125 KMH / 77 MPH Custom Built Dualtron Thunder
With a 125 KMH top speed capability, this Dualtron Thunder chassis and motors can take a beating. Aron pushes it to the limit. What I love most about his build is the custom controller bracket on the stem and the modifications to the stock motors. The stem mounts create a clean and tailored look without resorting to mounting a heavy battery pack on the stem and creating stress on the front end.

Aron Gabor & the 125 KMH Modded Dualtron Thunder
I am 34 years old and an IT engineer. I work in IT. I bought my first scooter 2 years ago. I wanted to see what electric scooters were like. My first scooter was a Kugoo S1. It had a lot of flaws, so I tried to refine it. Then came the Xiaomi M365 and the M365 pro. I always tried my best to improve the scooters and make them unique. After that, the big jump was to an Inokim OXO. I thought it didn’t need to be better, but I tried to refine it too, and I realized I needed a perfect scooter, so I figured I’d build one. I bought a semi-finished Dualtron III electric scooter, converted it to be completely unique, and then came the current Thunder…
Why did you choose the Dualtron Thunder for the rebuild project?
I found a factory-used Thunder at a reasonable price; I sold almost all of the stock parts, only the frame left with the two engines. I went after it and knew the primary engines with a bit of modification could be a good alternative, so I kept them. I designed the battery and controller box; both were put together very precisely by a friend.
Dualtron Thunder Research and Testing
I already had experience from my previous Dualtron III construction, so the plans were already in my head, but I couldn’t always deal with it, so it took quite a bit of time to complete, about four months. Of course, there were mistakes. First, when the first test came together, many things had to be improved, e.g., suspension, placement of controls, handlebar height, and new tire choice because there was no traction.
Custom Dualtron Thunder Drivetrain, Motors, battery and controllers
I also had YYK controllers in my previous construction, with only a 60V battery. I was happy with them, so I thought it could come again with a 72V battery. However, I also replaced all the cables because they were sized at the bottom. I decided to modify the factory motors as I wrote because I saw that their winding was good when disassembled, but the wiring was not.
It had to be modified to AWG10 silicone cables, for which the shaft had to be drilled thicker. Or I had to put hall sensors in the engine. It already has a place in the factory engine, so I didn’t have a hard time. I thought if the engine isn’t going to be good like this, I’ll get other engines into it, but the conversion has gone well. I’m thrilled with them. They’re capable of outstanding performance and don’t overheat this way.

Do you have tips or tricks for other people who want to accomplish something similar?
Don’t have a girlfriend or wife? All jokes aside, have perseverance and some sense of it, without which, unfortunately, it won’t go. The back of the control brackets must be made of aluminum with heat sink notches and be dimensioned to fit the wiring comfortably.
Thanks & Shout-outs!
Of course, I got a lot of parts from Ken Sonken quickly, thanks to him here too, and to my friend and battery builder. He did a straightforward job. And to my wife, who endured this because it was already my second build. There will be a divorce on the third day of construction…
