So I’ve read a lot about E-boards and what parts I should get, gear ratios, Motor Kv’s, wheel types, etc.
But I’m going for a little bit of an unconventional approach.
I’m just a little confused on batteries. First, let me tell you what I’ve already bought.
15 Teeth and 40 Teeth both 5mm pitch.
400KV 1375W 80A Brushless Outrunner
10 Gauge wire
65 Tooth Pulley Belt
150A Car ESC
So my question is what battery I should get. I was looking at this 5000MaH 4S 20C battery:
With the gears, it is a 2.667 ratio and at 14.8 V, @ 5,920 RPM, it goes to 22 MPH. I’m looking for a top speed of around 20, but I probably don’t need to go that fast to be honest.
Unfortunately, I cannot find any batteries that are 5000 MaH 6S 20C, which is what I planned on. Would a different C value battery at 4S or 6S be possible? I’m afraid that a higher amperage like that would negatively effect heat and possibly be too much for my components.
This is mostly for commuting about 2-3 miles on flat ground on city streets.
Thank you for any input, it is greatly appreciated.
