  1. I used my wheel to shoot the first remote controlled 18 wheeler yesterday as we were right next to an airport. Pretty cool! BTW does the LA group do rides in LA? I'd be down to do something this next week if anyone is down.
  2. I'm watching for the next ride!
  3. I don't have this problem at all on the V8. I also have pretty strong legs. I grew up playing hockey and riding BMX and still ride Mtn Bikes. I can go slow on my wheel, but I cant keep it rolling straight. maybe that's just a practice thing. I have almost 500 miles under my belt so far. 400 on the V8 and 85 on the M-Super. Maybe "horrifying" is too strong of a word, I just don't like the idea of failure at 25-30 mph. I wish there was a store here in LA. You can't even look at them before you buy them.
  4. I'm debating these two as well. I currently have a V8, and an M-Super. The M-Super kinda dropped in my lap when one of my best friends saw me riding my V8 and that night decided he had to have one, read a review and in a couple days had the powerful Gotway. I went out to help him get started and he immediately crashed the shit out of it. The thing was doing summer salts down his street. He was horrified. His wife was horrified. So he gave it to me to buy for $1000. I took it with the intent of using it to shoot video from, but the first shoot I got on (Shooting a Mclaren 720s) as soon as I bent my knees to get a low angle it would start wobbling. REALLY, REALLY bad! So I'd back off and lose the shot. So I don't love it compared to my V8. What I DO like about it is the solid feeling which I assume is due to the xtra 20 lbs and the 18" wheel, the stability off road and of course the speed. I did get it up to 36mph once or twice (according to DarknessBot) and it was kinda scary! The tilting forward when turning is the dumbest thing E-V-E-R! And walking it is a joke. One time if fell over and started sawing away on my ankle. I had a scab for 2 weeks from the hungry 18" tire. So I have two needs. One is doing errands, using the Subway, and basically goofing around. Right now that's 95% of my usage. The beauty of the V8 is it's light, well mannered when walking it and the button under the handle is very handy when walking down stairs. What I DON'T like about the V8 is: the lack of battery life, I get cramps from the small pedals on long journeys when I don't wear sturdy shoes (I have big feet) and the lack of power/stability. It's also pretty wobbly sub 5mph, but maybe they all are? Ideally I'd have one EUC that did everything and KS16s seems to have potential for that. My secondary need is filming which I'm hoping to do more of in 2018. The lure of all that power on the Tesla is inviting, and it's only 4lbs heavier than the 16s...But the thought of a unit that might cease up at any time is horrifying. I got Jason's 2 cents @ EWheels, but I'd like to get the forums thoughts.

    Yeah, I would have liked to have joined. I'm debating getting either a KS 16s or the Tesla. Love my V8 for errands and the subway, but speed and battery life isn't good enough anymore as I've progressed. Plus I've got big feet.

    I've got a couple wheels, I own a V8. and an M-Super that a friend of mine bought, but he never rides it. Looking to sell or rent if someone was interested. Looking to connect with fellow EUC riders in LA, I'm debating the Tesla or Kingsong 16s and would love to see them in person.
