  1. MSX shell breaks pretty easily There are russian fiberglass shells you can get on ebay to protect it; that's what I'm doing for my 100 volt The Nikola seems a bit more durable. Regarding neoprene, I put tons of the stuff on my MSX and the shell still broke in a bunch of places after a few drops above 30mph
  2. mten3 byfar is the best wheel for this category I've gotten it up to 51kmh on a downhill
  3. These are real world values, based on GPS verified speedometers
  4. I just wanna jump in here and straighten up the misconceptions about the Mten3 top speed This was on a downhill, but I have hit 26mph (41km/h) on a flat surface I weigh 170lb with gear on
  5. I just wanted to hop back in here and say that while this mod was unsuccessful. I was able to trigger the beeper + vibrations at the same time, but from the single bass speaker, they are uninspiring. When sharing the electrical source, the beeper is much, much quieter. (basically inaudible) and the buzzer vibrates briefly but not nearly enough to grab any attention. I have instead opted to relocate my buzzer up, near the handle, as this will likely be easier to hear while riding. I may drill a hole to amplify the sound even further. This solution is unsatisfying; however, at least I can return the buzzer for free! Pic shows the beeper location (above the battery) and the buzzer connected for testing. No soldering required!!! I merely twisted the copper wire together and used liquid electrical tape + regular electrical tape
  6. Lol okay, well he was keeping up with me and carving at 25mph on my MSX didn't seem like a real struggle. This is how you begin to learn riding a wheel. Then you shift your shoulders to steer heavier wheels. All wheels can be turned with just the feet
  7. I used Neoprene Foam, it's closer to a yoga mat. The intended purpose was for side pads, but I added some extra as protection
  8. My wheel was wrapped in lots of thick foam when I dropped it at 30mph (3rd drop above 20mph) The left side split open and the pack hit the concrete. The wheel still rode fine, but the foam did very little to protect it in that kind of tumbling crash. Still a good idea though...
  9. This is a worthwhile concern. My hope is that it would buzz at the same frequency as the beeper, thus: buzz-buzz-buzz-buzz-buzz for 80% Perhaps a 5V DC - AC converter is possible. I'd be willing to pursue it. Oh well, I'll update after trying. (the part still hasn't shipped yet)
  10. As of last weekend, I have taught 5 people to ride EUCs using my Mten3, never taking more than an hour to properly get going. The wheel is so responsive, that the only task you need to accomplish to ride it is: "maintain balance over the center." Once the student can accomplish this, they merely have to point in the direction they wish to ride and the torquey wheel will take them. The results of my EUC students speak for themselves
  11. This is a fiberglass case with a lifetime warranty for the MsuperX. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Protection-casing-Gotway-Msuper-X/401959754040?hash=item5d96ab1938:g:R5kAAOSwt35dzmRQ
  12. I've also slid the tire a few times, especially in the wet. My short-term solution has been to just use a lower tire pressure. However, in general I prefer running a pretty high pressure - around 42-44PSI for a 170lb rider. If I were especially worried about grip, I'd run mid 30's
  13. I would camp out to be first in line to purchase a 100volt Mten3
  14. Make it 84volt. The common complaint is that people are worried of faceplanting the tiny wheel. The torque provided from the higher voltage means this tiny 10 inch wheel is able to move over very large potholes. I ride this wheel at 25mph and it can still climb over bumps because of the high voltage. 84volts or bust (safety buffer for beginners even at low, low speeds)
  15. I have just purchased the Dayton Audio TT25-8 Puck Tactile Transducer Mini Bass Shaker and I will be attempted to share the power source used by the beeper to also vibrate when hitting 80% alarms. I'll write up a post if I am successful because I have already had 2 cutoffs due to not hearing the beeps. I am a young lad with proper hearing, but I wear motorcycle helmets and if I'm not hunched over, I just hear the whistle of the wind. I saw louder beeper mods, but I already hate the beeps on this thing. Hopefully this vibration mod will become standard for all fastbois like myself
