I am probably wrong, but those things u make might as well be a sport motorcycle part. (I wil still probably buy them from you after I realize just how naive I am).
I have not made my torque arms yet, but I will attempt to go around 5mm thick.. And be very snug. Within .001". Stainless.
I was wondering, for those of you with dropout slots larger than the axle flat thickness--do you fill in the gap to keep the axle from rotating? Seems like the first place to address with any motor spin out issue
I still have some in stock even if you want to stop to fear about something that could break
Over the 260+ torque arm set i sold from now, i never got any negative comments. After all, i designed them by reading all these post about torque arms desing and problems and to build something that i think myself would agree to use on my extreme ebikes ( 20kW+)
