Carvon v2 like new $400 SOLD


#1

Pretty much new carvons for sale. I have been waiting for vescs forever, finally got them, hooked the carvons up and blew a drv chip in one of them switching from foc to bldc. Near my place is pretty hilly, so I am thinking I should just sell these basically new carvons and switch to a single bigger satellite motor to eat these hills…

#3

Well, i would not recommend the switch from two to one motor… especially because you are living in a pretty hilly area. For hills everyone here would recommend two motors. It does not mean that you cannot drive hills up, it means you cannot “eat” hills :wink:


#4

Well, my thought is one big satellite motor would probably do as well as two carvons? In either case, I am going to get another motor when more vescs arrive


#5

One big motor will not be enough. Your idea of a second motor when the missing VESCs arrives is good.


#6

Great food for thought. I am new to esk8, have 4 ebikes I put together. I have never really ridden an esk8 before the other day when I was trying to configure the vesc. It seemed sweet, like a magic carpet ride. I primarily use my longboards for kite surfing. How much drag does a 12mm dual big motor setup have when you let off the gas?


#7

I have one small motor and its great on hills as long a you gear it for torque and not top speed and have at least a 10s battery
I’m doing 13/36 at 12s (worked fine on 9s too)
TB 6355 230kv motor


#8

Where do you buy 13/36, enertion only has 15/36…


#9

you can get as low as 12T pulley from DIYelectricskateboard.com. Just be wary that going with such low teeth count may result in belt skipping.


#10

Yep DIY 13t 12mm
No skipping yet fingers crossed

I’m actually even going to try 13/40 with the help of another forum member 3D printing a 40t pulley for me


#11

Check out my single build: Carbon Python | Hi5ber Python | Caliber II’s | Single 6374 | Hi-Output VESC | 12S Lipo

I regularly pull 240 lbs up fairly steep hills with that setup. Any one lighter than that would consider it a hill eater.


#12

Are the Carvons still for sale?


#13

Yep, still have them.


#14

I’ll take em, if kedwards doesn’t want them (since he asked first it’s only polite!). Hoping to start my build with them.


#15

Go dual for hills if they are really steep and you plan on climbing 5-10+ hills at once. Single will work and should do well though.

@Bender I’ll have 40T for ABEC about mid month.


#16

I certainly appreciate the politeness @jsohal! - They’re all yours; sadly still a bit out of my budget atm


#17

The price appears to keep falling on these- if jsohal hasn’t picked them up yet, I’ll take them at $400 (assuming my eyes aren’t deceiving me)…


#18

still have them, pm me…

I ordered some 13/36, 90mm wheels, r spec 637? and a vesc, curious to try my hill. I have a sweet spot right by doorstep! You are printing a pulley? Shouldn’t pulleys be made out of metal? I would be curious to hear how the 40t works. What size wheel?
