This is correct? ;)

are there any issues with charging this? it would really help if you can post the actual picture of what you did. it will help me alot.
You are shorting out the battery pack. Don't do that! Use a separate charger to charge the 3S pack!
Directly connect the 3s battery in series with the 10s. Use the BMS on the 3s only for charging.

“Unfortunately the supply of Zero's seems to have dried up. I very rarely see a Zero any more. I've seen people (scrappers?) walking past Ninebots and Xiaomi's and only grabbing Zero's so there must be more value in them.”

There are still even right now THOUSANDS of bird zeros in san diego. More than a ridiculous number of them flood the streets in fact

I currently have an M365 scooter with a stock wheel up front and a zero wheel custom installed in the back. The configuration is awesome, it chirps when you hit the throttle and you can pop wheelies no problem:) The scooter accelerates super fast and has torque to go uphill without slowing down at all but the damn thing still only gets up to around 20 mph and the power kind of fades in and out. I am currently running 2 controllers both flashed with the cfw 1000w firmware. So, i have 2 questions...first does anyone know how to increase the top speed? I know there is provisions for that in the custom firmware generator but they still do not let the motors wind up to their full potential. Back emf issue? i dont think it is. Mecanical limitation of the motor? No way, its got more in it. Electronic limitation of the controller? Possible but again i think its capable. I think the issue is in the firmware but cannot be sure. Any insight is appreciated.
Also, might over volting it do the trick? I see a provision in the firmware generator and the controller has a 60v capacitor so i know it can take 52-56 volts without blowing up. Again any info is appreciated.
Yes, i have a “48” volt (actually charges to as high as 59v ). In my white m365 and im running a $25 500w 48v controller. That i think is pushing 30AMPS? anywayz its exactly what the motor wants
[/img] Yeah I did this the 1st few times but got it wrong as I had a 36 volt battery that was going dead in my scooter so then I grabbed another battery pack but I cut the negative & did it as u said well it drained the 12 volt 3 times to millivolts so then I reverse the process when I had only 1 battery & then it drained the 12 volts first inside the scooter can u tell me what happened here i have an idea but not 2 expert in this subject as I only been on escooters for 4 years??? :?:

Thanks guys. Ill crack it open over the weekend maybe and photograph the insides to show more detail about how I did it. I need to upgrade a few things anyways and fix a couple of questionable wire splices. Thing also rattles a little bit over bumps and it annoys the sh*t out of me. Still need to mount the horn too. And after that Ill try to post a video of the thing in action. Just to silence those who might dare question my sincerity. Cuz your boy dont f**k around!

And thanks for the kind words homies. I really appreciate the acknowledgement and compliments. Ive got an unfair advantage over most people though...Ive been doing custom cars for years. Aint my first rodeo, ya know? And I aint doing nothing that yall cant do. Aint nothing to it but to do it. And if you f**k it up, do it again till ya get it right.

When I joined this forum I came to learn, of course, (and I have learned A LOT from the members here. Thank you)
but I also came to share what I know and give back. I wasnt born knowing...well....really much of anything at all. None of us were. We have to learn form others and train our minds to eventually be able to teach OURSELVES through curiosity and trial & error. And most people just need a little direction and confidence boost to get started. I remember when I saw my first lowrider car cruising down the boulevard. I was beyond inspired and so curious about how it worked. It was the coolest thing I had ever seen. I needed to know how to make one of my own. Thank you Dave and Gilbert for showing me the ropes and believing in me. sh*t, that was 17 years and 10 builds ago. Time flies.

Because were dealing with scooters, I figured there might be some younger dudes on here or guys that dont get their hands dirty too often. And I want to inspire these people in particular because I feel like this country (especially Los Angeles) is getting too soft and dudes aint building sh*t and fixing sh*t like they used to. There is a national shortage of automotive technicians, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, welders..etc...Im not hating on white collar guys or designers or bankers or salesmen or nothin like that, but if guys dont get the f**k out there and build sh*t, there aint gonna be nothing to sell or design or finance. More dudes need to learn how sh*t f**kin works and be able to fix it and build it and take pride in what they do. Our f**king country is getting soft, man. A lot of dudes cant even mount a spare tire or install a light switch. Thats insane to me. I thought maybe joining a f**king scooter forum would give me an avenue to inspire some youngsters or get some website designer off the computer and into the garage for a few. People come here to try to have a cheap scooter. I want them to leave having a dope, custom, super fast scooter they built themselves. Thats why I take the time to post. It aint about ego, its about the appreciation of dirty hands and the confidence to take on any job in front of you.
Anyways blah blah blah thats my 2 cents. sh*t sounds like a Home Depot commercial or some Donald Trump inaugural speech. But, f**k man, I mean it. Im just trying to say I tried, ya know? SO....Heres something even better than my ranting and unsolicited opinions about the American workforce....a sneak peek at my latest scooter build! Its still in its infant stages but you better believe its gonna be BADASS when Im through with it. And yes its an m365 deck and yes thats an air tank sitting next to it, and yes those are 2 1000 watt controllers underneath it. Thats all I have to say about it for now. Ill post in the appropriate category once i make some progress.
Homies!!!! Lets build some sh*t!!! Goodnight.

Hi LA,

Have you cracked open to take some pictures yet :D

I'm just curious on how you lay it out.
Well stated sir!
