Well, the board is far from finished. However, I did just enough preliminary wiring and strapped a 6S pack to the deck and went for a late night ride. All I can say is HOLY FREAKING CRAP!!! Good grief this thing is a freakin BEAST!
I plugged in the pack stepped on and eased on the throttle. It chirped a touch, then launched. I thought I had a good idea of how hard it would pull. Well, I was wrong......... I tried everything from leaning forward to grabbing the nose of the board and it just has too much power. I love it! If I grab the nose and crouch down as far as I can, it still wheelies.
Now, I must say, it is very docile if I am careful with the throttle. So, it is not uncontrollable. But, my throttle finger is, shall we say, a bit over ambitious. I did not fall (thank the Lord). I am 42 years old. I do not need to break my arm playing with this thing. But, I have to say, it is VERY exciting. Now I see what the draw is to these things.........
Also, 25mph is freaking FAST on a board! Sheesh, I am glad it is not geared any faster.
I need to get my harness made and the lower deck done so I can get this thing truly finished and rideable.
I will post my findings when I have more info for you.
1% of the world's population can think "Outside the box". The rest are firmly stuck within the box. Where are you?
