  1. How do I go about discharging electricity on the mainboard?
  2. Thanks very much. did you end up having to add more glue on the wires after putting them back in?
  3. I got a new Gotway Tesla replacement board but it looks completely different from my existing one. Does anyone here have an idea of what should go where. I am at a complete loss.
  4. Thanks @MaxLinux, that's good to know. Looks like I might be going with @Marty Backe recommendation and replacing the board. I'll wait to see what my dealer does first. He reached out to Gotway so hopefully I'll hear something soon. Definitely want this resolved as soon as possible. In the short time I've ridden I feel like my legs have fused with the wheel.
  5. It was really rainy but I took it really easy. I would say under 25k the entire time. My concern is that the rain got into the control board somehow. I was fortunate that the cutout happened when I was going very slowly over the bump.
  6. Would that have happened from water damage or just regular use? Haven't heard of the Tesla having these issues but perhaps it's more common than I know.
  7. Right now my dealer is reaching out to Gotway and I'll wait for him to get back. But the next step is to start taking it apart. Hopefully it's something I can fix. The battery seems fine and even the bluetooth seems to connect. I'll make sure to take picture and post them here if I do start to take it apart. The other thing is that when the wheel is off it now feels gritty to roll around. I seem to remember that it was much easier to roll when the unit was powered off.
  8. I recently bough a Gotway Tesla (V1) and have been absolutely delighted with the performance and the feel. Recently I started to commute to work with it and it has been a nice alternative to my bike. Up until this point the wheel has fallen on a grass a few times and on the sidewalk at extremely low speeds. A couple days ago I decided to take it out for a ride in the rain, something that I've done in the past. This time the rain was a bit heavier and I managed to make it all the way to my destination. As I arrived I rode my Tesla at low speed onto a gentle (wheelchair) friendly curb. At this point the wheel threw me off and tumbled on the ground. It managed to turn on but could not balance anymore. At this point I am in talks with my dealer to see if there is anything that can be done. All the lights seem to turn on and the speakers still beep but the wheel makes a slight thrashing right when it is about to balance and then starts beeping. Good water resistance was among the many reasons I got the Tesla. Did I make a mistake? Also is this fixable?
