I’ve been reading around here a lot and I can’t seem to find a specific answer.
I’m going to begin with the VESC vs Other ESCs. I’ve read all the benefits of the VESC and I do plan on buying one after I pay off my phone, but some specific questions arose. Is the VESC actually capable of taking off from a stopped position? Also, my current setup is really loud, especially when braking. I’m sure most people know what the braking sound is. Is it the ESC? I have the Hobbywing EZ-Run 120A.
My next questions are regarding upgrades that will increase speed. I’m only able to get speeds between 16 and 18 mph (~26-30 kph). I have the Enertion R-Spec motor 6355. What is this motor’s full potential? Is it a bottle neck? I kind of know what usually needs upgrades, but I’m just unsure.
My last question is about cases/enclosures. I saw the ABS enclosures on @longhairedboy’s shop, but my board is concave. What other options are there? Right now, I have a little box from Wal-mart and it doesn’t do a good job of protecting. It’s decent at best. I also have a small box for my RGB led controller and 12v DC battery pack, for the lights. Shown here:
I just want everything unified and nice looking. This is a very long post and I want to apologize for that, but I have needs…
Just kidding, I really couldn’t find an answer.
