So i’m currently in the process of designing and manufacturing my first E-Board and have just finished the drivetrain! I have made the motor mounting holes elongated so that the belt can be tensioned, however, i’m not sure how tight my belt should be. Is there a general rule of thumb? Does the type of belt/ quality of the belt factor into how tight it should be?
The belt i’m using is a ‘Gates 280 5MGT’ (supposedly the best quality belt).
Thank you in advance for any replies and sorry if this question has already been answered in a similar topic!
