V5F's can cut out too

Katie loves her V5F and pushes it hard.  The other week we saw that even the Inmotion wheel will cut out when asked to do too much, however unlike a lot of Gotway wheels, it won't self destruct in the process.  She was doing reversals and tried one where she really was abrupt with the transition.  Evidently the current draw was too much and the wheel shut off.  She didn't fall although the wheel wound up on it's side.  She was able to fire the V5F right back up and it was fine the rest of the ride.  It was an example of how any wheel can fail when asked to do more than it was engineered to do.  The difference is when manufacturers set that limit below what causes permanent, catastrophic failure, a lesson Gotway should learn.
