@EG, The charger is bad ass man. It's still going strong with no issues.
I'm starting to have a bit more time to get this thing finished. Last time I posted I blew the rear tire. Since then I picked up 2 and got the rear replaced. I also let my coworker ride it which wasn't a good idea (he's in his 60's) and it immediately got away from him. The scooter flipped and landed on the side ruining both calipers and the front rotor. I've replaced the calipers, but I'm waiting on the new rotor. There is a small current leak in my setup, EG thinks its coming from the caps in the controllers. Rather than replacing them, I'm adding a high power switch to the scooter. I also just started on the new deck. I should have some progress pics to show soon.
People occasionally ask if they can ride my EV's...99% of the time the answer "no way". I have one friend that I trust on them...everyone else...not going to happen. They just can't handle what we consider to be "decent performance". It's why factory made EV's are so lame and weak. I want an EV that I have to hang on to or else it will leave me behind. I want it to pop wheelies and be able to do them at 30% throttle and be able to out accelerate most cars. If it can't do that, then back to the drawing board! On my Currie, There's settings in the controller I can do and then via a switch select 3 power settings. I haven't bothered, but I thought about setting a couple of user modes so that it is horrible and slow and lame at the flip of a switch or fast like I want. That way I can possibly hand it to a noob and they won't get into trouble so easily.
I'm glad the charger is working out!
What's the max loading you've done on the BMS? I forget now what it's limits are, but whatever you want to throw at it, it ought to handle now.
