Dogman, those little squished Honda hybrids get higher than 65 mpg, as I recall. Forget what they call em. Might be too small for you and your dogs though. :)

Re: Back Wheel Motor vs Front

Since i only ride my front drive bike on flat city streets! I find it my favored ride. Flat foot comfort frame, easily 27mph. Easiest build, and bike to maintain. I have a rear drive too, but find no advantage for city riding on flat streets.

The only downside to unsealed connectors is corrosion and shorting in rain.
ACF50 or Boeshield on any connection.

Well, I found it at Luna. Should of bought direct from Sur-ron. Doesn't look like much savings as it is listed at $3,300 and $160 shipping. $3,460 is not bad, just $400 more than I was quoted by Sur-ron.

Re: Super glue nickel strips to 18650?

I got it right, but my point is that if you do the soldering fast enough - there will be no damage to the battery at all, even if your soldering iron is at 450°C. But the best idea (imho) is the Vruzend kit (tanks again, fechter ) Nope, look around. Some recent work by Micah Toll shows how wrong yo...

Re: Is it possible to overcharge a batterypack due to defective BMS?

yes very possible to overcharge especially if the pack is out of balance. If one row of cells reads higher than the rest and your monitoring for overall voltage, the overall voltage can be below the max, though one row of cells are already past there max voltage. A multimeter will only tell you ove...
