Following some posts in the engineering forum, I've been able to liberate all the components needed for a working drive system from a 2014 LEAF. I've posted it for sale on ebay for anyone interested. Here is a video demo of the system starting and motor control on my garage floor. I'm selling everything pictured EXCEPT the battery, which is going into a 2000 Ford Ranger EV.
