, after putting some better forks on and 26x2.35 Intense knobby tyres the ride has improved a lot, I've actually got some grip now, heaps more.
After a heavy landing the frame downtube bent very slightly at the shock pivot point so I welded in a strengthening brace around the shock to stop it bending any more. Strange as it may sound, I don't mind the bend as it has adjusted the bike geometry for a better handling feel, as the change of shock angle during the initial mod made the bike sit up slightly higher than before, it's back now back closer to normal. I had planned to brace it earlier but never got around to it, glad now I didn't do it then.
Last week I wot at very low rpm up about a 40 deg hill and the blue side fets shorted to + in the 12x irf4310 Lyen controller. Replaced them with the P140NF75 fets that I've been waiting to try out, been hammering it and they seem to be doing the job well, and heat is about the same at 3000w, even went up the same hill slowly as a test. I would expect them to handle it considering I've ran these type in a 6 fet controller at 4500 watt peaks. Thinking about a little extra shunt now...so I can tackle the 60 deg hillsclimbs!
I've also programmed the controller speed control to 120%, top speed increased from 39 to 46kmh. It's good getting something for nothing.
