After three reliable years and over 1k miles on my very first build. I finally have to retire it. The motors are shot, the VESC are outdated and burned out, and the batteries only hold a 75% charge.
First Build: Moose Drop down deck 36V 13Ah battery Dual 5055 1400W 270KV motors Dual VESC 4.12 from hobbyking 97mm Wheels 32/16 2:1 gear ratio with 10mm belt Caliber II 40 trucks
This baby gave me a solid 3 years of transportation to and from work cruising at a nice 28-30mph (according to Waze)
New Build: Unknown deck (still deciding) Dual 6374 2900W motor FESC 4.2 dual ESC 32/16 2:1 gear ratio 100mm wheels 48V 21ah battery caliber II 50 trucks (to be upgraded to trampa 12Fifties)
Also, Quick question.
How does the motor sensors hook up to the VESC? VESC is 6 pin and motor is 5 pin.
Update: Here are some pictures of the new setup. The deck is not what I will be using, I was just making sure my new custom battery mounts worked. (Motor mounts from boardnamics.) But motor and truck setup is what I will use until I get 12fifties
