I went for a quick ride on my board last night and got dumped after a curb nudge. Thankfully, I was only going about 3-4 mph, so I didn’t fall.
I’m seeking some help to sort this problem out. Thanks in advance.
My build: VESC 84v
-TFL Varails, Straight Rail Config.
-Makers PEV Little FOCer 3.1, Flowglider Controller Box
-Fungineers Superflux V1
-The Board Garage 84v Battery
My build only has approximately 100 easy miles. I’ve treated this board nicely, and only do the occasional curb nudge and curb drop with it.
The issue: After a curb nudge and during the curb drop, my board lost all torque and just freewheeled while the motor made loud crunching sounds and strong shaking. I had to carry the board home, all 36lbs of it.
The motor spins when off the ground, but if you apply any friction to it, it just crunches and shakes.

Any ideas where I should start troubleshooting?
This is what I plan to do in about an hour, unless someone in here chimes in with something different.
-Redo Motor Wizard/Config. and recheck Superflux motor.
-Replace motor with a Hypercore motor, run Motor Wizard, and recheck.
Could this be a hall sensor issue?
Should I take a peak at the stator?
Any and all comments, suggestions, ideas welcomed.
