Flex, Could your Flexboardz truck system be used for larger wheels with a wider track? That would create more ground clearance for a larger power plant and look more stable to the potential customer? An electric trike concept has been something that has interested me for several years now -- origina...

Pretty sure I locked it up when I tried to post the prefix and suffix of an embed code for you to see. That's why there is an empty box at the end of my last post in that thread. I should start another thread and see if I can freeze that one too.

Been several years since I played with Bionics. Seems like they did not align with the MBS. But my recollection is suspect at this point.

Unfortunately, the only way to be sure is to get somebody's Matrix trucks and check.

Flex, You should build an electric version of this. Maybe even a single, powered rear wheel and two front wheels for steering instead of the standard trike. I think the asthetics of old-school trikes and variants might be more appealing to the electric transportation market. http://www.familygokarts...

At 22.5 lb and 39.5" axle-to-axle wheel base, it is a bit too heavy and long for me. I would love to try one with a shorter wheel base. Seems like he could go with a much lighter composite deck since he has an aluminum chassis. Shave a few pounds eliminating the maple ply deck -- of course the maple...

Pretty sure torsion bionics do not have a skate hole mounting pattern. If so you, will need to re-drill for the MBS matrix skate hole mounting pattern and tension screws. Drill so the matrix axles will be level with the lowest points of the deck, relative to the ground. Otherwise you will have to mo...
