I think it would be nice to do a video on how to replace the mechanical pot on a motor controller that you can get off of amazon (such as: https://www.amazon.com/Controller-Stepless-Adjustable-Potentiometer-Forward-Brake-Reverse/dp/B089273KVZ/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=60+amp+motor+controller&qid=1657135233&sprefix=60amp+moto%2Caps%2C113&sr=8-2 ) and use a digipot such as an MCP41100 and be able to control it with the Arduino.

 

Im sure there are things to look out for instead of just a direct replacement.  It would also be nice to cover the motor direction switch with the Arduino too.
