    Well, Sam you've spoken now/ Like most of us, we were first a llttle leary of oversteppin' the boundries. But, there are no boundries here, that's what make the site so great.

      There has been discussion about various battery technologies in this thread, I am just wondering what sort of range the ZX1 has with its present setup?


      Cheers

        I should have said wheelie up. I have a ZX1 and I drive with it but under acceleration I wheelie up until my tilite flip up anti tippers hit and stop it. Still it bothers me. I came up with this bracket. I may still put a hook on the end of it. I cannot use a ez lock because with the truck because I back in then pull forward up to the steering wheel.
        Its the first pic.

          Any news on Spinergy's development? This definitely looks like something I would use right away .. but only if my insurance would cover $ome of it! How does it work in snow/rain/freezing rain?? .. especially at the joystick because I'm told that's the first thing to go on powerchairs.

              I hope they haven't changed their minds on this.

                  Did you contact Pat at Beachmobility.com? He may still be building them or at least have Spinergy's timeframe.

                  It's as awesome as it looks. I attach it along with my Frewheel and I can go anywhere on my property. I may change out the smooth tires for knobbies for added traction in the wet and snowy weather.

                    I sent him a message on his web site. I can only push myself one block before I get to tired. I could get in trouble with this!!

                      Asked Ryan. Here's the response: Thank you for your email.

                      We are in the middle of the required RESNA tests. We have a unit being tested at an independent lab, and all tests are going well so far.

                      We hope to be done within a few weeks.



                      Then, we determine if some sample units can be sold prior to receiving FDA certification. That is what we’re working on now.



                      Don’t hesitate to send another email around the middle of January for another update.



                      Thank you!

                          Thank you for that shakey!

                          I'd definitely like to have one before next winter .. depending on whether it can handle wet/cold weather.

                            Thanks for the update, shakey! Some time ago I emailed Ryan about my interest. I just hope I live long enough to get one. I'm still independent after a major setback two years ago, but get so fatigued wheeling outdoors - such as from a parking lot to a store or restaurant. It's difficult to transfer to my power chair for such outings, so I often leave it home. The power add-on would be perfect for me. I'll be 70 tomorrow and hope I can get one soon!
                            Good wishes for the new year 2012 to all of you on CareCure!

                              Has anyone received an update on the progress of the ZX1? It's been quiet.
