  1. The seller Green and Fashion travelling has washed their hands of it. I raised a dispute and only got a partial refund. I wanted to exchange for a new unit but the seller refused asking me to post it back. That means I'd be down money having to post a 20kg package abroad. I'll just say it now. He has acted like a right 'cant'. Really, really dented my first foray into eucs.
  2. Just read a thread about another forum user having their tesla fail after a few miles. I opened up one side and couldnt see anything looking out of place. Probably need to open up the other side. I'm hoping it's just some wires vibrating against the plastic shell. Here's some more video for a collective assessment. Tesla Asthma 1 Tesla Asthma 2
  3. Hi @Marty Backe. Yes it is a brand new Tesla. This is part of the issue I was having with my ali vendor. I'll take a peak inside. I know the low hum should be there as discussed earlier (and I found an old 2017 youtube review in which I could hear a similar pitch). But the more noisy part is a concern. I guess I've nothing to lose opening the side panels. Not like my vendor gives a sh!t with post sales service! I just didn't to accidentally break something before I've even put a couple of miles on it!
  4. I'm sure my Tesla has asthma. I've noticed it seems to make a loud rumble when I'm leaning to one side before getting on. Also at slow speed. I've only done one kilometre inside my flat but just worried my unit is not running as it should. Sounds like it's under load without me even on it. Quick short audio clip for actual sounds. https://drive.google.com/file/d/103ndVUmjFSX2VTJXvIfbcmmNH1Pq5P_v/view?usp=drivesdk
  5. I'm hoping the later Tesla v1s have the bp coupe plug. I notice mine shares the same tire as the v2. I'm sure there are other shared components. Just not sure about the motherboard. @Hansolo how long did it take to fit? And where did you source your button? Oh, also, it looks like the button is pressed and then stays in the active (or coupe) position. I like this approach as it allows you to adjust your hand grip when carrying the wheel without disengaging the coupe. Just fyi i use coupe instead of cut off just to match the image.
  6. I'm curious what the actual cost price of a unit is. Any ideas? I get that business wise there would be a time to recover staffing, HQ, r&d etc. But i know from my escooter the retail price was 50% above wholesale price. I'd have been interested but i think i just want to get good with one wheel first before considering a new one. Heck it took me 7year of snowboarding before i actually committed to buying one (obvs rental isnt an option with eucs).
  7. That sounds very much like the voice of possibly painful experience! I mentioned that number range as i noticed mine a 0.5km on the clock when i got it. I assume that was there little obstacle course qc I've seen on YouTube (not necessarily GW but some euc company). And it's also why i wondered if it was possible to clock them like older cars. I like 'new new' things. As for the joke of their QC, it seems fine to me.. but this coming from bitter and consistent misery of deal with Nike quality control (my most recent pick up has a wonky 'E' in NIKE...you know, only their own logo! The QC point does make me wonder whether I should open the unit to check what it all kooks like inside (I saw a youtube guy do that). Maybe even use some blue loctite on the screws and put lithium grease on the annoyingly squeaky peddles. Is that the done thing for GW wheels?
  8. Hi all, I was wondering about a second euc recently and it got me wondering about mileage. I know there are threads with how many miles people have done and it seems this, like for a car is a big deciding factor in purchasing. Is the app info on an euc mileage (gotway in my case) something that is always fact? I.e is it like a car odometer which cant be reset our tampered with (by joe public). So if i bought a brand new euc i can expect 300-800metres on the clock which is their quality control. Is that correct or is there the possibility that they could clock 5 or 10miles or even more and then reset the odometer/ mileage. I'm curious as it emphasises the importance of picking a good seller and or accepting that the true mileage is more a measure of different aspects off the when (rider weight, terrain, mileage etc). Thoughts?
  9. Yeah. I read that. But from what ib can see on videos is that the v1 does too. I thought maybe the led cluster had increased the number of bulbs or something like that but it looks the same.
  10. Something lost in translation here I think - from what I can see on Tesla V1 they all had a fully light ring. Watched a few videos just now and seems to confirm. I wonder what they meant? Maybe no break in lighting between the sections.
  11. Wow. That's certainly seen some miles. Agree with all your points. I was looking into buying the V1 side panels to restore the 'waterproofing' and get the comfort back of a v2 if I go for it. I am intrigued into the board and what changes happened there because perhaps that is the reason for the price. Is the revised MSX 10-15% more than the original?
  12. Okay. Prices seemed a bit more adjusted from the initial launch. Still $200 more from the same seller.
  13. Anybody actually tried a Tesla 2? I'm struggling to see the reasons for the price hike difference (couple of extra LEDs, cut.off button and.tinny speakers doesn't feel like $300 of change.
  14. Oh yes. I read that he was thinking of getting rid of the msx too!
  15. Surely a 14D is a backward step spec and performance wise? Your dilemma is similar to mine. I wanted one ewheel. Ended up with thr the tesla. The weight.part is the biggest challenge. No matter whether scooter or whee you'll the bigger.boys weighimg 20kf or higher. I would have suggested ks16x as you get the more manoeuverable diameter of 16'. The boucy amd comfort of the msx via the 3inch wheel and a good top speed/range. However at.24kg. I'm not how well that'd go down. Interested to hear whether if you know have any regrets selling your tesla?
