Re: Will your computer be able to run Win11?

All I read on it was that people are buying complete computer systems for the graphics card then selling the computer without the gpu or a lesser gpu no longer needed. Its taking more and more startup capital for a proper R.O.I. with crypto mining. Linux Mint is pretty cool I like it a lot the base...

Re: Will your computer be able to run Win11?

I'm having a ball with linux mint over here and running win 7 or 10 in a VM with lots of ram to compensate. I have a hybrid windows and linux workflow now. I'm about to throw a second graphics card in so i can do a GPU bypass to a windows VM for my game playing purposes. Linux Mint is blazing fast a...

Re: Sur Ron/Luna XX "Ludicrous" mod

No idea what they are doing now, but in the past I've seen shunt mods for the BMS to prevent tripping. This won't keep the cells from overheating though. Before I added the second battery, I was able to overheat the pack and cause shutdown. I see their "engineering department" hasn't chan...

Re: Return of the ES wiki!

The wikimedia engine we used to use had extremely poor organization by default.. Not fun to browse, and certainly not fun to edit. No surprise to hear you had a hard time referencing an article. Also, we ended up running two sites with duplicate information.. it ended up being an avenue for a very s...

Re: Cowardlyducks - E-BikeE builds

For 20" forks, the spinner grind seems to be fairly well constructed, and suntour also makes some nice 20" suspension forks in various firmnesses, with decent stanchions, if you're unhappy with the Chinese one you bought. Finding one that doesn't hit the pedals on a CLWB is another matter....

Re: Cowardlyducks - E-BikeE builds

It certainly punches! Even factoring the usual exaggerated specs I reckon it could do 200A peaks, 80A sustained without breaking a sweat. At full throttle pulling 60A it only sags about 4V which is pretty impressive for some no-name Aliexpress '40Ah' pouch cells. That is impressive; i believe my ma...

Re: BYD's LFP blade batteries - heavy but extremely safe.

I also scratched my head on that one. It may be relative to one component of the battery, and the presenter got something mixed up? idk.

Basically these batteries come out to around 160whrs/kg with packaging, which is actually impressive by lifepo4 standards, but not by >2011's NMC standards ;)

BYD's LFP blade batteries - heavy but extremely safe.

Ultra safe, cheap, big LFP pack. Gotta love how it 'fails' uEvR3kyx_KM I wouldn't drive a 5000lbs EV with a pack like this, but i think it's cool that they were able to make the pack so safe that it wouldn't even emit much smoke. Would be cool if the same thinking applied to other chemistries to at ...

Re: Leaf / leafmotor / leafbike high efficiency 1500w motor

I do wish we saw pre-built bikes with that type of arrangement......specifically left side drive with a planetary gearbox for the first reduction (which also functions as an output shaft support). 1. Such an arrangement wouldn't widen and/or make uneven the bike's q factor (cranks). 2. High amount ...

The only close calls or accidents I've had riding either of my velos, I was 100% sober, oddly enough. When I use either for work, I ride sober, but when ridin...

Interesting findings on Oroxylin A, it's reducing my caffiene usage somehow. I just want less. Very strange. Nothing else has done that.

Re: Move to XenForo software

Thank you, kind sir!

Next steps at this point:
1) Work with Justin and his designer for an improved color scheme/aesthetic.
2) Install and test all of those Xenforo plugins.
3) Get the sticky posts copier written.
4) Moderator and user feedback/review stage.
5) Set the release date :shock:

Re: Hyundai shutting down internal combustion engineering department to make EV motors

But currently, EV's catch on fire less often than gas-powered cars do. And EV ranges go up to 450 miles, which is more than enough to be competitive with gas cars. 12 currently available EV's have ranges >300 miles, which again is competitive. Tesla battery packs have lasted 300,000 miles without g...

Re: Hyundai shutting down internal combustion engineering department to make EV motors

Nope. The batteries we have right now work just fine. Sure, we could make them cheaper and figure out better reuse/recycling systems for them. But we don't need any new advances. I agreed with everything you said except this. We need batteries that are denser, don't-self ignite during a number of f...

True, it's a low bar to slide under because it's very obvious that we only have very high hanging fruit to pick with the ICE. No number of very expensive experiments by large automakers have churned out anything other than small incremental improvements. ICE is a dead end technology as far as i'm co...

Re: Leaf / leafmotor / leafbike high efficiency 1500w motor

Peak efficiency....yes. But it loses in.efficiency at lower wheel speed. With a very small wheel it won in efficiency (and power) all throughout the speed range. I was very impressed. Very low speed efficiency doesn't matter much and is INCREDIBLY variable with what load you put on each motor vs th...

In the simulator the 5t leaf 1500 does extremely well at very small wheel sizes. I was even able to beat the GMAC 8T motor using a 28" wheel for efficiency and power throughout the speed range when I used a 14" wheel with leaf 1500 at double the volts and half the amps and half the phase ...

Re: Leaf / leafmotor / leafbike high efficiency 1500w motor

Short version: The limit before burning one up appears to be 20kw @ what, 10 minutes? when you use ferrofluid. Slight air cooling mods? 2kw all day. Battery dies before the motor exceeds ~80C here. 6kw in spurts was no big deal for me, heat wise. 10 minutes up a 7% grade at 50mph wasn't enough to me...
