Awesome video. Nice job. Based on your closing comments I get the impression you were you disappointed with the 16S performance. Am I misinterpreting your tone/wording?

Thank you! No I really do like the KS16S but was hoping it had a bit more torque. That's ok as I will not be climbing hills of that size grade very often. :)

Looking forward to seeing any ACM temp data that you got. With those hills you should have been able to really drive the temperature up high.

BTW, am I correct in surmising that you like to run your wheels on the lower pressure end? At least that's how it looks from the video. I'm not judging, just curious :)

A nice data graph was produced! The temperature definitely spiked! What probe do you think topped out....motor wires coming out of the axle or the bullet connector? I just finished the other video and the graph. The 30% hill grade was a bear.

40 psi is my average. A few wheels might have been low. What psi do you average?

I'm sticking with my original prediction - that the wires would be hotter near the connectors than what's coming out of the axle.

When I fill my tires I top them up to the max specified on the side of the tire. 45psi for the ACM and MSuper, 65psi for the KS14C.  This is a very personal choice due to how it affects the ride.

I purchase one of those nice little electric pumps with a digital gauge that a member commented on earlier. I filled the tires a few weeks ago but I should have checked the pressure today.

Maybe that is a result of the 67v system. All the other wheels (excluding the Luffy) are 84v right?

Corrected 64v to 67v

Wonderful! That was a lot of effort, especially the filming (attempts - bad drone!).

The ACM is the only 84v wheel. All of the others are 64v.  Here is a little chart I threw together.

Thanks buddy! Actually the filming was not that bad. Yes It would be easier to have a second person but the tripod worked out great even with the slight wind sway. I just left the camera on the top of the hill until I was done filming.

The drone just kept loosing me. It did not like me turning around.  It was able to follow me easily on the oval track a few weeks back.

The V8 is 84v. 99% sure the  V5f+ is too.

Edit: confirmed V5f is 84v on ewheels.com

You are correct sir! I checked the chargers and they are 84v. I had this mindset that they both were 67v. New Chart.:)
