Thanks… that far to complex for my basic knowledge. but thanks for helping me trouble-shooting

Get them repaired or buy new ones. Don’t take this the wrong way, but I’ve never seen someone do that before, so I have no idea what kind of damage was caused.

Also, study more electrical stuff. Understand the way circuits work, so that you can not do this again. This is a rookie mistake, and I kind of want to say you shouldn’t be playing with li-ion batteries if you don’t understand basic shit like series vs. parallel first.

Far from it… I once spent like 45 minutes tearing my hair out trying to boot a computer from a disk. Turns out it was a CD reader, and the disk was a DVD. I felt real dumb after that one.

The only downside so far is wasting money… other than that it’s been a fun journey so far in my very short esk8 experience. the best part came in after joining this community though

Yeah, a common misconception that many new players in the DIY EV game (including myself) have is that it’s cheaper than a bought one. It can be, under certain circumstances, such as if you don’t count the prices of the tools or supplies that you have to acquire, or the cost of all the parts that you might will break along the way.

And if you don’t count the value of your time.

And and and… You get the idea.

shameless bumping my question now that you guys seem to have finished :joy:

anyone got an idea if this is normal?

You’re hearing the mechanical noise that’s the result of the switching noise in the vesc. That’s totally normal.

Think of the motors as very, VERY powerful and specialized speakers that turn instead of vibrate. Except they vibrate a little bit too. That’s what you’re hearing.

it just confused me that i never heard (noticed?) it before on the slightly smaller 6355

It can be affected by many things, such as the resonance of the different motor, different inductance, different construction, different settings, yadda yadda.
