I also like the idea of more control panel gauges, like engine temp, oil pressure, fuel level, etc. Also like the flip up deck idea, so it can go completely vertical, this makes blade changes and scraping so easy! Please do not use the TED brakes! ZTRs do not need a brake system, it is hydro controlled, so why put brakes on it?
Have you ever pointed a zero turn mower downhill? I would put them as an option if nothing else. Some of us have hills that the Ted brakes would be a huge help safety wise.
