So, I ordered all my parts, but there are some problems. Looking back I have to wonder “Why was I so dumb?” Anyway…
1. Bullet Connector This one isn’t that big of a deal as I know there are adapters out there. My VESC bullets are 5.5mm and my motor is 4mm. I found some on eBay, but they are $8.49 for one (I need three). I would rather not pay that much. Does anyone know of some cheaper ones?
2. Motor Shaft This one might be a problem. So, my pulley bore is 6mm, my motor shaft is 8mm. I bought my pulley from SDP/SI. I knew I wanted 13T, 5mm pitch. The only option for 15mm width (which I decided would be more reliable especially up hills) was 6mm bore. I wasn’t thinking and bought it. What do you guys suggest I do?
3. LiPo BMS This one isn’t a problem really, just something I need advice on. I was inspired by @Namasaki to do a 5x 2S LiPo BMS build. I bought 2S2P, but Namasaki told me that isn’t the best idea because then the BMS will only watch each parallel pack instead of all the cells individually. Should I return it and buy 2S1P?
Oof, that’s the end of it… for now. Hopefully my stupidity doesn’t hit you guys through your computer screen
Feel free to be tough, I have a thick skin. And also if you need anymore info, just ask.
