Did anything ever come of this? I've been obsessing about 2 speed gearboxes lately and remember this concept from years ago. I recall there was another member that did this as well but I can't seem to find the thread.

Re: Woodgas/Biogas vs DIY Electric

Winter is coming soon. If someone had a Freehold property they are living in, meaning no silly condo/strata rules. To reduce heating cost in the winter, a woodgas contraption going to a generator, that then powers heaters in the house. Maybe even find an electric water heater instead of gas, reduce...

Re: Woodgas/Biogas vs DIY Electric

Living in the desert southwest where wood is not very plentiful. I do my part by burning scrap wood for cutting my heating bill in winter. I have a very efficient stove, but gathering enough free wood just to heat it is a PITA. I just use my wood stove to heat from dead tree limbs and grapevines.

Re: interrupted charging, top up vs continous to full

One data sheet I looked up shows the cell to be .2c ? That's a pretty weak discharge for battery. So lower c rate cells sag more than higher c rate cells.

No battery expert for sure, but my old lifepo4 pack was always more stronger through discharge than lipo.

There are an incredible amount of shitty 'group' owners across all social media sites. Endless Sphere is a rare gem in that moderation and ownership are generally a hands off affair.

Re: Scored a converted E-Bike for $75!

Nice score. My best find was a 50 buck ford think e bike. It had a 24v brushed mid drive, which liked to eat controllers. Original controller was fried, and it fried another right way. You had to ride it very careful, avoiding amps spikes. I keep trying to find a broken trek, or bbso2, but in my to...

Re: List of small hatchback cars

Occasionally Toyota puts out some real garbage. You cannot trust them to do everything right. Toyota Matrix 1.8L manual transmissions fail around 75k miles. The 2.2L engine was famous for engine sludge. The 2.4L engine that came after that had engine sludge issues and oil burning / consumption issu...

Re: Hub Motor Kit

Voltage dictates the motor's running speed. The controller determines what range of voltage you can use with your kit; the motor itself has no voltage requirement. The controllers in those 48V kits will certainly run on 48V or 52V. I wouldn't expect them to work with higher or lower voltages than t...
