Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Dung, thanks for the update. Glad you made progress, sorry to hear how it went though. Good luck with it all and be sure to post some pics on the forum. So it's been too long, but finally I've made some progress worth posting. The big block finally showed up today and it's a beaut. Mike (Lightning R...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Hey Muney, not much progress other than saving some money every paycheck for the new motor. I'm not sure if you saw above, but I've abandoned the idea of the qs138 motor because it's simply too large. The new plan is to go with Lightning Rod's new ipm big block. The last 2 things I need are the moto...

Re: cheap 8" ebay hub motors (anyone tested them yet)

You are correct, not all windings are equal. I contacted that mfg and just asked for their 8" motor that spun the fastest (I wasn't too specific). I was able to hit 36 mph, GPS verified on a bike trail near the house. I also keep it pinned for 1/4-1/2 mile at a time when riding it in SF, some street...

Re: cheap 8" ebay hub motors (anyone tested them yet)

I'm running something similar on my dual hub scooter. They were listed as 36v motors but I run them at 18s. If you run 2 they RIP! Top speed is like 36 mph w/o field weakening and acceleration is insane (running lyen 9fet controllers). I'd recommend getting one with a disc brake mount as band brakes...

Re: EM3ev vs Luna Batteries and Kits

I bought a 72v 25ah battery made of 25r cells from EM3EV. All I can say is they were amazing to deal with from start to finish. Excellent communication, great price, and awesome product.

I have no experience with luna.

FWIW

Re: Kawasaki D-tracker Build

Thanks for the info. I'm running the wifi module as well and have a tablet setup, but the aspect ratio isn't big enough to fit everything you have on yours. Might just pick a used one up from ebay.

Re: Mobipus

There ya go. Make sure the time key is on your desktop so that when you launch the software, it reads that time key. In the "controller setting" tab you should see that you have engineering access (see pic) which is not on a time limit. After that you can change settings like regen and flux weakenin...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Hey John, that's a damn good idea, wish I thought of that. I've seen a few swingarms on here (vector maybe) that have vertical slots, those guys will probably have much better luck. So as far as the build, the current plan is to get the big block and mount it under the swingarm. I would love to moun...

2 reasons.

1. It's an invalid file extension (ES won't let me upload the file)
2. Didn't want anyone (vendors/potential vendors) getting upset

Also interested in what tablet you're running. Mine won't fit all the info you have displayed (I'm running a 72200).

Re: The BEST and FIRST Qulbix Raptor mid-drive build!

+1 I'm currently saving for this motor for my eeb. Having some specs like number of pole pairs, max phase amps, and max battery amps would be useful to have now so I can start setting up my controller. Super pumped about this motor!

Had a super fun time and probably the last time I'll ride the cr with a gas motor. More on that later. I also just got the wheel back from the bike sh...

Yo, thanks for the interest/kick in the ass to update this thread. It turned out quite well actually. I don't remember how many cells I ordered, but after checking them one cell arrived dead out of the batch. I ended up making (3) 24v 10ah packs (with some cells to spare). One pack for my kid's dirt...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

I meant both. The motor offset would shift the weight from the center of the swingarm which would likely affect handling. How much? I don't know. That offset was also going to affect the way the motor was going to be incorporated into the swingarm. I really like clean lines and symmetry and that mot...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@chambers, thanks for the reply and kind words. You're right, it is a long motor but has so many pros. I'm going to make a mock up of the motor out of a template I made in solidworks so I can have a physical representation of the motor to see if it's something I want to pursue. Excellent observation...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Made some progress this week in a few areas. First, the headset came in which was really easy to install. I used some 3/8" all thread 2 washers and 2 nuts to compress the new cups into the frame. The sealed bearings are a slip fit which is really nice. The front end is back together and ready for ac...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Well I've been able to get quite a bit done since I last posted. I did all the cutting and grinding to the swingarm. I also stripped most of the paint to powdercoat after much more modding to the swingarm, more on this below. I also finished the machining on the rectangular tubes that will be welded...
