i moded my old axles to 47mm, and my 6x2 fit perfectly and 218TB have the same, weird.


#505

dude, wrong topic and also who cares? if you are willing to pay, some people just want to ride and don’t care about $$$


#506

Well… WIth only speed rings I get this:

With the spacer, wheel, speed ring, I get not enough thread at the end to engage the NyLock:

I am quite sure they are legit TB trucks. :slight_smile:


#507

ok, must be me, i did it with a flex so 47mm is probably wrong and have more like 42mm, which would fit perfectly.


#508

To be fair I probably would have said the same thing to you…

But also how is this relevant at all {Stay in your LANE}


#509

I use two 2mm shims(fancy washers). One next to the aluminum part of the trucks and one just before the start of the threads.


#510

After 6 hours of playing around I have managed to make everything fit. I think the spacers should be a little bit, like 1mm lower. :smiley:

Yes, the tires are backwards. Was more happy with the outcome, so I didn’t even care about the tire orientation. :smiley:

I had to use ~9mm of total shimming to make things tolerable. :smiley:


#511

Wow, that’s alot. I def used just 4mm. I wonder if they have changed the design a bit. Moved the bearings closer together.

From you pic that you posted a day ago, it seems that you are have an extra of 3mm space.

Where’s the belt?


#512

i can confirm that the spacer used have variation of 0.1mm, which is quite alot.


#513

I presume it’s because of dual 6374 motors. Requires quite a wheel offset to make motors fit on the trucks. Atm the distances are gut wrenching. Wheel to mount distance is 1mm. Between motors it’s also 1-2mm.

Belts are not put on yet.


#514


I use 6374 too, without any issue. With 15mm belt.

Edit: BTW, I think I have those clearances too.


#515

I think your motor cans are shorter. Looks like TB motors.


#516

Did you had to shave your TB trucks to fit wheels ?
About to do a hummie build these 6” wheels and 107mm Superfly wheels as wheel. Just wondering will those be a problem before I get to it


#517

Nope. With TB218 trucks they leave about 3mm extra shaft length when using the standard skateboard washers on each side. So I had to use 2mm shims on both sides. Does that answer your question?
