Re: Hyena's e-bike builds (now with HD video)

So you were cheating, eh? hah, thats lycra mentality man! Anyone faster that you is cheating ? Every bit of performance you can gain through mods and tuning is more than fair game.

Damn now I feel like a complete fool :oops: . I remember reading that! Are the bms boards still getting hot when they are balancing?

Re: Torque Raptor ebike + frame kit

I think you guys are crazy not uwing regular lipo. It is very safe and gives you so many more options. Especially if you are thinking about a frame like this. Maybe i do not understand something. Why are you not using lipo? Let's not compare the safety of LiPo and LiFePo4. No, let's :twisted: . It ...

Re: GCinDC's Giant DH Comp

Why don't you put the controller in the triangle? You spent enough money on it, mine as well keep it safer from the elements. Keyword: safer lol
You got the room, so you can't use that as an excuse :P

Re: HS3540 BOSS BUILD. Now H4065 Boss Build

LoL trackman so much anticipation for 47mph, and then SPLAT !...... why you got the 4065 instead of 4080 if you wanted 47mph to keep with the traffic ? If you look at 65kph and convert it to mph you find it is right around 40mph :P . Now, I know that the naming convention is skewed by a couple km/h...

Re: HS3540 BOSS BUILD. Now H4065 Boss Build

100 volts and 42MPH, I would have to say that the 4065 has the exact same stator wind turn count as the 5405 then and the 5403 would be the same as the 4080. That's makes sense. Rick Could be. I kind of miss being able to go 40mph without running 100volts. Idk but I just don't like it. Running 100v...

Re: What throttle? Thumb or twist?

Half twist. It works like a motorbike, and you won't have any problem keeping your hand in position for the brakes while using it. Plus you'll have a more solid grip on the bars than with a full twist. I've found my thumb wants to fall asleep after an hour or so on a thumb throttle. +1 with the thu...

Re: HS3540 BOSS BUILD. Now H4065 Boss Build

looks like my top speed was good. Hyena was also using %120 timing on the motor. Our unloaded speeds where just about the same. I am not complaining. I am happy that I can keep up with traffic now and stay in the middle of the road.

Your worried about braking at 25-30mph? Aren't the disc brakes that come with the mX-500 somewhat good? I mean they look 10X beefier than bike brakes.

Re: HS3540 BOSS BUILD. Now H4065 Boss Build

Exactly! Whats not to love. I think running 24s at 40 amps would be a great and reliable combo for your 4065 and 26 inch rims. Because of your light weight and the light weight of your machine, 4000Watts will run like a bat outof hell and not be over volting/current things much at all. Hyena was se...

I think you guys are forgetting that the 5404 is in a 20" scooter rim. I don't think it will be drawing too many Amps compared to a 26" bicycle rim.
