Re: Discussions aren't the same quality without Chalo

Chalo is an acquired taste but ET was poison.
I am in Texas and some drivers are bad and if you run over a bike or walker not being drunk your free to go.

Re: C Cab Hot Rod Power Advice

The idea of large rotors is not just stopping power but more about getting rid of heat. If you do not have regen and use the brakes a lot in a heavy EV you will make a lot of heat and ware out and/or warp the disc/rotor. My regen is more about stopping the watts recovered is a bonus. so I have never...

Re: Wondering about potential of plywood velomobile

Like the looks! Wood is great for the home Hobbyist and heavy. Like the idea of velomobile but it is hot most of the year so fully enclosed is not ideal. Would like to keep the rain off, some aerodynamics. Like the design, keep doing the good work.

Re: Which hybrid electric car will be yours in the future?

I bought a 2013 leaf 24k battery pack, just love it but would swap for a newer one, bigger battery. Now 100 mile range is good for me. Charging to 80% and don't drive below 20% is really less than 60 miles which I get on with but most would not in a big city. Buying a hybrid? Thought about it in the...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

I have been alarmed but the last number 412 ppm for carbon dioxide enables me to see the end of the human race as we know it. Our bodies will not be able to deal with the heat. Don't even care about the naysayers anymore, just does not matter anymore. The last documentary and the data of our increas...

Re: Eggrider over 60v

I fear will will spend more money on that approach. If you look at the specs on 72V controllers they handle more battery amps and put out more phase amps to get more out of your motor and support lower voltage 60, 52, 48 and maybe 36 volts. If you just want more torque and not just speed a bigger co...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

I live in Texas everyone needs to buy our Natural gas a lot cleaner than Coal that we do not sell. Fear of running out are you kidding, if people would just to bed at night we could cut the power use in half. What do you think?

Re: Ebike anti-theft, GPS and motion alarms, suggestions?

On my trike would prefer to have it under it's own power and hidden. bet they would pull my 72v 25ah battery first. The worst thing about my trike is my fear to leave it alone and I want to start using it for store runs more often but my fear stops me. I will follow this thread and see what everyone...
