Cheers, yeah was driving me crazy that's for sure!
The controller has me puzzled now though, after modding it and soldering the shunt you would think that it could no longer limit you to around 3kw ?
I might E-mail lyen and ask him.
But all I can say is the acceleration at about 4kw on 24S is really addictive, until that is, the vibration starts, but when you back off the throttle and increase it again slower, rather than hit it wot from start, you can feel the surge of power.
But what I think would be needed is for starters more ah or nanotech, and an 18fet, would probably do the job.
Only thing is while the sheer torque at 5kw is brutal, on 16S, I need it for the woods, I wouldn't be able to climb 30% grades at with only 35 amps, instead of 80!
a 24 fet controller would be needed for such power levels 90 volts x 80 amps would be 7200 watts, I doubt the pie could take that continuously, however it's only the woods that would take it to the limits, and the hills are not too long so probably wouldn't matter.
I would like to take it up the 16% mountain that killed my halls, maybe the higher voltage would be better and not allow it to bog down as much ?
Maybe I will test it, but would need more ah.
