I'm not a business, Mark just missed the ampersand and capitalised some of the letters
LOL, THAT'S funny.
Like the frame!
Thanks. Ditto! Yours
looks awesome.. But searching your posts, I'm having that feeling like after months of searching, the treasure pops up under my nose: Re: Adjust LVC on Infineon 18 FET soft-start controller?
(I'm putting it in my thread so I can find it again!) Hah. Ah, mods...
Have two myself - an i-drive 1.0 which is my race bike and the i-drive 1500 ... but it has got too many cracks ...
Interesting. Where are the cracks? Any issues w/ the headset? i've got a new one (sealed: $70) on order. Not sure if it's the extra stress from the fork, or if the existing headset is trashed but my little rebuild job lasted a day before it got sloppy again. New one should be in soon.
Just like controllers are rated for Current, I wonder if these bikes can be rated for drops. Also wonder about the effect of the extra weight on the frame. For example, would it be the same stress on the bike if i weighed 200lbs as if i weighed 170 + 30 lbs of motor, batts, etc.
I'd love to take it on trails but the fact of the matter is that it's primarily and urban assault vehicle. iIm going to mount a camera on my helmet and record the morning commute. It's pretty sick. Poor b*stards stuck in traffic and I'm slicing through, leaping out ahead, taking curbs, etc. Usually my most fun of the day: my 5 mile 12 minute commute.
Anyway, it's getting late. I just tested the bike. Regen is not what I was hoping for. Seems the same as w/ 846 board. I've not yet hooked up the ebrake, so we'll see how fast it'll stop me when I get those connected up. I put a 1K, truly 986 ohm resistor in place of R12, so maybe that can be tweaked. That's why the 'Adjust LVC.." thread got my attention.
New fets from Methods arrived today (Thanks!). But dang, for someone who hasn't yet beefed up the traces, I'm wondering how easy it is to mess up and splash solder all over the place, esp between the fet pins. Perhaps tomorrow I'll feel more courageous...
I want the sucker to stop in REGEN like I were putting on the brakes!
