    I’m fine with either day as well, that morning timing is good too in order to leave the rest of the day open.

    Sounds like fun! I’d be interested in going, so let me know if plans end up being confirmed. The only thing that would keep me from attending would be surprise midterms..

    The Photo Thread

    Tire pressure seems to affect the low speed handling of the Z10 a LOT. The first time I rode the Z10, it was when Marty let a few of us try the pre-production unit before a group ride. It was very hard to turn then, and it felt like I really had to force the wheel to turn. It felt off, like it was forcing you to stay upright. The next time I rode it, @Marty Backe had adjusted the pressure (I can’t remember what he did, maybe he can help me out here) but it was MUCH easier to turn, especially at low speeds. It felt like a different wheel, and it was a lot more fun to ride IMO. So, varying reports may come from people using different tire pressures, which will result in a pretty different ride. That’s my theory, at least.

    New Wheel Checklist - ACM Edition

    I’ve seen people vinyl wrap their wheels, I’m not sure how hard that would be on an ACM but it is a thing. (And I do agree, Gotway red is awesome! Ewheels only offers blue, though the color is starting to grow on me). My screws stripped out during a fall while offroading, and it was only the bottom two screws on the top plastic part. The wheel got stuck in a hole that was covered by debris and I lost control, the wheel landed partially on the handle. Though it didn’t come off, so I guess that shows you should still be ok even if you go through a minor crash. Normal sliding-up-and-down use won’t cause any issues at all. Also, I’m not sure if anyone else has this issue, but over time my handle got harder and harder to use, I think dust and dirt were accumulating inside. To fix it I put WD40 in the different sections of the handle columns and worked the handle up and down a lot (with paper towels underneath the handle to catch any dripping WD40) and it was like new again.

    New Wheel Checklist - ACM Edition

    That’s awesome! I’m glad you were able to upgrade so quickly, and to such a great wheel. You won’t be disappointed! Although I’m sure you already knew that, after having tried mine I never knew that! My handle is a bit too high so I was only able to use 3 screw holes (one of the outer ones was too far from the shell to be useful). If I ever need to open my wheel, I may remount the handle with new holes, as two of my top screws have already stripped out.

    I’ve also got a 14D (and ACM2) and I’ll be moving to SD in a month or so, though I’m currently only about an hour away. Hopefully I’ll be able to meet up with other riders when I get there! I’d go to rides in SD if any end up happening.

    Gotway Tesla Dented Rim

    I was in your situation, and followed the advice from the other thread (vice grip to bend the dent back into place) and used a pry tool to bend it further after the rough bending was done (this is probably a bad idea). I got my dent mostly back into being round, but my dumb perfectionist self decided to try bending it a bit further with a pry tool and cracked the rim... However it ended up being perfectly round after that (how ironic). I used metal JB weld to fix the crack and I haven’t had any more issues. I did get a replacement motor though, just in case something bad does end up happening to my ‘bandage-fixed’ motor in the future. Where did you buy your wheel from? I ordered mine from eWheels and I sent an email to Jason about my situation, he was able to help me out and sell me a replacement motor for a discount (since I had barely had my wheel for two weeks before the rim bending). Even without the discount I’m pretty sure the price of the motor would be under $400. Apparently it’s possible to replace just the rim, but I hear it’s difficult. I would have to look into it more to find out, but it was talked about on the forum (possibly in that thread).

    Gotway MSuper X arrived

    Here is the gotway app for android (link from Marty) and here is how to calibrate. It may think it’s fallen over due to horrible calibration, so let’s hope that’s the issue.

    WheelLog Android App

    When the ewheels fast charger stops charging my ACM2 1600 with the cutoff dial at 90%, it says 80.4 V but wheellog says 83% and 79ish V. This is also on the newest version.

    Do you do this every year? I won’t be able to make it this year but I plan to be there next year.

    Need some help with WheelLog

    I was confused about this too. This thread is where you should download the most up-to-date versions of wheellog, I believe the current version is 2.0.13.

    WheelLog Android App

    Ah, I’ve never checked the wheel settings menu since I’ve never had a need to. I’ll change the setting later today when I go on a ride. It really doesn’t matter too much. My reasons for making that comment are 1) To make sure that on the slight off chance that it’s a real issue instead of me just being dumb (this is another case of the latter), it’s brought to the dev’s attention 2) I’m a bit of a perfectionist and get annoyed when something’s just a bit off I’m sure there’s other reasons that some may have, but I’m not sure what they are as those two are my only reasons.

    WheelLog Android App

    I’m not sure if it’s only me having this issue, but version 2.0.13 shows my ACM2 as a 67v wheel as opposed to an 84v wheel. Everything else works, like percentage, wattage, amp draw, etc. I noticed the app shows voltage correctly on other new 84v Gotway wheels like the MSX, so I’m wondering if this is an issue for other ACM2 users, or just me.
