    Tesla vs. MSuper V3s+ with Tesla Motor

    Having already owned a Tesla 1020 Wh, I recently purchased an MSuper V3s+ 1600 Wh with the Tesla Motor because I wanted the 1600 Wh battery for longer rides and the 18-inch diameter wheel for trail riding. I bought the Tesla from Jason McNeil at EWheels.com (https://www.ewheels.com/product/new-gotway-tesla-16-1020wh-1900w-motor/), who always has AWESOME customer service and support. I bought the MSuper V3S+ with Tesla Engine from Chen at AliExpress.com (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Latest-upgrade-Gotway-Msuper3S-1600WH-84V-Life-150KM-the-maximum-speed-of-55KM-H-the-fastest/32832913078.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.W2jVF1) only because Jason didn’t have that particular model in stock at the time. My experience with Chen was very good and I received my wheel on the East Coast of the US, about 11 days after ordering it online. So, that was also a good buying experience. I bought my wheel from Chen for $1,781 … the price on the website now is $2,380 … so wait for the price to go down, or try to convince Jason to carry it at EWheels. Truth in advertising, I have not cracked open the case of my MSuper V3s+ to see if the motor is the Tesla motor, but with the ride setting set to “sport” mode on the MSuper V3s+ the pedals are incredibly stiff and it feels like the Tesla with a lot of raw power and responsiveness. After putting about 300 miles on my Tesla and about 100 miles on the MSuper V3s+, I figured I’d write a review and let folks know my thoughts. BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT Both wheels are awesome! If I could only have ONE wheel I’d take the 1600 Wh MSuper V3S+ with Tesla Motor, but that’s primarily for the extended range and versatility of being able to take the wheel on street and trails without issue. RIDE CHARACTERISTICS Both wheels ride and handle very differently and the closest analogy I can think of is the difference between my road bike and my mountain bike. The Tesla is definitely a road bike. It handles incredibly well on the streets, with powerful and smooth acceleration and plenty of top end range to power out of situations quickly. The taller case sits higher on my calf, just below my knees and allows me to grip the wheel more securely and feels more stable when accelerating or braking quickly, or when turning at high speeds. The Tesla feels more fluid and silky smooth on the street and is my favorite wheel by far on the road, hands down, no contest. The MSuper V3s+, in my opinion, is like my mountain bike. It handles fine on the street. You can travel at a good speed and it has good acceleration, and like the Tesla has plenty of top end range left to power out of situations. But, I must say that 25 mph on the MSuper V3s+ feels like more work and less stable than 25 mph on the Tesla, where speed is deceptive and you often don’t realize you’re traveling as fast as you actually are. The case on the MSuper V3s+ is not as tall as the Tesla, so I find that I accelerate a little bit slower because of my inability to control the wheel at a higher angle, and I find that turning at high speeds is significantly more difficult. Of note, the pedal dip on the MSuper V3s+ during turns is significantly more pronounced than the Tesla, which is probably a function of the different control boards between the two models. The pedal dip on the MSuper V3s+ is annoying and I much prefer the way the Tesla handles in that regard. Whereas with the Tesla I can grip the wheel just below the knees and lean my whole body into the turn like you see motorcycle riders do on the track, I can’t do that with the MSuper V3s+ (at least not yet) and that’s with over 100 miles on the wheel. I can still turn at a decent speed, but the handling characteristics of the MSuper V3s+ are much different than the Tesla. I’ve also found that I much prefer riding the MSuper V3s+ with the ride setting set to “medium” mode vice “sport” mode, whereas my Tesla stays in “sport” mode. ON THE TRAILS On the East Coast where I live we have a lot of wooded single-track trails. Lots of tree roots and ruts and only small hill climbs with 30 – 45-degree angles for no more than 50 – 150 ft elevations. Rides are through the woods with no real rocks or significant hills of which to speak. In both cases, both the Tesla and MSuper V3S+ can handle the trails, but the design of the MSuper V3s+ is so much better on the trails, that I’m never taking my Tesla through the woods again. The larger diameter wheel of the MSuper V3s+ smooths out bumps and tree roots and the fact that the front and back of the wheel are exposed and not hidden behind a case or plastic mud guard means the wheel can really attack uphill and downhill terrain with ease. Also, the lower case of the MSuper V3s+ makes it significantly nimbler in closed quarters, despite the larger 18-inch wheel diameter. I can turn the MSuper V3s+ on a dime at low speeds, but have more difficulty with the Tesla because of the higher case on the Tesla. As far as performance, with the Tesla engine in the MSuper V3S+, I can fly up hills while accelerating and keep up with mountain bikers on the trails with no issue. I had more fun hitting the trails on the MSuper V3s+ than I do with my mountain bike! FINAL THOUGHTS While both wheels are amazing, the overall versatility of the 1600 Wh MSuper V3s+ with the Telsa motor makes it the clear winner if you’re only going to have one wheel. But, if you’re the type of person who has a mountain bike and a rode bike because you don’t want to compromise on either experience, then I highly recommend getting the Tesla as your “road wheel” and the MSuper V3s+ as your “mountain wheel” and let them excel within their respective terrains. You will not be disappointed!

    EUCs in Japan

    Hi there, I read various questions on how EUCs are spreading in Japan. So I decided to share some pictures and videos from our group here in the Kansai area. Please 😊 enjoy! https://photos.app.goo.gl/otwk8fFTsSQbnyM43

    MSuper V3s+ 3D Printed Mud Guard

    If anyone needs a 3D Printed Mud Guard for a Gotway MSuper V3S+ I can confirm that Dwayne at 3D HUBS can print you one that fits perfectly. I've ordered several from Dwayne and they all fit and work perfectly! Absolutely no mud or splatter whatsoever after installation of these mud guards. You'll notice that I added some "U" shaped clips on the bottom to prevent the mud guard from sliding down while riding over bumps, but they are not necessary ... just something I did for my own peace of mind. Here are the links to Dwayne's 3D HUBS website (both of them) https://www.3dhubs.com/users/dmyers7 https://www.3dhubs.com/service/32091 Also attached is the *.stl file originally produced by Tillman that will allow Dwayne to print the part. Check out the pics! Enjoy! 1x-GW18V3_Mudguard_Klingon-Edition_original-54.6x92.4x180.6mm.stl

    MSuper V3s+ w/Tesla Motor - Internal Pics

    Curiosity got the best of me and I decided to crack open the case on my MSuper V3s+ with Tesla Motor just to see the quality of craftsmanship. Overall, I was pleased. Nothing loose. Cables were all snug and nicely wrapped. Control board was secured nicely and even the tiny little fan on the control board was snug and not loose. Good job Gotway! I didn't dissemble the entire wheel to look at the motor itself, and I'm not sure the motor code would give me any specifics on whether or not it really is the Tesla motor, so take that for what it's worth. Enjoy!

    Tesla vs. my other unicycles

    So today after "may be" having solved my charging problems I spend my first 15 kms on my brand new Tesla. It was a fine but quite windy day, I had pumped up my tires to 43 psi for this first ride and I had recalibrated my Tesla, so the pedals are about 2 or 3 degrees tilted back, which I prefer with all my unicycles, since it gives me a feeling of more security and confidence when speeding up and cruising with higher speeds. It's just a slight adjustment however, nothing dramatic. I own and ride a Ninebot E+ (on which I learned), a KS16, an ACM (820Wh), and the MSuper V3s+ (which I ride most of the time). Now here is my first impression of my new Tesla: First of all: It looks really beautiful and shiny for a Gotway, I love the looks, but there is still room for improvement. The front with all the switches and charging ports looks ugly and they could have made it nicer with a simple bonnet like cover. The rear and side view however is rather beautiful. 2. It's very agile and responsive and it rides much more stable than my ACM. Is it as stable as the MSuper V3s+? So far I think not! And this is because today was a very windy day. I once got blown off my Ninebot E+ on a day like this in the mountains, and it was not pleasant! It seemed as if one of our mountain gods and spirits was making fun of me, blowing me off my path and I though I heard them all laughing when I landed in the ditch next to a rice field. So even now my MSuper keeps impressing me, how stable it behaves even in the strongest winds. If you consider the wind, the Tesla is not as stable as the MSuper I thought after this short 14 km trip in high winds. So the Tesla is very, very stable and solid, but the MSuper is rock solid. 3. The Tesla has lots of power and rides very smooth. 4. The battery was down to 80% (6 of 8 indicator lights) after my first 14 km. That was a bit disappointing, since I am used to riding my MSuper the whole week without charging and I never ever got down to 60% at the end of the week. I once rode the distance from Hikone to Nagahama and back, which is about 62 km and I still had 50% battery left. But for everyday cruising and commuting the Tesla should still have sufficient range. You just have to charge it every day. So no big deal. 5. Now when I got home and wanted to charge it, I had the same problem that I thought I had solved: The Tesla did not charge! I disconnected all cables again, reconnected them - green light! it did not charge. I disconnected all cables a second time, tested the batteries individually - green light! Both batteries did not charge, as they did, when I remedied this problem before. I reconnected everything again, tried to charge again - green light! The Tesla didn't want to charge. I switched the Tesla on to check the battery level (6 indicators). Just out of curiosity, I connected the charger with the Tesla switched on - RED light! It started to charge. I switched it off - Still RED light! It continued to charge and it is charging now. Since I have no idea of electronics, this behavior seems kind of magical to me and I have no idea, why it charges and why it didn't charge before. I will keep an eye on it. May be one of you has a reasonable explanation. Summary: 1. The Tesla is definitely superior to the ACM, that I own. 2. For off-road riding, long distance cruises and stability on windy days, the MSuper V3s+ plus is second to none of the wheels I own and (for now) it is in my opinion superior to the Tesla. 3. However, if I could have only one wheel, I probably whould choose the TESLA. It is stable, powerful, agile, great for performing tricks, looks beautiful and offers sufficient range for commuting. 4. But since I can have both, I will use the MSuper for touring and off-road mountain trips. I have been in the deepest woods with it where I am almost sure the Tesla could not follow ... BUT I will use the Tesla on rainy days and in urban surroundings and especially at night to show off with its beauty. It doesn't challenge my friends with their flashy fascinating V8s, but it's faster, lol! That's it for a first impression of the TESLA after a 14 km ride. (To be continued)

    Where to buy MSuper V3S+

    Can anyone tell me where to buy an MSuper V3S+ domestically? (I’m in the U.S.) Any site I’m finding says sold out. Ian (Speedy Feet) seems to have stock but I was hoping not to order overseas. From what I found in searching he is the only one with stock. Is this fallout from the oscillation/cutout problem that was plaguing Gotway and which injured me earlier this summer? Any suggested U.S. dealers that you know of would be helpful. Thanks!

    Tighten MSuper V3S+ axle nuts

    I seem to be late to the game as this topic has been discussed much already, but I am not finding the key piece of info I need as I read through all the threads. Are we limited to a pass through socket when tightening the axle nut on the wiring harness side? I also see mention of oxygen sensor sockets, but I can't find evidence that these come in the 21mm size I need for the MSuper axle nuts. I am hoping not to have to take apart any wiring connections when tightening my axle nuts, but maybe this is my only option? Is there a definitive socket with a slot cut in it out there which I can buy? Anyone? If so and if you have a link to it that would be much appreciated.
  8. I keep hearing people talk about how some of these wheels will regenerate the battery when the unit is braking or going downhill. Does the GotWay MSuper V3s+ do this?
  9. I'm a little confused about where to get and how to get the app for the MSuper V3s+. Is that given in the instructions, or is there a secret fraternity I need to join or some sort of secret handshake or something? Thanks for being patient with me on what I suspect is a ridiculous question.

    Greetings!

    I'm making my first post here, but I have been reading this forum for 2 or 3 months now. I discovered electric unicycles after I discovered (and purchased) a hoverboard. I had a 10 inch one, good high end, and I used it to commute around my city, as well as for stress relief and fun. It had a 12 mile range, and a top comfortable cruising speed of 8 to 9 mph once I got good with it. One time, I tried to push it to the max while using GPS to clock my speed, and I managed 12 mph before I lost control and had to step off, which resulted in me running the fastest I have ever run to avoid face planting. I did not do that again. Not a month later, it snapped in half while I was trying to learn to ride it off curbs. When I started looking to replace it, I discovered EUCs. They make more sense in a lot of ways, so I started started doing research. This led me to want to purchase one, but for a while, I had to spend my money in other directions (new computer, new car, house repairs) first and then save up. When I found myself with enough money I purchased a GotWay MSuper V3s+. The three I was choosing from were the KS18s, MSuper V3s+ and Monster. Monster seemed a bit much... and Jason @ eWheels advised me that I "probably wanted the MSuper" when I asked which he would recommend. Fortunately the firmware has been fixed during the various delays since I was able to pay him (bank spent a week thinking about my CC purchase before releasing the funds, then Jason apparently had inventory delays). I just got a notice that the shipping label has been created, so I figured... it's time to sign up and say hello. Hello! I know buying an MSuper V3s+ may not have been something that many of you would probably have advised for someone who has never ridden an EUC before, but the way I tend to approach things is... research what fits your needs and will last and genuinely make you happy. Then buy it... then meet whatever challenge learning how to use it presents, and master it. I have come to the conclusion through experience in my life that I can do anything, as long as I set my mind to it and persevere. This will be an enjoyable challenge, just as was learning to ride the hoverboard. The rewards will be long term, since EUCs have a future and are going to doubtless grow in popularity and commonality. Knowing me, I will also eventually have to have a KS18s (or better) and a Monster (or better). As far as I know, I will probably be the only person in my city with one of these devices for quite some time. Some day (hopefully soon) I will be good enough to join some of the closer of you for group rides. And to all of you who have been so kind and generous with your time and wisdom to post videos, I have watched them, and appreciated and enjoyed them. Thank you for the information, entertainment and the pleasure of coming to know you a little better. Perhaps my chance to post videos will come some day. So any advice for going from 0 to MsuperV3s+? By the way, here's an interesting thing... shipping label created on the 10th, in Cali. Supposed to arrive by FedEx Ground on the 11th in Florida. Ummm.... does this mean they have trucks doing 126 mph for 23.97 hours a day? Or is this being shipped by air? Hmmmmm. Okay, I'll stop talking now.
