  • I haven't been posting, but I've been playing with things.
    I modified & lengthened the original wiring of the KDX scooter, marrying the original JST multi-plugs to the big sloppy Dupont connectors that the Chinese seem stuck on in such a way that I can swap controllers easily. I mounted a...

    replied to ZX-1 Power Add-on owners thread
    I applaud you, sir!
    Defenitely on the right track.
    How about a "wrap around" battery pack with one BMS?
    Bring the wiring out of the first pack and give it enough length to "saddle" the ZX1 frame.
    Then drive the damn thing about 20 miles,........er..33k. Maybe...

    Oddity: yeah, my experience is pretty congruent with yours. When I was rehabbing at Kessler in 95, they had a weekly spinal support group. I'd spent a lot of time in therapy as well as years of sharing at AA meetings. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was dismayed when a bunch of newly paralyzed...

    replied to Cataract or something else?
    in Care
    I agree with his. Few years ago I had a similar thing, one eye. Went through several tests and ophthalmologist found what looks like a resolved blood clot on my retina. It resolved in minutes (probably less than, but it seemed forever when i basically went blind in one eye in a pet store). He said that...

    replied to New antibiotic that won’t become resistant!?!
    in Care
    When I sanitize my bag (every 4 days/showertime), I put a cup of water and 40cc bleach into the bag through the tubing. I open the drain and squeeze the bag resting on my thigh, until the drain tube is almost overflowing, then connect the inlet tube to the drain tube. This gets almost all the air out...

  • AFAIK all VW/Audi with electric power steering have a certain amount of adjustability using the factory tool or aftermarket like VAG/Com.
    (I've been driving GTIs with electric PS 14 years and had the tool at my shop but never played with it)
    I would hunch that all or nearly all vehicle w/electric...

    replied to TRA frame diameter?
    You're probably right! My caliper proves that my tube is 1 3/16" so maybe the chair is not a TRA. I thought the "A" denoted aluminum.
    Now how about some more help: If my chair is ~2019 and fat aluminum mono-tube design, what model is it? Seriously!

    AND, what model is...

    replied to Tilite Zra ground clearance
    I think it has a wedge type deal similar to the bicycle I had when a kid.
    The allen head bolt that resides in the ovoid shoulder at the interface of foot-loop and chair frame, goes down diagonally into the wedge.
    Just loosening the allen doesn't really relax it's grip. Back the bolt off...

    replied to SUVs
    My reasons are petty, I suppose.
    Unless you're going off-road why have an XC? (and if you do, don't go too deep into off road or you'll quickly discover how limited you are)
    And the all-road versions of the standard series has the same 4wd system.
    They're "hip" I'm a practical...

    I am a strong advocate of Volvo 4wd wagons, and not the ersatz Volvo SUVs, the WAGON that has normal ride height and is a beautiful vehicle.
    My wife transitioned from a 240K 01 V70 T5 that served us admirably for 14 years, to a 2019 V90 AWD by way of a disastrous romance with a MB 350R Bluetek...

  • And if you have a van I have a cool lift for you. I made this for a Mercedes or 350 but then we got a Volvo wagon and it won’t work because the tail of Volvo is not as vertical as the Mercedes...

  • It works fine in grass as long as it's not wet, muddy, or steep, all of which my trip to the generator involves.
    That's why I put knobbies on mine. They're ok on hard surfaces-no vibration or noiseyness but if you go mud-bogging, you'll need to hose them down before coming in the house!...

    replied to ZX-1 Arms
    they are tubular with a "U" shaped pair of cutouts on the bottom. Lift one up about a half inch and it becomes free to swing around. I do this all the time when I need to reach for something and the arm limits my reaching. The left one, with nothing on it can be lifted in and out whenever...

  • If I can get "Franken scooterchair" built and it works in my backyard, I will sell my ZX-1 (with mud and regular tires +a scan-tool/programmer tool) for less than $2000 in the spring, when I can confirm Franken scooter will work in the dirt.
    This is "Scooterchair" for the street....

    Sound pretty normal! I had some scares after getting the divertment, but they were all paper tigers and I soon settled down to fecal bliss!
    (Happy as a pig in shit)
    It gets better, just give time time.
    Things will work out (intended )
