    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    Ohh a new 2021 model! It does look more spacious than the 2019-2020 models and it seems they removed some features (the programming socket and lights extension) The connector looks to be the same as before but just squared (4 pin), what i do hope is that it maintains the same voltage readings as...

    It's my own private network with multiple VM's and the NAS (with backup). Pm me about the 3D project

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    I design/Modify in Tinkercad and then use Cura to print it on my ender 3 (controlled by raspberry pi) Here is a pic of it, and below the servers.

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    Use the frame :) I fed the cable on the same path as the handlebar controller, there is enough room to squeeze the cable. Then all you would need is to dodge the wires internally (that was the most difficult) and bring it to the controller. Once there you can use the same hole where the battery...

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    Here is mine (3d printed box): EDIT: I attached a zip with the STL in case someone wants it. I modified it to have a small gap to install a rubber ring, with this i tested and concluded that the water and dirt does not get in. All you would have to do is make a hole at the bottom for your...

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    That is indeed bad news. Would the comms be a battery level check or something more?

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    A note I'm adding here for the future of de-restricting the bike. I calculated that the carrera battery at 36V 8ah will last about 15 miles for the average rider on throttle all the time and today i can conclude that its correct. If we manage to de-restrict the bike we need to upgrade the bike...

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    Well went to work and back with the bike and most of the journey was on throttle. (10 miles in total) I can say it works beautifully, the battery is suffering now since after 5 miles it dropped one bar (4 bars in total) so maybe a battery upgrade from 8Ah to something higher is probably in...

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    Side note, if its dark outside and you have your handlebars with a lot of stuff (me...) so its hard to see the gears, you can use the 3.3v and spare GND from the Arduino nano and attach a switch with a white LED pointing to the gears indicator.

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    Fully agreed Nealh, his expertise in the code as his time and dedication provided a big boost into the project. EDIT: This code, if modified, can also be used for other bikes that use the same system.

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    That is already on my plans as when i disassembled the bike entirely to clean it i was trying to see where the speed sensor was and it was either inside the main connector from the controller to the bike (that sits outside the frame, next to the back wheel) or the motor. This is definitely...

    Tomorrow i will take the bike for its proper first test, riding it to work and back so a total journey of 10 miles

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    Just took the bike for a spin using code 8.2 It works as expected! Pedaling works great and throttle as well, just needs fine tuning per the user's legs. The main mission is complete. Thank you very much woosh and raj for the help you provided. And thank you vrf400 for your help as well. EDIT...

    How to add a throttle to a Carrera Vengeance E Spec

    Sorry I'm late, only got home at 2am so this morning i worked on it right away. Throttle: Channel A is D5, Channel B is A3 Pedals: Channel A is A2, Channel B is D13 I'm still using code 8.1 Readings 1.2
