Key Features

  • very stable and rigid acceleration, but slightly lower constant tiltback angle along with the decreased turn/roll tiltback makes for some really nice high speed carving.
    posi emulation (to take posi emulation off, turn last value in the ‘fault’ section to 500)
  • strong duty cycle tiltback. max speed is about 22-24 depending on terrain. its a positive for me but would probably be a negative to others. I enjoy the security.

*I also filled in the rest of the normally X’d out values for anyone new that is still unsure about where to set them. I know it was a bit nervewracking for me starting out and actually riding stuff I set.

I’d appreciate any feedback on anything that might not look/feel right. But please try the tuning first.

Any chance you could post your configuration itself?

What are u looking for? Motor and app config are both there…

Think they mean the XML files themselves, you can download them from the PC VESCTool app


I wasnt able to edit the post but i commented the xml files

kp mahoney - 1.3

App>tuning> P-21

I’ve got my P set to 24 and it feels pretty good. How much of a difference does changing Mahoney feel?

From what ive been able to test, the kp mahoney value affects the power pressing back up on the nose when your foot goes down. Try p:30 and kp:1.3, then p:21 and kp:1.3. Then try p:30 and kp:2.2 (like most use), then p:21 and kp:2.2 and youll see what i mean.
