This shall be the first ESC i will buy(was yours the newer 10mhz model?) plan to add extra couple of caps and that shall be it for time being Hope your modded setup performs as you expect
AussieJester wrote:Yup thats the puppy im talkin about 12mhz thought was 10mhz soz my bad...And yes you have done what i plan to do add caps and heatsink. Did you go for two or more caps?
Would you be interested in selling the ESC at all? I won't have the $$to spare for a few weeks give you time to test and decide if the modded setup is better for you? Keep it in mind anywayz bud i have to buy a ESC either way would prefer throwing dollars to a fellow member of ES than Hobby City.

I have followed Frank G for years he is one hell of a guy. But then again i have followed you from forum to forum. so i could follow you creations and have a good laugh. I have been thinking about your stabilisers you could use a car wiper motor or window motor as these are geared cheap and light and easy to conceal with a design feature just a thought.
2) I did not imagine trying to cut and extend the BB crankshaft itself; I did not think it would take the torque if I did that. Now I know that it *can*, though I am hoping you will post as much specific detail as possible about the actual methods and materials used on the shaft extension. Is it solid inside, or *just* the tube-over-shaft? What wall thickness is the tube, and what kind of steel?
AussieJester wrote:I have used a section of the tube i listed in OP, the smaller ID with 3mm wall thickness.
I actually had to press the two shaft halves into the tube section hence the accurate result (straight and true)
Im VERY confident in my welding abilites and TBH i couldn't see any electric motor i could mount breaking it that said, it wont be under anywhere near that load, the bottom brackets wont be under electric power at all, my weak chook legs couldn't push in a cardboard box let alone breaking 3mm wall thickness mild steel hahahaa..
best of luck with yout build FYI Choppers US sell extra wide bottom brackets if you want to buy off shelf...which having seen your excellent custom builds i seriously doubt so 120mm wide if make your own mate
AussieJester wrote:You have a metal lathe!!!11oneoneone Turn up your own shaft from bar stock sheesh haha I used
to turn up half shafts for my 1/8th scale RC race cars on the lathe with my eyes shut easy peezy buddy...
FYI...my "press" equals BIG mofo vice LoL...Honestly though, i seriously doubt if you get even some decent tacks
on the shaft you aint going to break it in a hurry...buuuuut if your a biut "iffy" about it you actually have 3 options!
Seeing your a member on Moteredbikes...checkout my latest post in 'Genral discussion" Eno has a spare OCC chopper, the rear rim hub and tire are now "spoken for" by me, but the frame isn't and it has a extra wide BB, perhaps offer Eno some $$ for the BB and shaft if he is willing to cutz the frame up, the rear section and head tube would be good to grab also making cutting the frame more worthwhile...just a thought....
If he was local to me I'd love to get the whole frame, because parts of it would be useful for several ideas I've got.
AussieJester wrote:HAHA yeah he's in Sydney across the otherside of OZ and i happened to say exactly the same thing to him in regards to purchasing the whole frame if he was 'local' LoL...
I would opt for using mild steel bar, turning it to desired shape size etc i would not do the external thread (like bolt) i would drill the end of the shaft and tap it so bolt screws in......then theres the tappered ends... i have no solution for that off hand, mill would be required though, do you have a mill attachment for the lathe OR a milling machine in that workshop of yours? Once all thats done i would pop it in my furnace heat the bejesus out of it before dropping it in water to harden it
...OR you could just pay 30 bucks for one LoL...
Best of luck anywayz mate, these things are sent to test us, life would be no fun at all if it was easy would it?
