Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Atmospheric CO2 is currently at the highest point in 15-20 million years! That's not a theory, we have measured and verified this! Even within the natural variation of CO2, the change we have measured in CO2 levels over the last 200 years is the fastest EVER! Usually it takes 10 000 - 20 000 years!...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Where the “theory” fails on scientific evidence is the linkage mechanism between those two and any linkage to Human involvement. That is all just “Theory”. ( IE:, cannot be scientifically verified ).. No. I don't know where you're getting this from? Anthropogenic CO2 is measurable, verifiable and c...

Re: Three wheel steering

If you dont plan to have a manual pedal drive system, and only use hub motors, it could be engineered , but still a complex multi-jointed system. For wheels to run in mainstream auto wheel tracks, that will require a very wide track trike ...4.0’ or more. So quite a sizeable machine,..and with incre...

Re: oups i dremeled my cel to deep damaged??

ok and is it ok to have 4,10 4,14 4,12 4,13 for example in a same parallel group or the difference of voltage is to high to place them in a same parallele group? Others may not agree, but for me, those voltage differences (40 mv) are no issue for a parallel group. Remember once assembled, the volta...

Re: So I flubbed up and accidentally ordered a 36v battery for one of my 48v TSDZ2. Best thing to do in this situation?

If you are a tech geek....you could reprogram the software voltage limits on your motor controller to allow the 36v pack to work. There is a looooong thread on how to do that in the “Non hub motor” section. BUT the lower voltage will mean less performance..power, speed and range. Personally , i woul...
