but its not so fun on my bmx i can tell ya that much...lol.
That's the problem with CrazyBike2 with teh old SLA setup; it was so heavy that I essentially *couldn't* pedal it without the assist. But even with DGA I can pedal it but I really don't like to have to--it's too heavy, too.
I don't know if the batteries could be damaged, but you can test that by measuring their cell voltages under load, even if you have to do it one at a time with a meter.
Depending on how your controller is setup, it might have a damaged component like a burned resistor or simliar that is keeping it from reading the full throttle voltage. If it does not work right even with your full-throttle button, that sounds likely.
Might be easy to fix, by tracing down the path of the burned trace.
