I'm really leaning towards a 12T at this point... do you think it would be able to handle ~2kw for 15 minutes straight at 67v30A or am I just going to fry the clutch/gears? I could also run it at 52v40A, but am afraid that might be a bit slow. I climb a fairly serious hill, but want to go as light weight as possible. Thanks for your opinion!
The 12T would be better for lots of steep hills, I'm sure it could handle 2kw for 15 mins no problem. I never had any problems with my 8T with heat with bursts of 3500 watts and high speed cruises at 35-40 mph. Pulling about 2200 watts for 10-12 miles straight! And the windings of my motor still look perfect. The 8T is a monster hill climber so I can only imagine the 12T being much better, and better for slower speeds!
Cell-man is testing a new clutch to be more reliable so I would wait until that is ready, he is also installing a temp sensor maybe by request only.
I think you are much better to ask cell-man about running the 12T at 60 volts. I ran the 8T far above the recommended power levels and killed the clutch and keyway, but I've the new design clutch on the way and a new axle and keyway, so hopefully all will be sorted to be able to handle the power!
