[DML] Re: Angle Drive Failure Mode

It might not be the angle drive itself. Pull the left, front wheel and
inspect the hole in the center of the plastic drive disc. If the hole
is not square, the square cable from the angle drive will slip. The
drive disc itself can also slip. Sometimes a wrap or 2 of electrical
tape around the outside edge will prevent the disc from slipping
between the spindle and the wheel. I will guess that you don't have an
RPM/MPH conversion table for your electric car yet! At least if you
get the speedometer going it will work EVEN IF YOU RUN OUT OF ELECTRIC!
