The rear wheel is slightly over to the left so that the disc brake fits into the caliper.
I did go for a very short test ride (no power yet) yesterday and it *seemed* ok.
So how do I know if I have a crab walk problem? It's probably out of alignment by 10mm.
Maybe I can drill some air vents in the sandwich box if it gets hot.
Burtie - I am ignoring the spark issue for the moment. I guess the spark will happen inside the 'ignition' switch. Come to think of it, recalling the 'ignition on' noise it made when turning the switch sounded a bit like a spark. Ho hum. Maybe my ignition switch is robust enough to cope.
There is a big difference in the "feel" from straight line under pedal power to leaned over in a corner under DD hub power.
To be truthful, I am unaware off the correct alignment process.
To my mind & what I've experienced, you want the rear & front wheels in central alignment with headset center line.
Adjust your brakes & derailleur from there.
10mm out, seems to me to be on the high side.
I hope someone can jump in with better Alignment tech.
Drilling holes in the container will let it vent some heat.
Just monitor in the beginning/after big hills WOT.
I'm sure it will be fine.
I think the Ign. switch is fairly robust, that said it will still wear/blacken eventually.
Pre-charge resistor is really nice.
I have one on the Cell_man pack, they come standard.(Nice touch Paul)
Ive not seen a spark yet.*That wasn't operator error*
Good luck Monkey, get that thing centered, ride safe.
