After lots of research that’s what I put together. What are your thoughts on this?
As I live in a city with very irregular geography with lots of ups and downs on my way to work, while selecting the components I aimed to achieve high torque with a 380KV Brushless motor. I know you guys usually recommend bellow 300kv, but to compensate high KV I used small motor pulley to achieve high torque with max speed bellow 48km/h. Here’s the full build:
Motor: Hobbyking NTM Prop Drive 50-60 Series 380KV / 2665W / Max current: 90A – USD 45,85
Motor Mount: Torque Boards v4 Motor Mount (ONLY) – USD 32,89
Motor Pulley: 10 Teeth Belt Pulley – USD 1,25 (Not necessarily this one, I can get a custom 10 Teeth. The important thing is to remain at 10T, otherwise max speed will surpass 45km/h)
Battery: Pack LG INR18650-HG2 Cells 8S5P – USD 280,00
5A discharge BMS/PCM for 8S 28.8V 29.6V Li-ion, 432Wh. To bypass BMS low discharge, I will connect positive and negative wires going to your ESC straight to the battery instead of through the BMS.
ESC: Torque Boards VESC BLDC Speed Controller – USD 100,00
Trucks: From Amazon Caliber II Fifty Caliber 10"/50 Degrees Blackout Trucks – USD 39,95
Caliber Clamp: Torque Boards v4 Caliber Clamp (ONLY) – USD 32,50
Wheels: Orangatang Kegel 80mm 80a Wheels From Amazon – USD 60,00
Bearings: Bones Bearings Reds Bearings From Amazon – USD 12,96
Deck: Bamboo Skateboards – USD 56,00
Pulley Kit: Torque Boards 36T KEGEL Pulley Combo Kit – USD 49,99
Total: 758,19 USD
