They do the job, best to avoid starting from a stand still, and it’s fine on essentially flat ground. Any bit of sustained slope would make it struggle, unless you’re kid-sized, hence why they work a bit better as a pair.
Pretty stiff riding feeling, and they tend to get pretty hot after a while, but so far (touching wood) not to the point of self destruction.
Superbly silent on FOC mode, that’s a nice thing.
And you can replace the $10 PU sleeve once worn out.
Snapped… ive also worn down my motor pulley quite a bit. I know wear is normal and these parts need to be replaced but getting replacement parts that don’t cost a ton to get shipped to me (QLD, Australia) is extremely difficult. I would rather a hub motor that doesnt require costly parts to be maintained.
I had them on a 10S battery. With VESC´s they are rideable, but 6S and 60kv, assuming it´s a Li/Ion battery will give you a whopping 26km/h topspeed.
Currently I am using the generic hubs which you can find on almost every cheap chinese prebuild and I like them better.
The Maytech hubs also have a 100kv variant, which might be a better match for you.
Anyway with Torqueboards direct drive launching on Blackfriday and maybe Enertions sale on the Raptor hubs,i would hold my breath for alittle longer.
I hink you might be underwhelmed by the performance of the hubs comnig from your Beltdrive.
What are you talking about? I live in queensland and have parts shipped regularly. Shipping is not extortionate but sometimes can be time consuming. Use the right sites and they all deliver.
That motor as a single will be rubbish on 6s. No torque at all. If you want something cheap to get the belt drive up and running then go for a hobby king pulley and get the belts from rs. Both deliver in less than a week from the aus warehouse.
