So I recently finished high school and am taking a gap year instead of heading straight to university (I needed the break). I need something to do whilst I am not working and I always envied YouTubers with their electric skateboards, so I decided to build my own. The board will get me out of the house on good days, get me to work and to my girlfriend’s house
My budget is not huge, but luckily thanks to @Funga, I am able to grab some of my parts at a cheaper price and he is located in Australia which is a plus for me. Although they are used, I am hoping they last me a while without any failures. Unfortunately, not all the parts he had were what I wanted so some purchases for new parts had to be made.
Landyachtz Nine Two Five (Used)
Torqueboards 6374 190kV (Used)
Enertion 4.12 VESC (Used)
Torqueboards 12S2P with enclosure (Used)
Mini Remote (Used)
Purple Caliber II Trucks
36T Wheel Pulley and 14T Motor Pulley
DIYes Reverse Mount and Clamp
97mm ABEC Flywheels 75a
I currently have the wheels and trucks that I purchased today. I love the color of the purple trucks and the wheels are huge!
I will be receiving a parcel from DIYes tomorrow or the day after, and should be picking up the rest of the parts from @Funga soon as well.
One thing I am uncertain of, is whether I will lose initial acceleration and torque due to using 97mm wheels. On other builds, I have seen people using 83mm wheels with great acceleration and torque, so hopefully it’s not lacking too much. Any insight would be great.
Will post updates.
