What to sets amps at?

I have a Flipsky 6.6 and I am running my motors at 60amp but the vesc can run it up to 100amps and my motors max amps is 80. What I’m asking is it bad to have the amps set to the motor max will it lead to reliability issues?

Set your battery discharge to the highest safe discharge rate of your battery. Battery regen should not exceed your batterys charge rating, but in some cases i would not care to much here and rather have good braking potential and less battery life spawn, you don’t have to press full brake it’s your choice when you need them.

Motor amps can be set higher, just feel if they are getting hot. They usually last until the conformal coating on the windings melt or the magnets degenerate due to heat.
