So I’m looking to replace mine with sensored ones for that smooth startup. The current 5055 motors on my kit has 8mm shaft diameter. I’m looking to find something that’s similar so I don’t have to change the pulley. My current motor specs
The only one I’ve found so far is the Maytech 5055, however their motor has a 6mm shaft, so a bit smaller than mine.
Wouldn’t it be just as easy to buy a new motor with an appropriate pulley
As it would be to buy a new motor that fits the pulley you already have and then have to take that pulley off your current Motor to put on the new Motors?
I don’t need to go fast, I’d prefer it to have enough torque to climb up hill since it’s pretty hilly where I live. So that means with a bigger motor, I can push more amps into it to make it take off faster? What’s your 5055 and does it have sensors?
It’s from @torqueboards , unfortunately they don’t sell them anymore
They had sensors, but I removed, now for my next build I’m putting them back
Take a look at these videos to have an idea of the performance
I also add a temperature sensor and will be easier to see how much current I can put in then without overheat, for now I use 40 A each
Keep in mind that my board is severely battery limited, I have a max of 30A drain, só in hills the speed drop, if I had a battery capable of 60 A or more it would climb way faster, but that’s fine for me
