So finally getting into the building of the board.
I got my inspiration from the A2ESK8 electric skateboard.
It is a cheap skateboard deck which is perfectly stiff for my weight (175lb/80kg).
Mounted the trucks on the kicks.
I’m using caliber trucks, and 83mm clone flywheels.
Using the DIYElectricSkateboard motor mount v4. I’ll start with 6s, i know it’ll be slow. I’ll later upgrade either to 12s or but another higher kv motor.
I have a question, my brother sawed off the motor shaft for a previous mountainboard, which left me with a shorter shaft. I don’t think it’ll be a problem since 2 of 4 of the set screws touch the shaft perfectly. The other 2 also but are in the middle. I’ll be using threadlock, you guys think i’ll be safe?
I will post more pictures as i go along.
Thanks for reading!
EDIT: Another question, the motor c-clip barely touches the motor mount. Should i grind the motor mount or put some washers in the motor screws? Thanks!!
