Mk. 4.5 spun up its motor for the first time in months with only minor modifications to the wiring harness. Electric vehicles are awesome.

Off-season update

Hello everyone, an update has been a long time coming. Sadly Mk.4's battery died over the winter. This was a somewhat planned event though, as the RC lipo cells we were using live hard and fast, and we were able to get more then three years of lifespan out of them, from Mk.2 thru Mk.4.

For some good news, A good friend of the team has donated battery packs to us, and we have been hard at work designing a new frame around these new batteries. We are calling this frame Mk 4.5, as it re-uses alot of parts from Mk.4. The swingarm, motor, fork, wheelset and controller are moving over, and a new frame and Britten V1000 inspired linkage rear shock are in progress right now.

Here are some images of the progress to date.
