I need direction.
Currently: 40" double kick deck (Shorty later) 10s3p 25r with charge only bms Focbox 6374 170kv sensored from es8 .de (10mm shaft) Marcmt mount with idlers Caliber 44° 1/4" risers 15/36 15mm belt Was 97mm abec 11, not enough torque Now 83mm…meh. Gt2b mad monkey complete
I’m a little underwhelmed with the performance. I know I don’t have a lot to go on, but I do know it’s slow.
**Slow to accelerate, and lacking torque for even small short hills.
As is, it seems it’s not going to work well for its intended purpose, the lunch runner…i.e. Leave my truck at the job site, go find food, eat and return in 30-40 min.
It’s usually only around 2-3 miles or so to wherever sounds good.
I was hoping (on the 97 abec’)…for around 25mph/40km cruise speed with 28-30 mph top.
The basic calculator says 25mph max speed unweighted on 83mm, and it feels like it might do that on a full charge.
Issues: The mount, motor, belt and 36t pulley are way too close to the ground on 83mm wheels and will no doubt scrape often. I really want to use the 97’s that I have, but could buy some 90mm wheels I guess. Smallest motor pulley I can find is a 14t pulley with 10mm bore from beltingonlinedotcom
Direction, I need some.
Any positive experiences with single drives in regards to bunny hills, i.e. 8-10% or 5-6°?
In other news, I’ve got 107’s and a Hummie’s maplecarbonbamboo deck, and need to start collecting parts for it as well.
