    Basically yea. Not sure why you use an ssr though.... It's only 12 volts. Might be easier to get a dc-dc with an enable or disable input.

    Hello Elmotomaster (Mike?),

    Just took a look at your pictures. Nice project, and nice area you live in. :-)
    Hopefully I will soon be able to show some more then unmounting as well.

    Bye,

    Thanks for the friends request. Hope I did it right.

    Hoping to someday build my own ebike. I have everything to do it, save the electric part as I was going to build my own RC211V, so I guess it will now be a RC-E.

    Hi Mike

    I was reading the latest Motorcyclist Magazine and I saw an article on a non profit track day http://tracktactics.org/. They are based in California so it could be an option for the west coast elmoto race/track day meet up.

    I was thinking it'd be nice to have a racing section to the forum. I know there is TTXGP and the other one, but then there isn't one for the FIM e-Bikes (which I really have no problem with). But a general racing forum would be nice so you could talk about any series (not big yet) world, national, or local. And talk about companies racing, ect. I'll try to come by and stir up a conversation once in a while, but my computer time is limited now-a-days.

    Thanks, and I love the new site!
