Not really. I changed the halls and it improved, but it will still lose sync from a dead start up an incline. I live with it..

Re: 24S BMS Help please.

OK, I checked what I think are the output mosfets (the ones on the alum heat sink parallel to the charging mosfet alum hat sink) I probed the same leg (the gate) and I have 13.3v. Is this making sense?

no problem, i should be working on my remodeling too. you can measure the voltage on the gate of the charging mosfet where it is now, the gate is the leg on the left side. if it is off that will help to know first too. when i was a kid, i worked in the summer on the road crew for my dad's lumber co...
