2 I’ve read that the motor max for the R-Specs is 80A (continuous?) but was afraid of potential issues for some reason, thanks for the confirmation here.
3 Would this be determined by my C-Rating multiplied by my Ah? Theoretical max for me would be 40*4=160?
That would be the maximum for the battery. But it doesn’t make sense to go higher than the motor max. And you want power that is controllable. If you want more power and speed then you should uprade your system to a 9S, 10S or 12S.
4 I’m assuming this is based off of Chaka’s post. I wonder why the defaults wouldn’t be set to this in the first place.
Because originally it was for a vesc which could only handle 50V. But the newer versions can handle up to 60V, but you want some safety buffer. So keep it at 57V. No issues on my 12S System with that.
5 I know this is the standard number and several people mention it on the forums…Wouldn’t this be a calculation based off of the theoretical max amp draw assuming low voltage? In my case due to Battery cutoff start at 21.6V, Rated wattage of the motor is 3000W which brings my max Amps to about 139. I’m really just piecing this all together as my electrical knowledge is poor at best.
I also don’t understand this value completely. Need to check the source code to know how it is handled. But no time atm.
