  • I love your music choice 👍 Every video is great. I can’t believe it took me so long to find you.

  • Some thought about motors: Motors are designed for 2 specialties. Speed, and Torque. High speed motors are going to have low torque. High torque motors of the same energy input are going to have less speed. Now, because you had a *drone* motor, that would tell you everything you need to know. Drones need speed for props, not torque. and because drones need to be lightweight and batteries are heavy, that means it doesnt have much power input. So a speed-oritented motor with low power input should've been the designation right off the bat. regardless, hindsight is 2020.

  • ninja

  • We did the same project at school 2 years before!

  • What kind of motor did you use there

  • You don't fool me Colin, that ain't 20.000 Watt mate, those are 4 turnigy batteries for an rc car.... For 20.000 Watt you'll need some 200 A 12V batteries, about 10 will do.... I 'm sure you know these tiny batteries aren't 20.000 Watt, so why do you have to fool us here?

  • Hey would anybody happen to know what motor and esc he uses?

  • I'm working on a similar project for college. Where can I buy a motor like that ? When I search for lynch motor it comes up with drone motors.

  • All Colin’s viewers just be waiting for him to do a giveaways

  • 9:30 DAMN!!!

  • Build me one and ship it over

  • Where did you get the parts from and is there a blueprint somewhere we can see

  • Why didnt you show us how it drives more

  • trial and error, u only learn from your mistakes

  • I find your lack of eye protection disturbing.

  • Colin! I have a 2000watt dirtking evoscooter but the acceleration is so poor and the top speed is probably abit to fast, how can i alter this!? There is nothing online about it and no parts from the manufacturer to modify it. Thanks 😊

  • First motor would’ve been fine! Just need position feedback sensor + an ESC that’d use it like ODrive or maybe VESC. Airplane motors can use ‘sensorless operation’ where the ESC just fumbles around to get the motor moving a little then they can sense approximately where it is in its spin and take over with some real power.. so no zero-speed torque. Gotta have the sensor!

  • 9:30 😮

  • 10:16 watch closely as this metal defecates. True beautiful nature.

  • also i heard UwU in a song

  • make a trackter go 50 kilometers per hour

  • He should Turn a limousine in a driving home

  • Subscribed & Joined 🤟😎

  • Where did u get the motor and esc

  • 2.0 gigawatts wow

  • I think the white bike was my old blike

  • For your CNC plasma Cutter do you have a THC for it or do you find the water table does a great job to keep metal from warping. im going to be building a router cnc and i would like to make it plasma interchangeable but adding THC will be very hard.

  • What motor was used? Does anyone know?

  • this thing is sweet

  • I am inspired by this guy love to you COLIN...🔥❤️

  • colin reminds me of the weasley brothers in harry potter😂😂

  • Wow man, bloody wow

  • ياخي كلو زق

  • Hilariously funny a riot to watch thanks for your videos bro

  • Colin you should make a second channel for more of the behind the scenes

  • I'd like to know how the rear wheels are attached. He really didn't show it.

  • Put a really powerful cc motor on a bike

  • `

  • Madman

  • can you make a helicopter with bicycle and with some basic items

  • I’ll give you £50 for it

  • I don’t know how his neighbors stand that noise lol

  • Your just riding a car and you see Colin zooming past you

  • 9:30 what does that even mean?

  • What’s the hydraulic machine at 5:16? Is that frame rate changed or it actually cuts that slowly? Dumb question?

  • "making a drifting 20000 watt electric chair"

  • Can you make a drift trike frame out of 3D printed parts

  • If you are selling any please tell me

  • How much cost this Projekt?

  • Bro where does he store all these creations😂

  • How much spend your money for this electric bike

  • 6:46 "All you gotta do is do his a**

  • So weird,looks like he has a boring life 🍁

  • He kept humping everything. Imagine what his poor wife feels.

  • Follow my channel

  • Здравствуйте! Можно на русском языке ваши видео))?

  • Could you do a vid of your shop and how much was the equipment... please

  • he is the most awesome mechanical engineer I've ever seen in my whole life

  • When you started building I thought you actually clickbaited, couz that drone motor isn't even near 20kw, but than I saw that this will probably never happen on this channel.

  • Well he is like Dexter from Dexter's laboratory 🤔

  • Ah yes, he has extracted the magic smoke the motor runs on rendering it useless
