Hey everyone, long time since I last posted, hope you’re all well.
I still have my Vanguard and the outer grub screws, that hold onto the shaft, have failed on one of my motors. I wanted to ride it this weekend at the Evolve Hog Hill event here in the UK. Is there any way I can just unplug the bad motor and re-run a normal motor detection? Or does it go deeper than that? I’m completely out of the loop (life happened), so I apologise if I’m being a noob. Thanks in advance!
Dunno, there’s a super single fw for the unity, which utilizes both sides from the ESC on one motor. That’s a pretty different usecase to your problem though. I don’t see why connecting just one motor would destroy anything, though.
Oh your grub screws failed? How often do you forsee yourself removing the pulley in the future? If it’s gonna be permanent-ish, get some green loctite 638/648, clean the motor shaft and the inside of the pulley with alcohol, and smear a decent amount onto the pulley and that’ll be way stronger than grubs.
Would be a shame to throw a perfectly good motor just because a thread has failed. But yeah, I get the time constrains. If I were you I’d just visit my local home improvement store, because hill climb on a single motor is not going to be fun.
