Anyways, rock on.
Alltrax has wiring diagrams to go with their controllers, they're fairly simple.

I'm using roughly this one, it's the simplest:

If you want to get into general electronics, I've seen nothing online that's really well written. For books, The Art of Electronics by Horowitz and Hill is really good. It tries to give an intuitive understanding rather than just having everything fall out of a bunch of equations. It doesn't have anything particular to electric vehicles, though.
