Voltron-Evo; jonescg's new electric race bike

Not once, as long as I keep my body weight right I can just pin it and hold it flat.
The front just lifts or skims the ground a bit at about 1/2 track but I don't have to back off or rear brake at all.

To be honest it was all pretty easy.

Edit: yep, like you say it's dialed in pretty well.

Voltron-Evo; jonescg's new electric race bike

Chris will be able to answer the technical details of how close to the limit we are and any changes he could make to optimise it for the drags but I have asked to have the bike to be set up to be very 'rideable' (its faster than being an uncontrollable animal) I am fairly sure the ramp rate for the ...

https://www.facebook.com/motorplex/videos/10156356892875386/ Its a shame this discussion started when I am now at work and the time slips are at home so we cant compare our best run but...

eFXC 2015 - Australian Electric Superbikes

It's interesting how everyone talks about the straight as if that's the only reason we won. The reasons we won are because Chris built an amazing bike that performed flawlessly all year, it handles well and it was ridden ok. The team worked hard all year on the bike and at events to get the results....

Voltron-Evo; jonescg's new electric race bike

The motor was too hot so the controller backed the power off. Chris will correct me if i'm wrong but I think there are a couple different motor temps he has set where it will start by backing the power off before shutting it off altogether if it gets really hot. Its set pretty conservatively for pro...

Well what a great round we had at Winton. That was the only time I can ever remember coming second and being ok with it. Normally I get a little depressed if I don't win but this time its all good. For a quick roundup we ran just over 6 seconds faster than last year which is proof that the input I g...

Thanks for the edit. The sliders sure are a consumable, they last me a fair while however on account of my rather short legs(they made me measure my leg length twice when I got the good suit made, they didn't believe it the first time haha). I let them touch but don't put weight on the knees as its ...

Voltron-Evo; jonescg's new electric race bike

Cheers, no big secrets, as per any bike it was mainly a combination of having it at a track I know and the time to test things. We had the forks re-valved and some preload taken out. Some pretty huge ride height changes were also made to lower the whole bike. We basicly had time to just try ridiculo...

Chris your amazing. You actually did it. You built a bike from scratch and out of the box in its first year it won the championship. Well done and what an amazing bike you have built. Thanks for letting me be a part of it. The last round went like clockwork for us. Out of the box the bike was runnin...

Chris, you are correct it is a 2 day event but I'm pretty sure club1000 is only racing on Sat unless the race schedule has changed. (I'll check for everyone) There should be some practice start sessions scheduled in for our next practice. I'll be sure to try get us out there and prove to the club it...

Yeah, wow, what a round!! I flew in on an erly flight to Sydney and went straight to a workshop where the guys had been working furiously on a new, lighter battery pack. This pack is about 2/3 the battery capacity and about 28kg lighter. Importantly the weight was coming off from up high and the fro...

So now it gets interesting. We are about to travel to Sydney for the second last round at Wakefield where Danny Ripperton is very strong. The Varley bikes are reportedly sorted and running well. Catavolt was looking fast and has a trick or two up their sleeve for more power. We are slowly getting a ...

Competetive against Voltron-evo? I hope not, but a couple of Brammo's would have a heap of fun fighting it out together. Seen the 250cc proddy racing and how much fun those guys and girls have?
Get 3 or 4 and keep track of your own points and have an unofficial Proddy championship?

I'm only a rider in the EFX-C but I think a Kart series is a brilliant idea, when I just found this thread I was actually looking for electric Kart info for something to get into with my son later on. With the bikes it's a bit different and we have very few rules and it's very much a technology and ...

Lap two of the first race.

When I get home I should be able to make a better video. Chris summed it up nicely, a good weekend's racing and all the riders were pushing very hard. I'm slowly learning to slow the big girl down and get her around a corner.

Pretty close to it. There was ice in the puddles on Sunday as we were heading out to race.
I'll leave it to Chris to do a writeup, it's been hectic and he won't be back quite back yet.

I will say we had a good weekend and I had a lot of fun.
