So for the past couple of months now I have been doing my research trying to figure out the best setup for me. I live in the on a campus with a lot of hills so right off the back wanted to go with a pully system rather than hub motors because of the more tork, however, I still wanted to have both of my back wheels powered. So instead of two vesc, motors, and everything else. I would just have a one vesc, one motor but two pulleys and gear sets on each of the back wheels the motor I was thinking of using is the alien power C8085 sensored Outrunner brushless motor 250KV 6000W ( Here is the link as well http://alienpowersystem.com/shop/brushless-motors/c8085-sensored-outrunner-brushless-motor-250kv-6000w/) as for the rest of the build I am going to use a Vesc and a 10s2p li-ion battery that I will be making myself to keep the price down.
As for my board setup, I am running a 36in bamboo deck with caliber2 44 degree trucks and 80mm orangutang wheels with risers.
Anyway I think my main question is do u guys think this setup will work and if so where do you think I could find two 80mm motor mounts?
So you will drive both wheels with 1 motor?
edit: Oh I had not seen that motor before, stupid question
btw you know that this is a huge motor? 80mm diameter, think about the ground clearance, I should go for bigger wheels (90mm-…)
Yeah, 10s2p isn’t even half of what that motor wants. You’re gonna end up with the equivalent of a solid rear axle, no diff, so you’re gonna have some weird turning effects. I think you could get away with a 6374 or 6384 and still have more than enough power if you went with a 10s3p or larger.
yea i can climb some big ass hills around here with a mono 6374, just use lower gearing (16/36T) with smaller wheels (83 or 90mm) and you should be fine. back it up with a 10s or 12s, minimum 4p pack. probably wont go full speed up hills but you’ll make it up.
only thing is there are very short, intermittent loss in traction, especially on steeper descent.
what you’re proposing seems overly complicated with many points of failure.
Take note that a VESC is only rated for about 60A and a max voltage of 12S. With one vesc you will get 60123,7=2600 watts of continuous power. With a larger motor you might still get more torque but you wont get any more power out of it…
