Congrats on the wedding! But why are you posting about lipo when you should be on your honeymoon
Hopefully your wife doesn't start eating into your ebike and project time, mine seems to think this is perfectly acceptable...
What will your top speed on 18S be ? I get around 70km/hr on a GM1000w motor so on a 5303 it should be stupidly fast!

But thats at nominal 66v at the end of the pack so I can safely say it should hold the 45mph/70kph ish in the flats maybe a little more for the first few miles with a fully charged pack

I tried again. It still felt rough. I coast back home and check everything. The throttle is has no response. I think a mosfet shorted. There is no cogging when the controller is plugged into the motor. I dont think i was pushing it hard at all. This happened pretty much on a cold stat. Controller was still cool. I wasnt on the bike for 30 seconds and felt strong and fine. Im was at 44v.

All of the connectors looked fine at a glance but if you look closer the connectors were sunkern/melted into their housing. Im certainly thinking of soldering with no disconnects. its just a pain in the ass to redo connections over and over again. if you need to take the controller off the bike for some reason. I need to do phase wire upgrade anyways. I just dont wanna buy the teflon or silicone wire. I accept scrap donations. =P
Im also having this problem with the wires coming out of my controller. When I recrimped my connectors these wires were fused together. I had to peel them apart like twizzlers. I just cut all of mine off shorter past the damaged section and recrimped new ends. None of my other phase wires have this melting insulation issue. The yellow connector shows how my connector failed. The Anderson contact sunk into the connector which pulls it away from the contact thats plugged into it.
As a temporary solution im going to get some heat shrink and cover the wires coming out of the controller so they dont fuse together. I also left the wires out in the open instead of bundled in the Crystalyte velco sleeve I have.
