Re: Best high current connector

I like XT150's. Easy to disconnect and pretty easy to solder if you have a decent iron.

Re: Tangent Giant DH Revival Build

Thanks for the feedback everyone Yep. Your cog is small and, -check chain line alignment -check for proper chain tensioner on the rear. Chain alignment is good. 1/8" single speed chain is matched to Chris King 1/8" rear cog. Front chainring is a 36t Raceface N/W 104 bcd. It's a little slop...

Re: Tangent Giant DH Revival Build

Success! Got the bike cobbled together with the stand alone throttle circuit. CA removed for now. Finally got the full power from the 3210! Excuse the mess of wiring. Everything needs tidying up but this was just for a quick test run to see if it would work. Changes included; 1. CC HV160 ESC (upgrad...

Re: Tangent Giant DH Revival Build

Update; Making slow but steady progress. I decided the best way to move forward would be to eliminate as many variables as possible. Starting with the throttle. Following in Matt Shumaker's footsteps https://youtu.be/C7Q9MAUlKX8, I bought an Astro 105 servo tester, de-soldered the 10k pot, and wired...

Re: Need Advice for High Powered Mid-Drive

Update; My current goal is to measure the Kv of the motor and compare the 5T specs of the 3210 from astroflight.com to figure out how many turns this motor is. I'm planning to use the "drill method" to determine Kv... https://youtu.be/JD1gplvhGrc So in order to get direct access to the mot...

Re: Need Advice for High Powered Mid-Drive

Thank you very much Ham & briangv99, this is great info. Awesome to get some feedback from some fellow Tangent owners. On the advice of MadRhino and BrunoPOWEEER I pre-ordered the Nucular 12F but it's going to take a while to get in and I want to do some testing and learning about this motor. Ma...

Re: Need Advice for High Powered Mid-Drive

After much deliberation I have decided to stick with the 3210 Tangent setup and see if I can get it running up to it's full potential. I think this motor should have the guts to achieve my goals for this bike. With that being said, I've been doing a ton of research but I'm still struggling to find s...

Re: Need Advice for High Powered Mid-Drive

Thanks MadRhino & Markz for the input. I'm trying to figure out what controller would work on the 3210 other than the Castle which I'm already pushing the limits of by running 14s, as well as the motor for that matter... If I'm going to buy a new controller I would like to get one that will work...

Tangent Giant DH Revival Build

Hello ES, I am a new member here, looking for advice on how to get the best off-road performance out of my 2005 Giant Team DH I bought this bike barely used with a Tangent Ascent 3210 (3kw) preinstalled. It has been sitting dormant for around a year while I designed and 3d printed a battery mounting...
