What’s Your True Range? Talking about going out and riding your board not theoretical numbers you calculated.
There’s been a lot of talk about ranges and what’s doable for what set up under what circumstances and so lets but an end to it. Here post your specs and your range so that we, the people of the forum, can see what type of performance to truly expect from products that are available. Vesc settings are not posted because we all dont have VESCs and there would be way too many things to consider. For hub motors, your ration is 1:1 as it is direct drive.
Just copy the following and replace the text with your stats.

Comments: Any additional information that might be relevant. How flat it is where you ride, do you have accelerate like a mad man, do you coast often, etc.

Comments: It’s quite flat where I board around. I dont accelerate hard, usually push on start up. No elevation changes, pretty smooth paved campus so I dont add 10% to my numbers for coasting down hills.
