I’ve got the motor and batts!
10,000 MAh of Zippy lipos.
The only issue is that they don’t pack 100% square. The wires that come out are really thick. Also, the connectors on them are pretty weird. Not exactly sure how I’ll sort it out, that would be a lot of XT90s or 60s or whatever.
Here’s the motor. Its pretty big.
Aaannndd all taken apart!
The biggest thing I’m not sure about right now is the motor/battery setup. If I go 6s2p on the stock 149kv, theoretical top speed on a full charge is almost 40mph- that’s insane. If I change the winding from WYE to delta, theoretical top speed is 23- so in real life that’s probably closer to 20, so as the battery runs down it probably will sag all the way down to 15 or so, much too slow for what I like. If I jump to 9s with the WYE modification, top speed is more reasonable but it’s annoying to lose a battery. I’ll see what happens. I way do some funky rewire-but-not-rewind of the motor to like 1/3rd the kv, with 12s? who knows lol. Stay tuned!
