Enertion Raptor 2.1 First Ride Birmingham UK

Thanks to Davis for putting this together from the footage we had from the weekend.

I will say that bloody Raptor is SCARY!!!


Nice video !! Did you try top speed??

not even close, the way it accelerates(and breaks) in performance mode doesn’t inspire confidence and you back off a lot.

I actually feel a lot safer and more confident on the wowgo at high speed

Thats a matter of vesc Tool configuration. I felt that the nano accelerates faster than my gt2b mod but like i said only configurations.

But i do admit that the r2 has plenty of Power!

I want to run 12S on this … dont know if it a good idea

I run raptor 2 hubs on vesc 6 with 12S4P pack. Not enough power :smiley: image


Your board look so nice!!! How much speed do you get ? And did you get the battery from torque board??

No clue about the top speed as I’ve never tried. I stopped at 50km/h since I didn’t have leathers on but it had plenty left I bet. If the stock raptor does 50km/h with 80mm it should do 62.5km/h with 100mm since it’s 25% ish difference. Bumping up the voltage by 20% should give 75km/h theoretically. Will be less due to wind and voltage sag and so on. I’m happy with 30km/h or so so it’s way overkill.

Built the battery myself from samsung 30Q bought at nkon.nl. Some more about the build here. https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/landyachtz-evo-36-falcon-2018/51745

Main problem with raptor hub motors is the heat tho. You can’t max it out for long before the truck will be hot hot hot :smiley:

Yeah i read a lot about heat issue … that why i want to go 12S , in theory i should get less heat because i can set lower amp motor right??

And thanks for the link!

Energy is Energy :smiley: If you have more power at your thumbs you will use it and that will make more heat I’m pretty sure ^^

Yes that what im thinking too :P! Do you have to stop often because of the heat :s?? And How much motor amp did you put ?? Sorry for all the question … :slight_smile:

I’m using a custom hanger with better cooling so it’s a lot better now. I don’t really stop to let it cool but I don’t push it for 10km uphill either. I run 60 motor amps now.

How much range do you get with this battery pack :)?!

No clue :stuck_out_tongue: never ridden it more than 10km in one run.

Because pf the heat pr you just do small run :P?

Never tried any longer. Could prolly do way more but I don’t ride much and never went on any longer trips.

I was riding in a city once and the board just went full throttle on me and I was left standing on my feet looking at the board launch into a construction fence. After that I never had confidence with it again. Most likely I will rebuild it as a push bike/scooter since it’s easier to bail and hold it then :smiley:
