Exactly. Plan is 13s on that rig…

Just wait until the all raw gear drives come in…


#2789

Yeah, that guy :face_with_monocle:
But this one is made for our application.

@akhlut first test one.

After seeing all the Hummie motor builds and your board here, I have come to the conclusion that I really like different color wheels front to back.

It is just cool.

Edit: Oh yeah, sorry about your belt. :cry:

Fully admitting my fuck up after examining my loop key set up with a clear mind and beggining to make a new one I realized that I hooked up the antispark wrong and instead of jumping positive to positive I hooked up positive to ground. I take full responsibility for my fuck up and I’m actually relieved it was something I did and not an actual component failure.

Just to make it clear I made a correct loopkey but I mixed the Vesc plug with the loop key plug and blew it up.

Your lucky your battery is a beast and could output the current demand, a smaller battery would have fried


#2793

My battery didn’t even get warm lol


#2794

Thx man!! I’m glad it got to you safely!


#2795

Don’t feel bad, I plugged a vesc up backwords once, it went kaboom :grinning:


#2796

I guess I’m lucky, I connected a flipsky backwards a few weeks back and it just made a funny noise it still runs fine tho. I guess it’s lucky I powered it with a lab psu


#2797

Is there a reason vesc’s don’t have reverse polarity protection?


#2798

Money I would assume. It shouldn’t be needed unless you do something dumb :grinning:


#2799

Well the verdict is in, both front Focbox blew DRV chips but the 2 rear survived. I’ll be running 2wd for a little bit lol now I’ll have real insane range.


#2800

Send em to @JohnnyMeduse, he will fix you up.


#2801

Oh I will get them shipped out by the end of the week I’ll pop them.open first to see if it’s even fixable.


#2802

that pretty much says it right there @Kaly


#2803

How did you the focboxs blow from shorting the battery? Were they connected straight to the battery and you shorted the pos of the vesc to the neg?


#2804

Yuuupppp!!!


#2805

Love it :-))


#2806

No only positive was connected to the Vesc no ground that’s where the loopkey should plug in. I guess the giant spark from shorting the + and - with the loopkey killed the drv ships.
