I am thinking about to build my third esk8, all the things are prepared well(focbox,12S battery, trampa truck, carbon fiber deck as recommanded.remote VX3 and other parts) What I am confused is about which motor should I choose?
There is a kind of illusion that I am bored with the 63 series, or I don’t feel the same passion as before. 63100 is worthy to try,I see some review videos on youtube, but a wide enough truck is needed.That’s not available for all my esk8.Considered about 80 series motors, 80100 83100 ,but they have big body and heavy weigh, of course not suitable for me to mount them on .
So my question is that anyone know if there any 70 series motors in the esk8 market？ 70 series motors will be more compatible with many builds? I am soappreciate if anyone can recommand some of them , thanks for all your help!
You can get 70mm inrunner if size is what matters for you.
One suggestion thou before going bigger motors because apparently the smaller ones are not strong enough:
Check your esc settings and your overall system.
Bigger motor on a small battery do not help you any better.
Same if the escs constantly overheat with proper current settings.
I‘m always surprised how much power I can get out of my 6374 motors and I tried all different sizes of motors and bigger is not always better and in most cases also not needed.
Play around with your gearing. Gear as low as you can to get to your desired top speed. It will also improve battery life. My trampa was geared for 42mph LMAO. I rarely go over 25 so I geared down to 28mph and battery life improved and torque is stupid so I had to turn down my vesc settings.
But of course if you don’t need more, then running less battery current can be more reliable and less likely to break and provide more range and battery longevity, so I would still set the FOCBOX at 25A battery max unless/until the time you need more.
