I’m in the process of building an eMTB with a Trampa base, Direct Drive system from @Nowind and dual VESC-X (separate topic running here), but was after some specific electrical advice here so it wouldn’t get lost with the other thread.
How much power can I put into the VESC-X? I know a lot of eMTB builds focus on high burst lipos but is there a danger I’ll buy too much power and not be able to use it or just blow my VESCs??
Would I be silly spending loads of money on expensive lipos when some cheaper 20c would do the job if I have to restrict my BLDC settings??
Speaking of which what are the safe max settings for the VESC-X?
I have to say I’m totally useless when it comes to this side of things as I built my first board with a SPACE CELL 4 so all the hard work was done for me. I’m having to work a little harder on this one!
For motors I’ll be using either SK3 6374 149kv or 168kv and was hoping to run a 12s2p battery with at least 10ah.
Hopeful this isn’t too vague, I know I’ll also need to order connectors, and make a loop key or anti-spark so any additional info to help finish the electrical side of things would be greatly appreciated. Ideally if anyone can point me towards a complete build to learn from that would be great.
As per my linked topic above I want to ride this beast on BMX and motocross tracks so I’m mostly interested in immediate hard (but smooth!) acceleration / torque.
