Re: NEV/LSV in Your State?

Oh, missed that response. The particular 12 mile trip I could have made on 35mph or less streets, except an NEV car wouldn't fit in my trunk when I got there. My MX650 hopped up, doing 30, 12 mile range. I might make weight but there's no room for the batteries on that thing.

Re: 48v mild hybrid systems?

Are we missing the big print here? Mild hybrid means the battery doesn't drive the vehicle fulltime. Or even much of the time. People have much to say about using the 12v lead acid car batteries other than as intended, what might the issues with the mid hybrid batteries be? A123 was touting the abil...

Re: Advice on motor/conversion kit for first timer.

My first advice is that if you want to spend less than what the minimum bike would cost, wait until you can afford the minimum bike. My first conversion was the 450w Currie kit, didn't make for much of a bike even if it worked fine for what it was. Me weighing considerably less than you at the time....

Re: The tipping point is just a few years out

Why is it a person who would refuse to be called a Fascist (I wouldn't want that either) will conflate socialism with despotic communism? Umm, a person would refuse be to called a fascist if he wasn't a fascist, so that's to be expected of any nonfascist. Meanwhile, communism IS a form of socialism...

Not to be dismissive, but it looks like a variant on the Fantom and there's no need to research it specifically.

This came up in the last 2-3 months, I remember the guy said he finally got his QS whatever but didn't say who from. I'm on my phone, search isn't working, if I remember when I get home maybe I'll have better luck.

QS has a thread they were posting in, again no luck finding.
