    I've heard nothing but horror stories bout the controllers, think I'll just buy a used one for a backup possibly.

    Picked it up in Maryland since the prices here were astronomical, $1200 cheaper to drive 5 hours round trip.

    Yeah just a quick search on eBay puts em at like $450. Have you just had issues with the entire controller going bad or just a certain wire or connection?

    its the entire controller there is nothing you can fix on them they have tons of inline fuses and such and still fry themselves
