I would be delighted to enter this as long as it doesn't clash with the TTXGP races. I think the competitive element should be a measurement of the amount of power used for recharging, divided by the number of people the vehicle is carrying during the run (in the case of a goods-carrying vehicle, 70...

Personally I'm thinking rather than double your money THREE times would be better :wink: So we hook a regular DC powersuppy up to the regular mains and feed it in to the solar panel DC wiring, simples :wink: OK so you'd be paying around 10p-13p per regular kwh unit the PSU would use but then you'd ...

The race will be one lap of the TT circuit, about 38 miles. Probably the FIM rules about aerodynamics will apply (although this is not yet cer...

Another reason why most quad bikes have high rolling resistance and horrible steering on the road is that they have no differential but a solid rear axle. On a loose or slippery surface this is not a problem (and you still have traction when taking a corner on two wheels) but on the road the wheels ...

The "unbiased" BBC through its programme "Top Gear" is also campaigning to try to get the Reva/G-Wiz banned. I'm actually rather annoyed that the BBC of late seem to have become rather spin-oriented in the way they broadcast. I used to work for them for a while back in the 90s an...

In some ways it's a very sensible rule. Quite a lot of people will grab full throttle in a panic, but they will stop pedalling. It's insane. There is simply no safety case to be made for banning e-bikes. They don't even go as fast as pedal bikes. You don't have to apply any force to the pedals, jus...
Hi Malcolm, Thanks for your reply. I'll take a look at the DVLA site but if it is as informative as it was when I was looking to import an electric Clio I will be none the wiser! Many thanks for your reply. Wattson The Peugeot Scootelec is legally a moped in the UK. It has to be registered, insured...
