Razor mx500 (mildly modded)
That's pretty cool, I'll have to check those out
Yes, It shouldnt get that hot. I mean it will with your setup, but dont let it get that hot. You can run it hard for 10 minutes or so but then run it at slower speeds for a while. Another thing you can do is go for Less top speed and more torque, swap the front sprocket down to a 10 teeth. It'll help keep things cooler but you will sacrifice top speedThat scooter is pretty slick! Honestly I'm pretty surprised that motor hasn't cooked itself yet but hey who knows, maybe it's a decent little thing and takes it like a champ! One thing I noticed about my 36v 800w motor is that on hot days it tends to get really hot with like 15 minutes of wide open throttle... to a level where you can't touch it longer than a few seconds, should I be concerned? I don't want to short the motor out. Speed controller seems to stay cool so that's a plus.
Ah okay that explains it. I was just browsing stuff and noticed that they seemed to be specific about differentiation between brushed and brushless controllers and I wasn't sure what made them so different from each other and why I hadn't heard of someone running a brushless motor with the stock controller or something.Short answer, 2 wire brushed vs 3 wire brushless motor. They also run it to totally different RPMs and I believe amps as well
I'm definitely interested in anything that can help!If you need a 48v 120mm fan for that let me know I will get you one from work we have massive amounts of used ones stacking up.
It's just driving me nuts knowing you're riding that thing around without proper cooling...
