
