I have been riding my board for about 2 months now and love this thing however I am getting use to it and am basically full throttle everywhere I go, max speed is only 23mph (would like to be 27-30mph) calculator says I should be way faster so Im assuming I need to make some focbox adjustments (thinking about FOC mode but not sure how to setup safely) also my range seems mediocre for a 12s2p. Can you guys help me with my settings to get more juice/range/FOC setup out of this thing?
Torqueboards 6374 190kv
Torqueboards nano remote

Torqueboards motor mount
Also will be adding another 6374 and upgrading battery to 12s4p in a couple months!
One limiting factor is that at full voltage, your setup would exceed 60k erpm, so the focbox will limit the maximum erpm to 60k. But you should still be getting better than 23mph. How tight is your belt?
I’d also double check your controller setup to make sure you’ve got full range there.
Yes it does seem slightly slow for that setup. In the calc it says you should hit 27mph before the Vesc limits the erpm. The only thing I can think of is if the battery can’t supply enough amps to get to that speed
Absolute max should NEVER be set lower than 130a
Absolute max is a last resort in case soft limit strategies fail.
You really don’t want absolute max to be activated because it will cause a sudden loss of power that could throw the rider off the board.
So with those specs what should the battery max be set to? 30a? Or 80a?
I also noticed you have the regen set to 10a which the battery normally charges at 2a or 4a, don’t know if that makes a huge difference but I’ve set mine to 4a on my torqueboards battery.
I have the 6S4P battery from them and it has identical amp ratings, 30a continuous and 80a peak. I’m now questioning how I setup mine.
In order to determine correct battery min current, we would need to know what cells are used in the battery and what their maximum charge rate is. Multiply that by 2 because it’s 2p
The bms is limited to 30a continuous and 80a peak so setting battery max to 30a would be the safest solution.
If the battery has a 30a fuse, you don’t want to blow that fuse while your riding because a total shut down could cause a dangerous situation.
Motor max can go as high as 80a and more motor max will increase torque especially at low speeds.
Since the system is running 12s voltage and higher voltages yield more torque as well, I would recommend raising the motor max current 10a at a time and trying it out until desired torque is achieved.
Looking at the 12S2P specs it’s made with Samsung 30Q cells which doing some research I found to have a 15a continuous discharge and a 1.5a standard charge rate and 4.0a max charge.
15 x 2 = 30a continuous
1.5 x 2 = 3a battery min or 4.0 x 2 = 8a battery min
