So I had a few hours spare last night and decided to do something with the Arduino Nano that's been sat in a box for a while. So together with a bunch of LEDs and the 3D printer here is a mini Flux Capacitor for the C5: Now I just have to figure out how to get a C5 up to 88mph

Hi Dan, I see that you have two problems. 1. The 88mph shouldn't be too much of a problem, the answer is here. http://www.c5owners.com/sinclair-c5-forum/topic/555/jet-c5#post4451http:// 2. I think this one is a major problem, Where in the hell are you going to obtain a stainless steel body for the C5. Let me know and I'll join you back in the future.

The front light was hacked a bit to make it all fit

You hacked the light

[quote=dave;4469]You hacked the light [/quote] That's right. When you take out the front light housing it comes back quite far. I'll post a picture when I get chance

Oh common Dan, don't be so modest. You can put your finger to anything. Seeing that the flux capacitor only works in conjunction with a stainless steel body, I think I've found a solution to this problem, a stainless steel 3D printer. Who wrote
who can do the best Mod
Get this thing working and you'll not only be voted to have produced the best mod of the winter, but also the best mod of the century.[woot] [woot] Then you'll really be [h]back[/h] in business

I think the flux could be made to work on a normal c5 I hope lol

Hi 51, it'll work, but not properly, it's gotta be stainless body. There again it will only cut in at 88mph. I really did this forum, I've just noticed that my submittal is posted six minutes before I write it.

If dave's e-bike is not out of stainless steel you'll leave him behind.

Karl posted:

Dave, you are cheating. Your e-bike IS made out of SS, it's fitted with with a flux magnet, AND you reached 88mph. Otherwise how did you manage to get back into the future? I have the evidence that you've been there.:-" :-" You have posted a reply to 51's post before he posted it.[woot] [woot] Here's the evidence.[omg] [albumimg]192[/albumimg] So Dave you posted reply #19 four minutes before #18 from 51. Pray tell me how did you manage this without going 'Back to the Future'.[woot] [woot] Dan, Dave's solved the problem but he's keeping it secret.
