Re: Nobe 3-wheel EV car

I'm a big Patrick McGoohan fan, so I've read plenty about this. I've never met anyone from that '6 of One' club who probably have the proper answer, I just know it is bandied about that it was the 6, of course near identical to a 7. Obviously the preferred discussion to believe it was the 6, right? ...

Re: Nobe 3-wheel EV car

Actually you are correct to be reminded of Patrick McGoohan. While 'The Prisoner' Number 6 did indeed drive a Lotus 6, which probably is where the deranged agent came up with his number, the two John Drakes, agents of NATO and Military Intelligence, drove plenty of cars you must be remembering from ...

Re: Tempted to lick my 50 volt battery

How safe is it? I mean what are my chances of death? Perhaps if you had a nose piercing you could put that on the negative as your ground and use you tongue more---positively. If you're hoping to make it on TV this way, they no longer make '1000 Ways to die.' I’ll wear goggles to be safe. That'll k...

Re: Mongoose CX24V200 Restoration and Hop Up

I don't think you even HAVE a swingarm, right? I don't think you have a front disk brake. You have a smaller motor, I'd say you HAVE to replace it while you might be content with a bigger controller on the 450w. For awhile there I wanted the cx450 pretty bad, but they were only available in damaged ...

I think Neptronix should enter and name it after himself. The only board name I can think of that would be good. But certainly, the rest of you could try yours.

That's super cool and i'm going to have to look into that if i can find a 3d model of my car. Cheers. Oh, that won't be a problem. Maybe not a perfect model. The free model tends to be low poly, maybe some details missing. If you wanted to do some finish work or something. . . . https://hum3d.com/t...
