    Hi,

    I heard that the Model S contactors were changed from Tyco (Kilovac) to Gigavac. Does anyone have any information on this? I would appreciate if someone can send a picture of the unit containing the Gigavac contactors or part number and other information on the contactors themselves.

    Thanks,

    Same thing I have heard. Apparently Tyco couldn't handle power levels and had other issues.
