Re: SIKK Fat Bike 49cc/MXUS 3000W Build

Well got a buddy coming over to weld the TA within the next couple days. Got the 10AWG military spec PTFE today. This is some really nice wire. Vary easy to bend and a strong but thin insulation. Didn't measure it but looks like twice the size of the stock wires. 20150219_235247.jpg I used a diamond...

Re: Do this if you build your own battery

what's the best checker/balancer???? I agree the cell log 8's seem to be the winner for cell checkers. I've seen many peeps on here use them and I like the high voltage alarm function too. Great for when your bulk charging so you can be alerted if one cell gets too high. But what's the general conse...

Re: Genesis V2100 - Assault & Battery - Illegal in all 50 St

The big questions is, what changes have been made to the Stinky frame shape/swing arm over the years it has been available? I know right? They have changed it every year sometimes pretty drastically. They might have kept the same dimensions for there swing arm mount over the years. Looks like some ...

Re: Turnigy Multistar - lightweight 10C cells

I have tested the 16Ah cells and I approve for 3C or 48A use. I just did discharge tests and they hold above 3.5v for 15.8AH and deliver 16.7AH down to 3.0v. Im going to do 1 more test to 4C or 64A. This will let me me know if I can run 1P on a 65A Lyen Controller with acceptable sag. the 3C test s...

Round two on epoxying the TA's Yesterday I re glued the TA back on and had the bike right in the heat stream from my garage heater. This time I used some little strips of plastic for shims. They were 1mm thick but when I squeezed the caliper it went to 0mm. So I just used them and squeezed the crap ...

Re: Testing the HP ESP-135 Server supply and isolation moddi

I'm thinking these would be great to use for a portable fast opportunity charger for touring! If one broke on the road, yah I'd be stuck somewhere with no fast charger, but at least I wouldn't be out much money's.

Re: improving MXUS 3000 V2

yes it should work, but i believe you have to do a resistor mod (for controller supply) and it probably needs additional low ESR caps which smooth out voltage spikes if you push it harder. set block time to zero. vrroooom! That's the sound of an imaginary plane flying over my head. :lol: Thanks a l...

Bookmarked! I will be following with much excitement! So did you get the 731rpm/3 turn one? No of course there is no need for a sine wave controller with this motor, but it would be sweet because the closer you can get to %100 motor/controller/battery efficiency the way better. Mate that with a recu...
