I’m going to post my boar specs here and ask for help.
I just got my board built, and it is massively slow. Lets start with specs.
SK3 5065 236kv motor
120A x-car beast series esc
14t motor pulley, 40t wheel pulley, 70mm wheels. pulley’s, belt, ect are all 5mm
2x 5000mah zippy 3s lipo batteries (series for 6s2p, 24v)
some cheap $20 quanum 3ch rx/tx
I managed a max speed around 6-8 mph max. I ran it for probably 3/4 mile full throttle at that speed to see if it heated up, and it was barely warm. Am I missing something? My end points on my controller seem fine, 24v should theoretically with 70% efficiency give me a bit over 10mph. I am shooting for 20mph, as you would expect. I’m not sure how I am supposed to achieve this. My motor seems to have plenty of torque, so should I be looking at something like a 15 to 36 tooth gear ratio? (fact is, it occasionally jumped the belt at something like half throttle, shame on me for having a loose belt :P) 3-5k rpm seems low for an e-longboard but at the same time the motor itself is max rated for 10s. I would prefer at all costs to stay at 6s since I have 2 sets of batteries and an esc that is rated for 6s.
