Re: West Coast US Events

Nothing short of tremendous Luke 'ole Boy :!: Nicobe thought the matchup of 2012 could be Thud and Luke. But last night, 6/16/12, I think he missed it. Christophe, seasoned mo-ped builder and racer with roots way over in France, where serious mo-ped racing reinghs supreme, had a go at it with Luke. ...

Re: West Coast US Events

Todd, your registration is always 'sponsored' but my pockets aren't so deep. Maybe this fall. Yep, what'd I give to see all the big name racers get together for a real championship run :!:

(Dogmanz, PaulD, AGK, Christophe, Todd, Luke, Zombiess, Stevil, Farfle, who did I forget?)

Re: SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing Sat April 7th 2012 Grange Rac

No I haven't Stevil, All sheets were sacked up and handed off to MBR. Actually, I think that's 1 of the changes needed, that more than 1 person should have their hands on results, whether it's me or someone else, not right that 1 person shoulders all aspects of the event. In the future, no reason wh...

E-racers Place Strong Finishes at Grange

Ed, I missed you there! As always I got busy and not as social as I hoped. A classy little 1982? Girelli crashed me and so had to spend too much time trying to affect a repair plus scorekeeping. I think I DQ'ed him later for wearing white socks with dark pants (just kidding, racing was a blast, the ...

Farfle, that's a GREAT foto! It took me 30min to just find out who tagged me in the 1st hard left 2nd lap of heat2. Apparently we had a misunderstanding as what the line was, I considered it in close in the mid of the turn, he thought I should of maintained a lower path but came up on him. I wonder ...

The e-s now can run faster than the mopes, if they burn down a few laps later

Re: Deadly Looks; Me an' the Lipos' Gonna Die

After getting scoring for Grange ready I turned my attention to hall wiring combos. Ahah, noticed a culprit. When I plugged the Halls in, the green wire slipped out of the plastic housing a mm, kinda tricky to notice. When I'd disconnect, the green wire would retract back into the housing and the pi...

Deadly Looks; Me an' the Lipos' Gonna Die

Got the proper freewheels and finished up 2 bikes to race Grange this Sat April 7. But. . . my lo-power (2K) racer won't start. The infinineon controller gets pretty warm, and the 9 continent motor lurches a couple of inches when the CA is reset but nada. The CA reads 74.5Volt, right on for charged ...

Re: Ordered a Bafang 48v500w from BMSBattery but go this

That's sorta a cross of the BPMI and II. Seems they're using up whatever covers and innards that have laying around. I have a 14 code that runs just like an 8 code, go figure. Aside from coler and the cover having a slightly larger flange above the spoke holes and not having screws to open it up, ha...

Re: Bafang BPM II

Yes, I heard the same. I sorta remember a 'You Tube' that showed V1, V2, and V3 of the BMC (not BMS). V1 stated that the freewheel or clutch sorta dragged. V2 was to correct that but the brazing on the clutch would come undone. At last V3 skipped a clip washer to make room for the slightly wider gea...
