Hi there! I’ve been trying to decide whenever two 5065 motors will be enough (wont burn out) for an emtb?
One thing - though
The board is gonna have 6’’ inch or so wheels, the wheels are quite light but of course they are still pneumatics…but I do believe they are not as cumbersome when rolling compared to the 9inch ones I got for my 1st board.
Here’s the look at the wheels:
I know @dinodave is running dual 5065 and he seems to be quite ok with them! I found a comment where he said that by running through grass n such they do get hot but I think I could make the same happen with my 6374 if I rode it hard…
Voltage is gonna be 8-10s by the way, so if I can pull around 30A max from each motor, I think I will have plenty of power anyways… 60A @ 36v = 2160w and 40A = 1440W.
So far Ive only pulled around 1200w on my 6s 6374 9inch wheel 4.33 ratio setup…So I think if 2 motors can push out 1500w, I should be fine… especially when riding in the city…(no hills at all)
