Hello everyone! I have been reading this forum for a week now and have ordered some stuff. I will be starting the motor mounting part of the build next week once I receive the trucks. I have a few questions from these diagrams before I purchase the acessories.
Diagram 1: Replace w/ 5.5mm
Diagram 2: Replace w/ 4mm
Battery Wiring Questions: Solved
Question 1: From the 2 pictures, which do you think is more practical? Having all connectors be 5.5mm or 4mm? I just was wondering if I would mess anything up on either the motor, VESC, or batteries by soldering on different connectors.
Question 2: I am not sure what diyelectricskateboard sends with his VESC but on his site it said 10AWG 5.5mm bullet connectors. So I am assuming the connectors are on both the motor and battery side?
Question 3: Since my batteries will be in series, are my arrows(or wiring) correct?
Motor Mounting Questions
Question 4: I did not receive a key with my motor. How important is it for me to have one in the Motor Pulley? I have seen some examples here where people “chiseled” the shaft. What does that accomplish?
Question 5: I only received one Circlip with my motor. Don’t I need 2? One for the motor and one for the motor pulley?
Please answer any questions you can! It will help me a lot to get this started! Thanks!
My board w/o modifications, yet!
