So, I’m patiently waiting for my Direct Drive from Jenso. And patiently is really true, cause there ist still lot’s of stuff to do until i could take off with the board.
-add new caps to the VESC -finish the VESCS-housing and all teh VESC-wiring -fine-tune my magura-servo-brake project look here if interested -finish my 9"-tyre-Superstar-hub-Project -add hall-sensors and thermistor to my sk3 168KV
-finish my makita-battery-pack holder —>no wait,… after one whole day hanging out in the workshop i finished that actuallyhttps://esk8content.nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com/uploads/db2454/original/3X/e/9/e9a099746e6db1e5dd4fa72a8d6f63f2b0691820.JPG” width=“374” height="500"style=“rotate(90deg)”><img src=“https://esk8content.nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com/uploads/db2454/original/3X/3/7/37e3b37046c9df9783decfea60c528eff2e5ff39.JPG” width=“374” height="500"style=“rotate(90deg)”>
I Know that this build is pretty crazy, why should someone make such a´big deal out of it like me.
Let me explain: One of my several Jobs is Arborist (Tree-Climber). I work with Makita 36Volt (2X18Volt) Chainsaws in teh trees. To be effective in a arborist Job i own around 12 makita 5Ah packs.
So my idea already came up when i started building a e-bike. So i did: i use 3s4p Makitapack = 15s8p VTC5 (witch are originally build into the Makita Packs)
To really effectively use those packs i decided to also pack them on my e-trampa. But this solution was not that easy like in my e-bike where i just suffed the Packs into a frame-bag.
Sure: i’m aware of the problematics, that some of the Packs are older or more used/aged than the others, but at the moment i do not care. I started making a tally-sheet on the packs-backside to keep track of the cycles.
on one Photo you see a bigger housing of the Pack: this is a chinese empty remake of the Makita packs where 5s3p instead of originally 5s2p fit in. I plan to make VTC5A or 6 Packs into them that would make a 8Ah pack. And that would mean if i stick all 8 Packs into the Holder i built i would have 10s12p 37Volt 30Ah. So that would take me quite a bit.
In a few weeks/days ill get @Nowind 's Direct Drive so ill keep you updated, if anyone is interested.
