so Jed Boards sent me these giant red wheels a while back and i never got to try them because i didn’t have time to press myself a witchblade. They’re too damned huge for my Scarlet, and I’m too busy to make myself anything. Well, Ru finally called it a life and I had to retire the deck and box, so i cut myself a witchblade as an emergency measure. Now i have the fat red wheels on there and the DieBieMS in there as well.
Everything else is the same, i still have the 12S6P 25R pack, twin VESC-Xs, and the sensored 6355s.
anywho, i have to say that so far they’re fucking amazeballs.
I feel very very good on them at high speeds and in corners. They’re just fat and soft and grippy. On really rough pavement they can butter a little but its pretty predictable. They also damp a ton of vibration as you would expect from such a hunk of thane.
They’re 100mm and i’m running them on a 16/32 pulley set up on my own sensored motors. Its really fast and the startup is smooth. Launch at that height and ratio isn’t face peeling of course but it still takes off quickly and gives no fucks about hills.
Also the DieBieMS is equally amazeballs and i’m enjoying that too. I feel like it improved my brakes somehow. Charging and balancing is definitely 100% better and the LED blinky feedback for various occasions is nice. Also i love the fact that i can use a momentary button with it, i’m about to start looking for a momentary angel eye.
So now i want to work that screen into the deck somehow.
That’s all, just wanted to share my thoughts on these items.
