I'm not one to advocate ignorant lawlessness. However, I do encourage restraint to avoid visable "PC"... or typically referred to as, Probable Cause. In layman's terms... don't give a LEO an obvious reason to detain you - which, by law, he is usually required to have. Actually, its the lower standa...

Re: Cute Q100H Clutch modification

I'm not sure what you're referring to when you mention the motor lubricant. Do you just mean the grease on the gears, or are you planning on filling this with ferro-fluid? A synthetic based oil, but still undecided which one. Buk___ describes the spring problem quite accurately and eloquently below...

Re: Sortimo electric cargo trikes

In comparison to 2 wheelers, and to a lesser degree tilting three wheelers, the fact that a non tilting trike is slower around corners and more likely to fall over while turning is a matter of simple and well understood physics. And not whisper of detailed physics or multi-track vehicle dynamics to...

Re: Sortimo electric cargo trikes

Are you implying that non-tilting, utility trikes are slow and unsafe? I think he's not implying it, but saying it. And it's true. Like for like, the trike will put you on your head sooner, at a lower speed, than any two-wheeler. I've been working with one of my friends to design an e-pedicab that ...

That is the purpose exactly: A trike that does handle speed and power safely.
Because that is the most important turn off to trikes, to have horrible handling at speed.
Help me out here... I'm a bit foggy about your statement.

Re: Sortimo electric cargo trikes

Tilting designs offer NO advantages at lower speeds - and if hauling cargo, reduced payload capacity. And hauling on slick streets??.. Forget it. You can build significantly cheaper and carry far more payload with a non-tilting, 3-wheeled delta platform.

Low efficiency? 20% is where PV is at right now. And a whopping 15% 12 years ago, when i purchased a 185w Sanyo HIT - let's see,.that's less than 0.5% improvent in PV efficiency per/yr.

Re: Would you put solar panel on your electric vehicle

Would you put solar panel on your electric vehicle? Not with any of the current, low efficiency PVs on the market. If the on-board battery is designed for the destination distance, why lower you vehicle's overall efficiency by carrying low efficient PVs? 1.) PVs are not cheap. 2.) PVs are easily da...

To carry them to a mid way point and charge ideally between 11 and 3 then hit the road. Any charging along the way is bonus Energy.
Why the vague answer? What is the distance between grid charging plugs? And what happens when the weather doesn't cooperate "midway"?
