So literally JUST received my 10s5p kit from DIY eboards… and right out of the box i noticed some shit… i payed for the 10s5p kit and 6 x extra belts ( or 3 pair ). Once i opened the box to inspect everything i noticed i was only given 2 spare belts. KEEP IN MIND, they advertise this product coming with 2 extrra belts in the box. So first issue: missing 6 x spare belts. Secondly, before even turning the board on, I went to tighten some nuts and bolts under the board as everyone had told EVERYONE to do… 4 of the nuts just spin freely… not able to loosen, or tighten. 2nd issue: stripped bolts. After these two DEMORALIZING issues were spotted… i was feeling pretty fking bummed out. But alas, i turned the board and remote on to pair them and see how she goes. Turned on no issues than i add some throttle just to try it out ( the board is on my lap). I get some nasty nasty fking noises coming from of the motorized wheels. Major resistance from what seems to be belt rubbing on the wheels pulley ( the one that plugs into the actual wheel), and nasty noises. i took a couple vids with my phone just to share and get an idea what i should do. I mean… im so bummed boiz… i waited for evvvvz for some stuff that one, dont work properly, and two, didnt even come in ( AND I PAID) anyways… pretty rattled. I sent off emails to the diyeboard lads a few min ago, but there is a pretty dirty time difference… so i guess ill just have to wait.
Any tips / advice?
Side note: i DID already check to see if the wheel’s nuts were too tight, and they are not. but definetly replacing bearings. these spin for almost 3 seconds and come to slow stop.
side note 2: i have been longboarding and skateboarding for almost 10 years. Just to clear up any misconceptions about wether or not i have a clue as to what im doing.
