Re: 4wd 3.2kw mobility scooter

I need to get the tyre slipping with the floor but not with the hub so I slip my power away I'll build it first then worry about tyres later I've been bite ...

Re: 4wd 3.2kw mobility scooter

That's mental, An old escort goes for the over take nah nah fella get to the back and it's gone I think that would give a decent car a run for its money upto 60mph. I'm looking to keep this stock foot print so I can drive Into a shop in granny mode and flick it into drift mode. So I'll be looking to...

Re: A2b metro gti

Here is the build thread for my A2B Metro: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50590 I used the stock motor and modified it for an external controller. So much better now. That was my aim but I cracked the thing opening it to remove the controller I was gutted and cost me arm and ...

Re: Tesla Model 3

Re: A2b metro gti

I plan in removing the lock to the b battery and slide cap on the rear of the frame t...

Re: Hover board motors for mountain board

Seems to me the only issue with using them is the tyre is solid so not much cushion and the axle needs to be sturdy so a custom set of trucks is best but I'm all over this loving the idea of forming a deck making the truck's and shove 12s 20ah of lipo I already have and make a 4wd one with four 350w...

I don't think nuclear should be on the list myself with its waste being dumped at sea until the mid 90's the policy being the solution is dilution and that's without the bomb efforts that USA shoved in a hole then concreted over and left a string of islands with kids skin falling off.

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Look at South Wales in the 1960's coal was king then cheap oil came on the scene and we jumped on it coal then took a back step being more expensive. At this time mechanisation was brought in so machines could remove upto 50 ton of ore a minute making coal cheaper and more profitable so we still use...

Re: My excellent adventure through some battery builds

Caps are good for smoothing out big inductive spikes like a florescent light start up but with a motor running from battery source the caps will give an instant boost in available power only if the battery cannot match the controllers demands and in that case it's better to add more cells than caps ...

Re: DIY battery pack for phone, tablet

I hate the 20000mah rating on powerbanks it's not a true reading of the energy contained. We know they operate at 3.7v nominal so there should be 74wh available then the buck boost circuit wastes heat then the phone itself gets hot while charging so you can see where the missing energy goes even if ...
