Re: KDX 20.0 cells trailbike conversion

Nice to see someone else here on ES wrestling with an eKDX concept - had a B2 years ago and reckon the lighter weight chassis of a 125-200cc makes a reasonable candidate for a registerable ride. Just considering an offer for a reasonably priced 1991 donor bike at the moment, so am enjoying the fact ...

Re: eBike OffRoad race format

The ride+race format is something I'd considered when first coming online as a Stealth dealer, but the investment cost to offer that was a massive hurdle and HIGHLY speculative, glad I didn't put my cojones on the block for that. Would take a pretty brave/deep pocketed individual to take a chance li...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Welcome back QR, its been a while. You still riding the Fighter? Thanks Rix, yes, has been a few years, I pop back in every now and then. Was riding the Fighter intermittently, motor carked it after the last EVFestival race I did and then life got in the way for a few years with 3 kids to wrangle. ...

Re: eBike OffRoad race format

There's a part of me that wants to see this also seed real world relevance, in range, load-carrying capacity and portability of battery as a power source, something I'll bet DARPA/DoD/ADF/DSTO would have an interest in, since it also replicates some of the field testing trials they'd be putting cand...

Re: eBike OffRoad race format

Thanks @markz - no problem, I know I've seen this pop up several times over the years on MTBR/pinkbike, though there's generally a bit less hate these days for eMTB now that they've demonstrated traction in product sales. There's some good valid posts in there about course design though. As an ex-MT...

Re: eBike OffRoad race format

Thanks for jumping in Pinotman. First important racing course design question: do we factor in a water obstacle/creek crossing? :lol: Will be a pretty quick differentiator in quality of builds and IP ratings. Regarding the bicycle class, yes, there'd need to be subdivisions within it, know how much ...

eBike OffRoad race format

After a chat yesterday with a new player, dusting off work that I started back in 2011-2013(ish) to explore some patterns for an OffRoad eBike racing format, after having enjoyed racing them in a go-kart track format for the Hunter EVFestival 1500class. Wanted to run that discussion under at least i...

I've single handedly cornered the market on 24" Hook Worms. Pfft. Go for it. Crazy bobs for me, such a better tyre. Popping back in here after a while away, nice to see the thread hit 700. Reviewing some of the earlier work I did in thinking through a race-format, since things have moved along...

Before and after photos. Before: Fighter controller, VRM-021 tyre, H4040 motor (yes it really is), stock 59V battery, 100ml caster oil in the hub, Tubliss system. My custom shock and forks. Very good, but it got a lot better ... After: Bomber controller (no DC-1 restriction), SR241 tyre, Tubliss, s...

Heh, I can vouch for how close to the wire Jay went, only just made it onto the track. Wish I'd done some vid of his last minute scrutineering and prep scramble. I wondered if he was playing me a distracting audio file to lull me into a false sense of security that there might be something failing a...

Re: (AUS) Hunter Valley EV festival August

Nice roll call - great to see some extra faces rocking up this year to take part and try their luck. Point taken. But yes, it was also nice to jump on, ride a standard COTS Stealth Fighter with no mods and take the win. For potential customers, that's a nice turn-key experience. Suspect we'll be kee...

Yes, me too. I know for sure Hyena will be champing at the bit to get on track for the 1500 class to see if he can win it this time. Just needs two things to happen: 1. His bike to not fall apart or break for 10 laps (am sure he won't make this mistake again); 2. Stay upright and hope to not make a ...

Well, my dad accidentally grabbed the throttle on my stealth causing it to land of its left side bending the left crank. I took it off and did the best I could with bending it back in a vice. It definitely feels crooked now. Where can I source new pedal crank arms? Stealth stocks them. I tried to g...
