From one side i want to keep these alive and working. But I worried about debris and water(theoretically i can add drainage hole - as this point i feel like excessive holes would not be a problem) that could stuck inside. Really don’t know what to do. So im asking for thoughts on this resolution. Is it worth it, or its better to lower amps to prevent overheating and that’s it? Option to buy other motors is too expensive so far for me
and you are experiencing thermal throttling or the like ? My advice would be if it works for you so far it don’t fix it,
on the other hand if it realy is an issue I’d say try it, those hubs are so infamous I don’t think it could be any worse
Well, my main intension is po prolong urethane sleevs as much as possible. Replacements for them is pretty much non existant. Thay degrate faster on high tempretures. And also thermal trottling is a thing for me as well. Unnoying but i can live with it. Urethane thing bothers me more. But i really want to avoid is to damage as esc if water will make to motor and short it. Thank a lot for reply. If not sleeve thing i would live with it untill i cant and then will go with holes thing as you say. On the itger way maybe go diy sleeves… Hmm.
If you dunk the stator in conformal coating (probs wanna use silicone where the wires leave so it doesn’t crack) it will be waterproof, if you add some mesh screens to keep the chunks out that would damage the windings I think it would be okay, but the road grit and water will not be good for the bearings so expect to pull them at some point (might want to get some stainless steel double sealed in advance)
well if he acualy made a good mold and the issue was only pouring urethane, I’m sure someone could make it work
Is there still enough person still using those hubs to makes it interesting though, I doubt it
If it was a 1:1 mold to the raptor hub sleeve, then it’s a wiiide hub sleeve, probably be able to add in a kegel or abec core if decided not to produce any more raptor sleeves, but idk I’m spitballing rn
