The Boltzen risers were perfect for converting this to an esk8. If you didn’t already know, the evo deck has a 15 degree offset in front and rear built into the board. That’s because this board was designed to do 70mph. Clearly we won’t see 70mph… so instead of it driving like a bus with front steering only, the 12 degree risers took it from a 65/35 split to a nice 53/47 split. This should be perfect to be stable but not unnecessarily stable, while still having a really good turning radius.
These pullies I got from @kaly are awesome. They are machined so that you only use a total of 2 bearings per wheel side. Fit was great besides having to shave down spacer a hair on the inside to make it all fit together like a glove. Plenty of room for both pullies to run 20mm wide belt if I see fit.
The completed 13s4p pack. Big thanks to @Deckoz for helping me with the pack. Total length end to end was 20.5". BMS goes in the space left on the 6 cell side. Still working on what enclosure to run as I’ll need a 23" of inside space to work with. There are currently a couple people working on single piece evo enclosures so hopefully I’ll have something soon.
Ahm, the components are rated up to 63V but there is a reason why the gap of ~15V is left. You will blow your capacitors, VESC is handling inductive loads, which in reverse can generate higher voltage than you are inputting
Max voltage vesc can handle is 60v(or 63v if you know precise figure) iirc, seems like a few have done this and not blown up…so it seems, I had toyed with the idea but don’t think it’s really necessary
12s is already tickling the ERPM safety margin with 190kv, no?
Are you all comfortable with the wheels sticking out way beyond the board’s width? One of my most embarrassing and painful longboard falls involved a wheel and a foot. We not flintstoning much on eboards but if I have to footbrake I probably won’t have time to worry if I’m gonna trip on a wheel.
