How mod is too mod?

t2
yeah i like it, but prob is it's like never in stock! gotta wait till january for it.

@OneDan i did a crap ton of messing around learning to do curb nudges with my t2 so that probably wore the crap out of it hehehe
@NotSure well shit, i dunno what to tell you. maybe plan ahead next time? :) this is probably the worst time to buy a t2 cause everyone wants them cause it's wet out there

Edit: This height is incorrect by more than twice as much as it should be! See reply further down!  A nosedive at 21 mph has the energy equivalent of falling 32 feet straight down. (Thirtytwo feet per second times 60 seconds, times 60 minutes, divided by 5280 feet in a mile equals 21.8181...mph.)
The Hoosier 5.5 treaded is likely more readily available, but it is a more ballsy tire. Nimbler for sure, but less stable at walking speeds or standing still. People either love it (like I do)  or absolutely hate it!

i come from a pint so... squirrely ass marbles are kinda my friend. I was thinking 6" so i can keep the lighter footprint. if it carves n grips better than vega i'm already sold. i just don't have the shoe size for that vega. i got half my feet off the edges! constantly adjusting... it's new tire time i think...

Actually I think I may be incorrect:

Falling 32 feet in one second you would have been accelerating the entire way down  so when you hit bottom, it is not the average of the entire fall but faster than that. So, in a nosedive at 21 mph the energy involved should be quite a bit less than that of a 32 foot fall.
Edit: omnicalculator.com/physics/freefall gives the starting height as 14.74 feet when you hit bottom at 21 mph after a straight down fall. Much different!

The Burris is a pretty good tire as well. I have one in my garage that's lightly used, if you can't find anything or want it, it's yours.

Having fallen from a few ladders and trees in my time, I find the following information useful in understanding the energy involved in a nosedive. Again, figures are from omnicalculator.com/physics/freefall.
A nosedive at 23.3 mph is like an 18.15 foot fall.
At 21 mph  14.74 foot fall.
At 20 mph  13.37 foot fall.
At 19 mph  12.07 foot fall.
At 18 mph  10.83 foot fall.
At 17 mph  9.66 foot fall.
At 16 mph  8.56 foot fall.
At 15 mph  7.52 foot fall.
At 12 mph  4.81 foot fall.

At 12 mph  4.81 foot fall.PE = KE
mass x G x height = 1/2 x mass x velocity^2
100 x 9.8 x height = 1/2 x 100 x 9.387^2
980 x height = 4,405.8 (joules i think)
height = 4.5 m. is approx 14.8 feet.Still don't wanna!

@NotSure  I am glad you agree!

tire recommendations anyone? currently 75% street, >20% trail, <5% beach (soft inclined sand
Check out this link for the Hoosier 5.5 in the D20A compound. In stock at the regional distributor. https://www.hoosiermidatlantic.com/product.cfm?InvKey=95
I’m currently running the 6.0 version in the same compound and really digging it. 
Anyone know anything about the Hypercore? Is it just a motor? Any DRM components?
On another, entirely unrelated issue, anyone have the pinout for the motor? I'm interested in the input and output characteristics specifically. It appears to be a fairly standard 3 phase dc torque motor. I'm wondering if anyone has ever played around with different voltage profiles. I suppose the VESC project crew may have tried something like that, but I have yet to find anything search query wise.

@notsure Looks like a 32 pole single phase synchronous ac inside out motor.
