  1. Airflow is of no consequence.The only solution would be to design a board with components with greater ampacity ratings.I can't fault Gotway.I push the upper tolerances when I climb steep hills and so does everyone who rides like that.Jason is already shipping new board!
  2. One or more of the mosfet leads melted which may or may not fry other board components.Although the MSX mosfets are more robust than previous versions,they still have a fail point which was exceeded.Had I or Frank been on smaller diameter wheels such as a Nikola,we might have missed the fail point and made it up the hill.
  3. Heat is a product of the resistance to current flow(amps).Too much current flow through the Mosfet literally melts the metal leads of the mosfet(s).So yes,heat does "kill the structure",but the current creates the heat.So too much current = too much heat=melted mosfet=fried board.
  4. It isn't an overheat issue,it's an over amp issue.My wheel was modded to be supercooled by me due to my last board failure(double the area space of heat sink plus vents and ducted air fan) and my temp never reached 60C. on that hill and still failed.
  5. Just a regular Dewalt 20v grinder with a 7 1/4 in. metal cut off blade.I carry them on my service trucks because I frequently have to cut off electric meter locking rings to disconnect power during service calls.It's the ultimate "master key".
  6. I just fabbed one yesterday using a grinder in about 2 minutes.So if you or anyone else wants to send me some sockets, I'll fab them and then give them to @Marty Backe at this Saturdays Griffith Park ride and he can distribute them to Monster riders as needed.
