Re: GCinDC's Giant DH Comp

i mentioned that my GT was 75 lbs and the dh comp was 92lbs(?). he said his raptor was only 75 lbs. i laughed and brought down the bathroom scale... : Add another 5 or so pounds for the 4080 8) Is that thing state side, at the very least?

Re: Crystalyte bought on Ebay. Any good?

As regards to the price. I sold my 3540 for $200 plus shipping in almost new condition. You got pretty hammered for the price you payed versus what you actually got. :?
If it works, I would say just use it.

Re: eKMX Trike race against 600HP range rover

I think you can do it rather easily with Three wheel drive :twisted: . Have the cromotor in the back and two hs3548s in the front. There was a guy who had a dual 3540 setup and ran around 132v of battery. His acceleration was super quick for two light motors putting out huge amounts of power. He dra...

Re: 9C 2807 72v 50a MTB build

Nice and clean build. Reminds me of my first bike but yours looks much better :D
Drawing 50 amps from a 3aH lipo battery is just asking for some sort of trouble :?

Your pack is going to deteriorate rather quickly t those settings.

Re: Guess What? Your CA V3 has built in security!

Good idea.
Another thing you can do is set the Low voltage limit to well above your pack voltage. The CA will now not let any throttle input drive the bike. That works with my CA V2.23, bet it's the same story for the V3 CA.

Yes, only sell your bike if you have plans for a newer and better build. Otherwise you could go by the way side for years before you have an Ebike again.

Just got to get creative with the torque arm on the other side. This may involve cutting some extra steel flat bars and custom bending them to attach to the frame and the torque arm handle, but it can be done.

I think you are super ambitious with the CF after the fiberglass box was kicked. I don't thing a heating pads are way to go man.
