Getting closer to seeing just how far you can go with friction drive. No endless calculations, just throw more volts at it and see what happens .

You are the FD man!

will this one use the same concept as your last ones that uses the sliding plate mount to have variable pressure on the tire?

-EDIT- Wow, no responses at all. I guess everyone is getting sick of friction drive builds. lol

I was using a Towerpro 5330 at 12s when I was riding it. My gf is running on 6s with a turnigy Turnigy 50-65.
I went with a simple seat post mount on this one. The roller is higher on the tire than I like but it still works perfect.
