Fortaye Posted November 13, 2017 Share Posted November 13, 2017 Hi Everyone, first time posting, new to EUC's and new to electric rideables in general. I first started off on a huge rabbit hole into electric skateboards. That market is awash and rife with issues, but as I was getting close to selecting one, I saw a FabTrav video with the Gotway Monster in it, and I had to lift my jaw off my desk. That led me to a second rabbit hole into EUC's, which is a much smaller place by the way, and I think I've got my choice nailed. I think I will go with a Tesla. The reason being that it's the newest, and while I am not one to chase specs, the market is so new that every iteration of these vehicles seem to come with refinements to the design and technology. Getting something new really matters when only earlier in the year, you weren't getting nearly as much bang for your dollar. Here's what I need it for: Daily driver, needs to be very dependable for commuting. Rain friendly. I don't plan on riding in crazy downpours but able to handle the mild Pacific Northwest moisture and rainfall. 20-30 mile range minimum. Bonus range is just icing. I don't love that the Tesla is 40+ pounds but I can live with it because the specs are beefy compared to what you get in an electric skateboard for the same money. Here are my questions though: What do I need to know about cut-offs? Is Gotway known as unsafe and Kingsong safer safe-ish in comparison? How does Gotway's customer service fare? Do you get the support you need when things go wrong? In general, how often are you tinkering and finnicking just to get it to work? I'm not talking about making improvements, I'm talking about after-market tinkering just to preserve basic functionality. Is there a seller I should avoid? Is there a seller I should definitely use? ewheels? Thank you, and anything else you might advise for a newbie, I greatly appreciate it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
