I'm a beginner at vinyl wrapping but it does the trick to protect the plastic sides but not bad. ^_^

 

@Jimmy Chang I remember commenting on one of your videos about the motor pads and the vinyl wrap figured I'd tag you here so you can see it! :D

I was going to slime my Nikola+ tire, but was concerned about oscillations and off - balance issues. Has anyone experienced adverse effects from sliming their tire? Thx!

not unless you put in an entire bottle lol.. just do the recommended and you can't tell it's in there.. I have cut open a slimed tube before and it just evenly coats the entire surface it's thick and sticky.. not like a bucket of water randomly sloshing around in there or something haha

A fine decal was the way for me to avoid the awful Gotway stickers....  Enjoy your Nikola!! :)58963775_ScreenShot2019-11-08at6_16_54PM.thumb.png.a0b2193af63df3aac72774d22dd76821.png

Apologies, I forgot to mention, I slimed the tube in that Nikola first thing out of the box. If you haven't noticed anything yet, there's your answer ;)

I never notice any weirdness in slimed vs unslimed wheels. Things like the OneWheel come pre-slimed, I consider it just another layer of protection against flats. It's saved my ACM2 inner tube multiple times!

Hey Nick - that’s right. You told me, but I forgot. Really enjoying my Nikola+! If you have any other models for sale, let me know. I’d be happy to buy from you again.

That's awesome! I'm glad you're enjoying it :D If Gotway ever comes out with the rumored Tesla successor, I may sell my ACM2 and pick one of those up. I'm having a hard time justifying selling it though, because it's such a good wheel!

I have the impression that my performance has deteriorated because after SLIME I have to calibrate my V10F more often.
But the V10F is very stable and does not tilt into the corners, so I watch a little change and I'm not used to it. Maybe it's because there are 3 degrees Celsius and the SLIME viscosity is impaired. I have SLIME amount according to instructions. But it may also be because the air in the tire is also hypothermic because of the heat. And I do the calibration at home before I go in 22 celsius And the V10F is freshly removed from the rack so SLIME is swollen in one place. Or I'm just crazy and slime with it has nothing to do it's very subective "feeling" :)

 I've been thinking about to replace speakers but only if they stop work.

Saw this speaker https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=763399287441494&id=682726205508803 and buy here: Original gotway nikola alto-falante vermelho nikola versão atualizada bluetooth alto-falante gotway euc peças
https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/dtLwG8tw

Sweet, thanks for the tip, I kind of went with a jbl flip 4 with this case: https://www.amazon.com/Protective-Waterproof-Portable-Bluetooth-Carrying/dp/B07XCNLJMZ/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=jbl+flip+4+case&qid=1580713789&s=electronics&sr=1-8

& used these straps to hold it in place on my backpack: https://www.amazon.com/Lekou-Adjustable-Cable-Multipurpose-Management-Black/dp/B07CZGQNY3/ref=sr_1_26?keywords=velcro+straps&qid=1580713819&s=electronics&sr=1-26

it works well!

IMHO, the speaker on the wheel is lacking bass on the nikola and sounds tin like and the mids could use some improvement but none the less it's a speaker on a wheel! so a mod would be nice! @Alessandro Bandin

Just a shame the Nikola doesn’t come with a rear view mirror so you can look at the kingsong
