i have a viper kit and i want to improve its pushing capabilities. Im using a 12v 30:1 motor.
Any advice on how i could increase its torque and speed?
I have no idea about what a "viper kit" is (hint: linking makes it easier to help), but there's not that many options...
- Cut away excess material to reduce weight (not knowing your kit, I don't know how much it can be reduced).
- Add an extra motor.
- Push the motor you have to a slightly higher voltage, like 15V and take temperature measurements on the motor housing each ~5minutes when testing it. If it gets above 40°C (around the max. for an average motor), back down on voltage and vv.
Problem is that you want to increase both torque and speed, otherwise you could just change the total gearing (motor to pavement), which could be as simple as changing the tyre size (up for speed, down for torque).
If you link to the kit and/or post some sharp focused photos of it from several angles, it may be possible to be more specific.
