The plus is definitely awesome (omg the footpads and quiet ride), but as a v1 lover it seems buggy and cannot handle the same terrain as v1. Let me explain.
OW commuter, have been shredding NYC cobblestones the past 6 months. Fighting through pushback is my game, carving top speed loving it
Anyway, this weekend has been all about the plus and I just decided to give the commute a whirl. Damn. All my favorite spots have left me wondering what the f$@#... This plus is not good for rough terrain. At least with the current top shaping (mission).
For no good reason at all my tail drags. The v1 does not have this problem. Going top speed just now on cobblestones, the tail suddenly dropped and skidded for a good 10 feet and somehow I was able to run it out. Similar tail drops on random bumps. Usually I can pop over potholes and even launch off manholes on unpaved streets (this is awesome..) but with the plus it is super sketchy and annoying every damn tail drop.
As for the bugs -- Randomly there is a feeling that the motor disengages for a second while going fast. Hard to describe, maybe the word is "freewheeling" I'm not sure what it is but my v1 doesn't have this problem. Again SUPER sketchy.
I'm wondering if there is a problem with my board. Maybe Delirium will fix this. Copy and pasting this to FM
