I am having major issues sourcing a 2 motor set up for my MBS. My requirements are:
-Corded throttle control. Let it be known that cordless vehicle controls are against federal law in the US. I live near NYC so radio is impossible. I cant put my life and that of other peoples at risk over a run away board. Besides NYPD is impounding wireless boards right now thanks to all the hipsters with the runaway Boosted/other hipster boards who refuse to use a lanyard.
-Must be a 36-38v system. I run a 36v-20ah pack.
-Must be durable for off road use Its going to get dirty.
-Must be reliable. I have over 11k miles on my board right now. It has never ever broken down on me. I moved to chain early so other then a flat tire here and there I have had zero issues. I drive my board every single day weather permitting to and from work and any place around town I have to go. I average about 10-15 miles a day. On weekends I strap it on my enduro and take it into the woods for some fun here and there. I dont mind paying good money for good parts. My board is an electric vehicle that I rely on every day.
-My set up now will do 28-30mph with me on it running a single brushed 1000w. My average speed is between 20-26mph in most cases. It has to have enough juice to move my 270# at those speeds without turning into a toaster. Im not all that crazy about fast take offs. I drive in and with traffic a lot so my power range really needs to be between 20-26mph with a bit of head room.
I have stayed on my brushed setup because between the quality brushed motor and the PG Drive controller its as reliable as it gets. However Its time for me to graduate to a lighter setup. My knees are not what they once where and popping my brushed motor off the ground has become painfull for me. Sadly sourcing these new parts has been a giant pain in the butt. I have burned a few hobby king ESCs. Turnigy is off the list. Those motors turn to toast with me on them. Clearly not designed for EV applications by any measure.
So thats the entire story. I am open to anything thats corded and reliable.
