Well, its been five years just about to the minute that I came home to the results of the fire. Seems both much longer and just like yesterday. Life goes on; Yogi and Kirin are doing well (napping next to me right this moment, cuz its about 95F outside right now so we came inside to cool off). My br...

Re: Building a solid rim for my QS205

Am I still a fool for pursuing this idea? I dont see any reason it wouldnt work. Also as long as the rims ID matches up right to the covers OD, the covers will help support the rim, along with the spoke flange, if you think you might need the extra. Otherwise Id just make a lip on the inner surface...

Re: HBM3000

If all the hall sensors are reported as on at the same time, then there could be a connection problem to the halls in the motor (any of the 5 wires to them; power, ground, or signals).

Or the sensor could be defective.

Re: Giant Twist - Ride Control Display problem

Are you certain that all of the wires are connected to the same points they were before you had to remove the wire section?

If the battery positive to the display, and the switched battery positive out of the display, were swapped, it might have the symptoms you see.

Re: E-Kart Build

RC chargers (and common BMS units) have very tiny balancing capabilities, so with a large pack like yours, if it did get out of balance, it could take days to weeks to rebalance it. The best way to avoid that is to use the pack well within its performance limits, so it doesnt get out of balance in t...

Re: The ultimate torque arm (For <2kW and standard axles)?

Latest version is much simpler; with one reversible part providing both halves of the clamping action. I think this shows how the two identical halves, fit around the axle and the ramped internal surfaces clamp onto the axle flats as the nut is done up to eliminate freeplay and adapt to different t...

Qty 7 Nissan Leaf batteries 16S I dont recall for sure, but the cells are probably 3.7v nominal, 4.2v full, so 16s gives a nominal pack voltage of 59.2v, and a full charge of 67.2v. I think that is going to require the 72v version of the Satiator to charge it (if you go the CS route). Depending on ...
