I can't believe how mild it is this year compared to last year. No problem e-biking this winter so far!
The last 3 winters were un Irish like cold, now we are back to Atlantic weather.
I was thinking of drilling the covers but the pie doesn't get hot on anything only the 16% I went up. And it's much too wet here for it to be reliable, unless I tried spraying it with the protective paint.
If you wire it up with 12G alpha eco wire you should have enough room for temp sensor wires. You should really do that because I have a feeling your climb will be longer than mine. The alpha insulation is really thin!
Bogging down is the problem and on 16S (controller set to 120%) max speed on level ground about 35 mph, at 16% 13 mph so a hell of a lot of power was being converted to heat!
I wonder if you ran 80 volts through it ? I know it's more watts but the higher voltage makes it spin faster keeping it more in the efficiency zone, Other thing is back off the current if increasing the voltage ?
But currently My controller settings are 60 battery and 140 amp phase, I don't know how high you can turn up the phase on the 12 fet? I know I'm maxed out at 60 battery unless I beef it up! But it accelerates very fast. I will fix the halls eventually to give it the extra speed.
