Re: Dash clock losing the correct time

I'm interested in what other solutions to range estimation are. Maybe whatever I go with for that would also be able to display a functional clock. I'm not really keen on swapping out parts. But adding bits on seems a safer route. I'm assuming the range estimation on EVs is driven primarily by the v...

Dash clock losing the correct time

So my clock is losing the current time overnight. Is there a watch battery somewhere that needs to be replaced?

The manual doesn't mention anything about it.

Re: WTB: Vectrix (or functional equivilant)

So after some weeks of negotiation and waiting. I finally got my first EV this week: https://i.imgur.com/hjEvaCD.jpg And I'm pretty stoked with it. The more I ride, the more I like. It's just awesome. Being able to regen is so much fun. It's got more go than my Scarabeo 200. Which you really notice ...

Calb cell pack unhealthy

Seems soon I will have a bunch of CALB cells from a pair of Vectrix's. And at least some of the cells are bad. That's all I know at the moment. Now to the questions. My goal is to: a) get one Vectrix running reliably with as much range as it can handle. b) if there are enough remaining cells, look a...

Re: X1 vs S6000?

So a short review after the test ride: - Not having a clutch meant take off from the lights is smooth as butter. Even a little too peppy down low to the point I would be worried about traction in the wet. Configurable apparently so a non-issue. - Silence is golden. Love it. Small bit of electric whi...

Good grief, steer clear of anything zev. They're horrible, and don't meet speed range or acceleration specs.

X1 vs S6000?

I'm going to test drive the X1 next week. I guess the main competition in my mind the ZEV S6000 . The biggest concern other than the price is the small wheels and form factor of the X1. I just don't see it being a good commuter for me (22km each way, 80kph zones, some long steep hills). Leaning towa...

Other parts such as battery pack, motor, air con, charger etc possibly now available too... (change of plans)
So... the big question is how much do you want for the motor and controller?

And what sort of condition is the battery pack in?

Re: Electric Motor Cycle 9 KW

Doesn't look like it can take a pillion passenger. Not that I do that regularly but it's handy sometimes. Maybe I keep my current bike and commute with this most days. Rego isn't so bad for scooters. ~$300/yr.

Why do so many people post here and then disappear never to be seen again?

Re: Oversized RC BLDC Outrunners

2. Typical RPM is usually most ICE's peak so will need a good hi-revving gearbox (thin oil). Yeah I found that the RPM ranges up to 10k, which means in practice I'd need a 2:1 gear box or similar. The Motenergy motors would probably be more durable for the price. Most of their stuff is really low p...

Re: Oversized RC BLDC Outrunners

Why couldn't this be used in a small car... ~1100kg... 50kw is enough to get it going, maybe not fast... Is it lacking in some other way? Really low continuous rating? No Torque? No mention of RPM range... so maybe it'd need a gearbox. I'm looking for CHEAP alternatives for a small car conversion. 8...
