So I recently switched from a 6355 190kv to a tacon 160 6364 245.
I"m running 8s 10ah lipo with a vesc. 50A motor 30A batt. 14/36t on 80mm kegels.
I got the top speed increase I expected. maybe a bit more. from 20mph to 24mph. range is still about 16 miles. but My hill climb torque is sad, and if I full throttle on my usually speed runs it feels like the vesc is heating up and losing power…
I expected a bit less torque from upping the kv, but this almost gives up when I push it hard. while on the top end it feels like it still wants to pull more. so maybe more power (55-60A motor) will help it run better? or I have just hit the limit of a relatively high kv, mid voltage setup?
Not interested in theory, Just want to know if anyone else has a single drive with 230kv+ on 8s?
