2022-10-15 (Sa) PoweredInlineSkates Ready to test

I wasn't fond of the scooter kit's stock throttle, so I bought a replacement. I cut off the faulty-wired end of the included one and soldered my thumb-operated version to the correct places, which means the wire colors don't match up accurately. Another bit of the electronics I don't want to mess with at this point is the key, but that is because it's cumbersome. I plan to replace the physical key with an RFID version. After putting everything on, even my helmet, I noticed that the front wheel on my left skate was loose because the bolt wasn't long enough to reach the locknut's nylon insert. I removed it, but I didn't have a suitable replacement, and it was late, so I cut a piece of 5/16" (8 mm) threaded rod and put locknuts on each end. While the wheel was off, I added a 22 mm spacer between the wheel bearings, but when I reassembled it, the spacer didn't seem to add any benefit. Everything felt stable, so I set up my phone and recorded a few tests of me motoring across the room.
