Re: KiwiEVs next project fast EV

The aesthetics are awesome and the quality looks too good for a ute. Enjoy the skids :D
Would be interesting to hear the view of ICE enthusiast when seeing such a familiar V layout.

Re: Well that is different, LFN Bike

Wow, that's odd and ugly.
Seems to have a drive shaft with pinion arrangement?. Angle of the derailleur is interesting.
Surely the shaft drive recently posted on ES is much more appealing.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Hi Cd, interesting post, in the 6th photo are the balance leads of 4 x 6S packs connected in parallel?
Is the BC168 displaying average cell voltage as though it's one big 6S pack? Cheers

Re: jonescg's NEW electric racebike BUILD thread!

Tough luck, was it the front end that lost traction? Looks like the crash knobs did a reasonable job. Is the rear brake master-cylinder snapped off or is that the photo angle?

Tidy rig, would take the whole lot but can't offer 2K asking price. Can you sell the bulk charger separate, shipped to Brisbane? Cheers.

Thanks for posting, it takes guts to expose such a disappointing event. Be happy that the photos alone will inform people. BTW I'm glad you're OK.

Re: The first and BEST Qulbix Raptor mid-drive build!

Thanks for posting, is the frame receptive to welding? Welding to date looks very neat and straight forward for a MIG? I like the addition of lightness (speed-holes).

Re: Where oh where can I find a BMS board for 35 A 14s Li io

I've been looking into the BMS (20S) issue albeit with less knowledge than those on the forum. I've found the BesTech BMS has the right spec but the communication adaptor is $300 or over 2x the cost of the BMS. Alternatively BesTech will program to your spec but what is the point of a programmable B...

Re: How to get the proper advice, read before asking

Hi Wes, thanks for posting this info is helpful. The only addition I would make is to provide examples of the battery terminology commonly used on the forum and described in the section on battery choice.

Re: Stealth Flux owners builds and pics

Personally, I prefer all white without the black seam. Makes the blackouts pop and the white is more solid with an appearance of one piece/ billet.

Re: Sn0wchyld's 12kw custom frame mid drive

Hi Snow, really great design, I'm agree with the swingarm pivot and overall design approach.
Are your CAD file propriety or something you are willing to share? I have contacts able to run basic FEA to give feedback on design and construction requirements.
Cheers
