Hi Kepler, i tried reaching out to you but i know its a crazy time and you probably don't have any more of these at the moment so for the time being i am going to do a bit of jury rigging my own fixed system just so i can do a bit of test and tune until these become available again...mainly to familiarize myself with the vesc system and sort out throttle and or pas system

If i want to temporarily use some existing 13s shark packs i have, do you think 190kv motors would work best? looks like the flipsky mini vesc is safe up to 13s, on all the motors i have looked at the high range is listed at 12s...i am not too familiar with these RC motors but i am assuming it should not be a huge deal? thanks in advance

Take a look at 2 Speed Xiongda hubmotor. It's not a weight weenie, but 2 speed is a plus.
Don't expect from life to be easy and then it will be.

thanks for the recommendation, i was actually looking at those for a different build but have a few projects in mind that i am reluctant to file the dropouts on as well as being in flat tire central here and not wanting to get into different tires, tubes etc. I built a family hauler last year that my wife rode along with a trailer filled two kids and strapped with beach gear etc, probably close to 400 lbs fully loaded. i just used a cheap 9c clone DD on it and it was fine but lacked the pull down low and seemed to just be coming alive at unsafe child trailer-ing speeds. that will be getting the xd
