Hello there everyone,
I’m building an electric longboard currently and I’m following this guide: http://www.instructables.com/id/Electric-Skateboard-v20/
I bought a motor but it’s a bit different than the one that he uses in the guide. It has a lower kv rating (149kv compared to his 280kv) and the shaft is larger on mine. I chose a lower kv motor because where I live there are more hills (South Dakota) and was advised by some that a smoother acceleration is worth it. I already fabricated the motor mount shown in the guide (except I didn’t drill the motor mount holes yet). Now the only thing I need to do is buy the correct pulleys and belt. I’m not very experienced with any of this so I decided to come here for some advice.
The stuff I’m currently looking to purchase:
Note: This big pulley is the same one he uses in the guide. I want to get the same one so that it fit’s into my longboard wheel as shown in the guide.
Belt: According to my calculations, this is that should work with this set up although I’m not sure if my calculations are correct.
But most likely the second option as I’m getting the other parts from that site so I may as well just get them all together for one shipping cost from one site.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Will this work?
