  1. @Michael Tucker is the use of 18650s really that much of a deal-breaker? Doesn't the 100v MSX use them, while still retaining the title of fastest stock wheel?
  2. I know @kangzsy has one on order and tells me Daniel Kot is just waiting for the extra BMS's to come in so he build the extended packs. I would expect them to arrive in June. Well if money isn't a factor, you are regularly fighting cars and potholes, and you want to go as far as possible, the Monster is your guy. If you care about the feel of the ride itself and wanted to be able to use it for practical errands like shopping or to take it on public transport, an 18" wheel sounds like it would fit you best.
  3. Get the Monster if your use case is only on-road. Get the EUCservice MSS if not. The motor is literally painted cherry red after modification to distinguish it from MSP-X's and 'high speed MSP's. You don't do that unless you're confident in your product. It's something like 2350w and Adam from WrongWay! claims it is torquer than the 2500w MSP while still being faster than the 2000w 100v MSX. It is what I will buy to wait until suspension wheels have 3kwh batteries and go 50mph.
  4. Accountability through public visibility is probably our biggest tool to ensuring the DfTossers make sensible decisions during this critical period. I absolutely abhor social media, but unless we all tweet some sense to some people that matter this will just go the way of Null's post above. The gov.uk forum doesn't become publicly reviewable once it's done, so they can still decide what they like even if the majority of responses are pro-sense. Otherwise I worry PLEVs will be legal in the UK just in the way that cannabis-derived medicines are now legal in the UK; nothing but a technicality perpetuating the existing harms of illegally. End of political rant, please have a nice day.
  5. Nitrous oxide could be a laugh.
  6. Has anybody ever tried filling a wheel with nitrogen? I saw an escooter on Reddit showing off it's little green dust cap and it got me thinking. N is supposed to be slightly bouncier and be more efficient on battery use due to having less mass spinning around the axle amplified by centrifugal force. I thought not only could this be good for saving our precious rims from dents, but also may noticeably reduce the gyro effect. In a 2.5" wheel like the 18XL that would mean much more agility at high speeds, especially over differently banking terrain. This is why I cannot personally get to grips with slime in tyres 16", as it ruins my high speed control. In a 3" wheel like an MSX, this may mean much better battery life as you could inflate to a higher PSI due to the additional bounciness and have less rolling resistance, also may mean a few more mph in top speed due to the decreased centrifugal mass. What do you think?
  7. @Lucasz any idea of when we may see more about this wheel? Is this another pulse glider or will we see some pictures and maybe a price this sometime in the summer?
  8. Now I can have an S18 and an MSS 😈
  9. Is there any noticeable improvement in battery life on the new firmware? Worth upgrading or stay on 2.01?
  10. Open EUCworld and go to wheel settings, then look for the Bluetooth audio toggle. It may just be turned off.
  11. On Facebook he has 'confirmed' he is working on a 715wh Gotway MTen3 and will be doing one possibly two custom variants of the Kingsong S18.
  12. Such a sexy sexy wheel. I do wonder if the anodisation on the bronzed suspension framed is an uphill battle though, it looks fantastic but as soon as it experiences rubbing or a few kujirolls over dirt and then it's back to the silver underneath. If only it had twice the battery and came in a 2000w variant for peace of mind at speed.
  13. https://mobile.twitter.com/GlosCityPolice/status/1249340405457567744 Here is a link to the police's original tweet, if any one wanted to leave any positive comments supporting EUCs, their safety and sustainability. It won't take very long for the daily mail trolls to drown out any possible logical conversation and ruin this opportunity to preserve the public impression we've maintained so far. Negativity won't help us one bit, so if you have nothing nice to say say it here and not there.
  14. I wonder how the range will be impacted by the suspension seen on this new generation of wheels. From U-strides latest video it seems the MSP (ridden properly) also gets very poor range in comparison to last year's gen of wheels due to its beefy motor and operating voltage. I was all ready to drop 2k on a 2200wh MSP but just the sheer aesthetic value of the S18 makes that feel too potentially regrettable... WHY does it have to have such a miniscule battery and handicapped top speed?! Even in the teaser video of it riding around those streets you can hear the beeps tapping the rider on the shoulder and saying 'Hey, I've noticed you're having fun right now. You better be careful, because if you have slightly more fun or god forbid get lost in the moment I'm going to betray you and throw you to the floor. In the name of safety, of course." Gotway's statement saying there will be no more wheels this year really worries me. A 20" wheel would have nicely cushioned the same bumps many people will now ride over with their V11s or S18s. I hope they pull through.
  15. Try going to a decent vape shop. They will order big boxes of cells regularly so may know how to help you get your hands on what you need.
