So I’ve been using my first DIY for a while now and my settings have been sufficient for me. I tried being conservative with them because it’s my first build and I don’t want it to go up in flames, but I feel like I’m limiting myself and the board’s potential. My settings are:
Motor max: 80 (160 total)
Motor min: -60 (-120 total)
Batt max: 35 (70 total)
Batt min: -20 (-40 total)
Since my board is mostly a Kaly clone (Trampa with 8-in wheels) I followed his settings with a few tweaks (+20 motor amps, +5 batt amps)
My battery pack is a 12s8p with 0.15mm thick 8mm wide nickel strips:
So if there’s any bottleneck on the cell level, it’s the 4 nickel strips connecting the PCB and the 8p cells.
For series, I’m using copper braid:
I can’t remember the specs on these but I’m not that worried about it being a bottleneck.
I’m using 12awg wires connected to an antispark with an 80a fuse, then to an xt60 parallel harness.
On the motors side I’m using SK8 6374 motors with these specs:
Given the components that I’ve enumerated, should I keep my settings or push it more? Should I double down on the series nickel strips? Do I need more batt amps?
Hoping to get some feedback, thanks!
