So I been out to day on my 1st unfinished DIY build. Only on 1 motor working (Still wating on enclosher to arrive and replacement Vesc that won’t powered up! so much for quality control and testing that you boast about scramboards) named and shamed. Can only blame my self for over reading older posts on the forum and went with 4.12 with extra heatsinks should have read less and looked at dates of builds and got a foxbox. Think I’m the only persion to regret over reading
I’m sure you lot will have some thing to say about my temp enclosure.
Did a few trips up and down the street re tensioned the belt increased the braking power on Vesc set to -50 motor -12 batt regen, tighnened and lock tite bolts. Test battery cell voltage. Fully recharged battery’s 10s3p 25r (yep over read old posts and the spe looked better than q30 on paper) I think most of the normal things I’m guessing every one dose. Today I decided to push it a bit more with a trip down to the shops let’s say 1 1/2 miles down the road (eco me not using the car). 1/2 way there I felt what I thort must be belt slipping. Couple of clicks under braking. Must be stretching in as it’s new so I’m guessing it’s just bedding in. but the belt feels purity tight. I mean I think I have the brakes quite gental as it brakes fine at high speed (15 mph ish it high to me as a novis still working up to full throttle) but want it brake harder as it comes to a stop. Hoping the second motor will provide enough stoping power later when the Vesc replacement arrived (that thay charging me another 30% of the original cost more nameing and shaming scramboards). so took it very easy on the way back. Took it apart to look at the belt and it’s just ripping teeth off the belt not wearing them off as I’d exspect total carnige of hole teeth hanging off
Is this normal were and tear from a 9mm alien power system belt with in its 1st mile. I’ve checked so many times the alignment and that motor sits perfect. with no belt movement from sided to side no matter what way you spin the wheels and it sits in the middle of the motor pully happily with out walking to a side
I don’t really understand how it’s so trashed I’m not raging it around yet as I’m not confident enough to. so I can’t be demanding that much from the system yet.
What’s your recommendation?
To I try a new belt from somewhere els
I have a alien power system steel 9mm T12 motor pulls but I think it’s big enough to take a 12mm belt. I’m using alien power system wheel pulls 36T wheel pulls 9mm I could upgrade this to 15mm
I got enough space to get a 12mm belt if I upgrade the wheel pully
possibly a 15mm belt if I used some speed rings as there’s a few threads on the wheel lock nut exposed and upgrade the motor pully.
Is my pully bending the belt to much. I have a street wing 15T motor pully but i think is only going to fit a belt of 11mm wide max thay only had one in stock could get a 2nd?
Or something else I’ve not thort of
Yes I’m planing on running a slow 12-36 ratio on dule 6355 with 83mm Kegal wheels was thinking I could get use to it and get more speed later when I was more competent on a board.
