As some of you may have seen I bought most of @Skyart’s range monster build. I got it running with some focbox’s, and widened superstars with phat tires after about 10 miles of my initial test ride I was having a blast still having like 85% of the battery available. However, I started to experience thermal throttling like never before. This is all on me I think, no initial heat sink on those good ol focboxs. I’m not used to having a board with this much range so and I really want this thing to be “I can go anywhere for as long and as hard as I want” call it the Viagra of my collection.
Board’s original thread: The What Could Have Been : Flux|SC 60D|12s9p 50E|3Dservisas stuff
So here are my plans:
4wd via some more 3DS 4.2:1 eco drives (already ordered), dual Unities (already owned in the hoard), and 4 APS 6384’s 170kv (already owned in the hoard).
The biggest heat sink I can fit. Currently I’ve ordered two of these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VMMJCLY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
However I may just wait for the 3DS restock of Unity heat sinks.
Since this is a 12s9p 50E battery I will not be pushing massive amps (sticking to max 90 or 100 batt) which in addition to the heat sinks should help with cooling quite a bit I hope.
I’ll need to route the front motor wires through pack so they will be long and I know that’s not best for cooling so thats my biggest concern atm but at this point I’m just gunna test it and see what happens. I always wanted to try 4WD haha.
This big ol’ heavy boi is about to get even heavier.
