    CHEAP VOLTAGE REGULATOR FOR IGNITION!!

    Has anyone used the cheap brushed speed controllers for a voltage regulator for igntion batteries?? I have some old GWS speed controllers for brushed motors that should work fine for ignition modules on gas motors. Has anyone done this?? Most ignition modules dont draw much current. Will this work??

    A cheap voltage regulator can be made from Radio Shack parts. Smaller and lighter than the motor speed controls. Want to trade? I need brushed motor controllers. PM me if interested.
