Hey guys and girls (if any)
First of all I would like to say thank you to all you lovely people here, I can’t believe how helpful and nice this community is, it’s truly inspiring and refreshing and I am so glad to be part of this movement.
Ok, enough with the ass kissing already
I’m going to use the board to go to work, and to have some fun as well in my free time. I would like a range of 15-18 km and a top speed of 30 km/h < rough estimates.
This is my plan of attack, feel free to give your opinion/advice
Board : Vanguard 42’’ flex 2 Trucks : Caliber II 10" 44 Degree Two Tone Red Shockpads : Khiro Flat - Height : 1/8" Bearings : Biltin bearings (8x608, ABEC 7) Screws : 29mm gold screws Wheels : 90mm 75a flywheels
Motor : 6355 190kv 2200W Alien Drive Systems Electric longboard DIY kit 63mm motor Belt and pulleys - 15mm 15/36 gearing VESC I will probably get from esk8.de although it’s freaking expensive…I would get one from @chaka but it costs $60 to ship to Europe + eventual import tax, which is a deal breaker for me Transmitter : nano controler which I might exchange for a mini controller, since I heard the later one is more reliable Anti spark : from esk8.de
Battery : I don’t know yet. I would really like to build my own 18650 pack, but I don’t have the money to invest this much in a spot welding station at the moment… Also, I would like to make my own enclosures as well, but again, price would add up like crazy, since I don’t own ANY tools
So, since building my own pack is out of the question atm (maybe do it next year), I was thinking to go with 2 x turningy 5s 5000mah 25c batteries, and get the enclosure for them from the marketplace… this one
I’m currently waiting for the motor and drive kit from APS, Bruno said they’ll be sent in a couple of weeks or so. I still need to buy the battery, the enclosures, VESC, anti spark and various connectors (XT60, some 10 awg cable, soldering station, etc)
So yea, this is basically my plan. What do you peeps think?
I will post more pictures as soon as I make some progress, at the moment I only finished assembling the board
