Re: Chickens

I am slightly envious and now interested in similar. We had a farmette with goats and chickens as a kid. I wonder if you can feed chickens dog and cat food that is often plentiful in the pet store dumpsters? That could be cannibalism? but quirkilly I think that only applies to humans? Speaking of wh...

Re: Dumpster Delinquent

I'm amazed myself that I get to be the lucky one. There's evidence of others but we're outside of 'bum walking distance' from the city. I watched so many utube vids and that's what made me want to try it. 'Craigslist hunter' was really useful. But the honey holes I'm finding the best stuff in I've n...

Re: MOVIE NITE

What is the reason to watch these 'prequels' and teasers trailers and reviews before the movie itself?

Imo they have potential to ruin the movie for you.
Like watching the movie in realtime with some jackass stealing your popcorn and pissing on your boots.

Re: Mantra Mk II

Thanks It might be a little bit till I tear into this. I'll probably start with a fresh dual fw hub or the urt extension. Not 100% how I want to do them yet exactly. Other than that everything else will pretty much just transfer. This new frame design is amazingly updated though. ______ 'Ribs'- I do...

Re: $680 zoned HVAC instead of $5000 central system

Wow, I'll just trust you about 'most' people/situations in some other areas like Seattle. But people HATE it here. And the maths work out to 'resistive heat' being 3 or 4 times less efficient than other forms of electric heat including simple infrared type, though. Or 'expensive' 500$ minisplits etc...

Re: $680 zoned HVAC instead of $5000 central system

just as efficient as using any kind of resistive electric heat. Which is one of the most inefficient I know. ?

Re: Apollo 250 Dirt Bike Conversion

I am going to get my batteries mounted in and try a good trail ride with this thing at 18s 24ah 12t/60t and see what I think before I waste time changing the rear sprocket, but if I want more power that will realistically be the only solution for me and this build. I doubt I will get into a two sta...

Re: $680 zoned HVAC instead of $5000 central system

a fridge is helpful in winter, as the warm section helps heat the house. In the summer is where you really can save if you can exhaust that heat. Well I didn't think I'd need to get all mathy, and still don't. Try this on for reasoning though. You are already paying to heat the house. Then you are ...

Re: Apollo 250 Dirt Bike Conversion

I'm pretty sure every bht build I've seen comes to around 30 for their kV. Mine too, 30rpm per volt. Let's see, I'm running 40mph hot off charger iirc. 99-100 volts . 24" dia tire. 11/55 reduction. Yep, 3k rpm /5 should come to around 40mph for 24"x 3.14 circle And while I never measured mine truly ...

The years are moving by and my first build has done really nice, but it's time to replace it.

Re: Apollo 250 Dirt Bike Conversion

because under load the RPM will drop Right and that has gotta be what we're seeing here. Double kV (if this is definitely BHT and not bigblock VS d7500), plus taller gearing should be going >70mph with adequate amperage!! Seems like you should be gearing down and not up skeetab, to be kinder for yo...

Re: Apollo 250 Dirt Bike Conversion

Seems like if bht did 35mph on 12/60 and d7500 does 41mph on 14/60 they are nearly identical kV ? ? ? ? /// oh my bad you're running 13t for 41mph now, so ~9% taller gearing and ~18% greater speed. Pretty close, way closer than LR/ big block for a single reduction running decent voltage! Wow that is...

Re: Apollo 250 Dirt Bike Conversion

Also smaller controller and easier fast charging. 300vdc is crazy though haha! Ok, so I'm still missing your voltage and would have to guess tire diameter. So, could you just confirm how fast the bike went with the bht? From there we can just figure your ~18% higher gearing w/ the 13t and know how c...

I don't usually do formulas for building costs cuz material is cheap (and it's better to figure how you want to run sheathing and drywall first then price by size vs footage for accuracy if you're figuring tight).

Re: Apollo 250 Dirt Bike Conversion

D7500 has 66,65kV and 48,45Nm other motor has 69,64kV and 26,5Nm Wow that seems a pretty dam good increase for just a couple pounds of motor!!! Imo it's too bad the bigblock and apparently (looking for confirmation) the d7500 have around twice the kV of BHT. Low kV means you can get more power/ener...
