I am looking to build a dual 6374 build with 100a worth of power (more on that in a bit) and am worried about burning the ESC’s out after a few forum posts (given, I don’t recall why users ESC’s failed, or what type they were using or whether it’s actually an issue to be too concerned about).
My concern is burning up the ESC. I’m thinking TORQUE ESC’s, which max out at 50a continuous/240a peak.
I am going to run a 12s2p A123 26550 pack. Continous run 100a total, with a peak of 240a.
At what point should one worry about how much power the ESC’s can handle? Should I make 2 separate 12s packs and throw 50a BMS’s on them, or would that be overkill.
I will certainly have a BMS on the pack(s) for balance charging, but not certain whether I should wire directly to the ESC, or do my best to protect the ESCs.
Would Focbox, with the extra 10a of support be a better idea if I am my max continuous is 50a?
VESC6 is out of my price range.
