Hi all,
I thought I would ask this? What are people's favorite forum and why? For me I like elmoto.net because the people here are willing to push the envelope in the performance end of ebikes. Evalbum.com seems to be more mass consumer "everyone should have a 60mile range smart car in the driveway" kind of thinking?
I thought it would be cool to compose a list of ev sights like how Ted mentioned skidamo's blog the other day. -Krazy

I'm slowly learning Electric Drives, so, I go to THIS forum, ELMOTO, Endless-Sphere, and DIYElectriccar forums.

It's an all around education of NEW technologies, EBikes and Motos, and larger cars-pickups and motor-controller-battery designs for larger vehicles.

I second the 3 sites Harold mentioned above. Great stuff on all three.

I haunt alot of them, but this one is the best! I like EValbum for generating ideas.....

Had to quit the Yahoo ThunderSky forum because of Jack and all the bickering, name calling and just plane wrong information flowing coninuously. EVTV has to be the worst......

Whilst not electric, a great all round forum without focussing on specific models.

Imagine how we feel since alot of the junk being said is aimed at my boss, then they have the nerve to call and ask for us to sponsor equipment for his give away. Silly stuff.

I also like the group very much....even the ones that test me at times I appreciate the overall good will of this forum.

I care very little about cars, scooters or electric bicycles, so this is my primary EV hangout. Good bunch of folks with sharp senses of humor, and little tolerance for baloney.

One more for you Krazy_Jap

It's a bit fiddly to get subscribed, and the user interface when you do is rubbish, but it's a very active forum focussed on the tech side of EVs

For those of you who listed ElMoto... I love you guys (in a manly way), but you also need to remember that it is YOU, not me, who makes this site. I am just the monkey who barely knows how to run it.

For those of you who DIDN'T say ElMoto... clearly the first round is on me in order to change your minds. :cool:

In all seriousness, I appreciate that you all are adult enough to behave and settle differences reasonably, as well as all the policing you all do. It really helps a lot. Oh and if anyone is interested in becoming a moderator let me know. Between going back to college, work and all the movie stuff I am doing I dont get on here nearly as much as I would like every day.

Now... what do we do with Ted?
