Ha! That electric scooter is nuts! But for 19 thousand dollars!.... I think they're a wee bit over-excited about their own product!!!

Mine is a roller now! I set the rear tires to stand proud of their original width by 2.75 inches each to give a little better stability.

I'm cleaning up the welds tonight and will be re-welding tomorrow on a really nice welder. My little 120v wire feed is just not sufficient for real world use. But tomorrow morning I'll be solid!

Love to watch your build progress!

I've read the details they posted on that EZRaider and found it interesting that they don't recommend driving it into water more than 6" deep. However....I've found on the web where guys have pulled apart the electric motors (electric bikes) and then coated the internals with a spray on alternator protective "stuff", then drilled 4 weep holes in the case for water to escape, and going underwater apparently is not a problem. I don't know if that's true in "real outdoor" situations or not.

Here’s a video of what this build can do. This is what I need to do what I want. No limitation!!

I know you haven't posted any updates, and that's NBD. But you got me thinking....which is not necessarily a good thing.

But...what if the front of a 3-WH scooter could have the front tire swapped out using a longer front fork\suspension kit for a kids electric scooter with an electric front hub? Thus making the scooter an AWD unit which should better handle some "tougher" terrain? Mebby the scooter fork "upgrade" would not be necessary if the existing fork were just welded\extended to handle the larger 8"-10" wheel\tire assembly?

Of course, a new controller would certainly help as well. (Alltrax)

Ha! a 3x3 scooter! That'd be a talking point! LOL.

I'm in the city so everything is paved and I'm not worried about not enough traction. I do have a solid axle so I had a small concern about too much traction making turning difficult but it seems fine.

No updates yet, been on vacation and now I'm "Working From Home". I'm actually at the beach. The family is on vaca on the first floor while I'm in the business center on the top floor working. I'll be here a week so hopefully some progress will be made the week after.

I did have a test run though! My son and his buddies (all 12 year olds) decided to tie a rope to it and pull each other on it with a bicycle. I hadn't considered that and the boys loved it but the bolt that holds the rear tires onto the solid axle were not fully tightened nor were they blue-loctite'd yet... The cart made it up and down the street probably a dozen times before the right rear decided to go wandering away...

I put the wheel back on but the bolt was MIA, so no more test runs till I get some more 5/16ths bolts. And tighten them. And blue loctite them.


----- edit -----

And one more thing, the front is independent suspension! The back had a swingarm and it's a hardtail now, but the front is independent! So cool. Anyway, I'll opt for the additional stability the 4w version has rather than switch to a 3w version. That's the biggest reason I didn't start a project like this earlier than now. I am certain the 4w version is not going to be stable enough for some of the stupidity I'll do but the 3w version won't be stable enough for any of the stupidity I'll do.....
