Yeah, was originally going for fibreglass and then I was thinking thick plastic but I'm locked into aluminium now. I've got everything i need, just need the time. I may go fibreglass of CF for build 2, but then there's Hyena's new custom frames so all that works already being done....Hmmmm, we'll see.

Him: Is it Illegal?

Yay. coming up off the road onto a right hand footpath I went onto wet grass and the hookworm slipped out from under me.(just pumped it up from 30psi to 40 psi ) smacked my helmet on the pavement (that $40 just paid for itself) bit of a graze on the knee and my right thumb and index finger are now swollen and painful.......Harden up princess.
But on the whole......HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!!
Hobbit wrote:Yeah, all the series-ing, paralleling is done on the motor/charger side of the plug. Quite brilliant really. I'm pretty sure thats why icecube deleted most of his photos. Guys were pumpIng him for detailed info, getting him to do all the schematics, then just pulling out and doing it themselves essentially stealing his designs..not fair, damn trolls.

By the way how amp hungry is the 4080? Do you have any efficiency results as to how much amps it eats and at what speed?
Hobbit wrote:as for "power hungry" at 55 amps and 70 volts the motor does about 66kph. I think Hyena has his up to low 70's though. There's been some private discussion that this motor my in fact possibly have a few different winds floating around. I've taken it up a 2 km long hill that rises about 150-200 metres from start to finish at full throttle and the side cover feels about 15 degrees warmer than ambient using a "palm meter"
