I’ve been lurking for quite some time, reading until I’ve got enough funds for a decent build. I want to build an “Evolve” type board - can switch between AT pneumatic tires and ABECs. Budget is $1500, pushing $2000 when/if needed.
TRUCKS: Surf Rodz RKP 200mm + 70 x 10mm axles / TB 218mm / I could wait for @Brad’s | Other suggestions and why
WHEELS: ABEC 107s / Evolve AT Kit / Trampa Superstar Hubs 6.5 Urban Treads / I really don’t know the compatibility of these wheels with my truck options with surf rodz being my 1st pick so please educate me
MOTORS: Dual 190kv 6374s - I’m not sure where to source them yet so open for suggestions
ESC: FOCbox or ESCape
BATTERY: 30Q 10S3P / 30Q 12S3P
MOUNTS: Would depend which truck is best among my options
As you can see, there’s still a lot to fill. If you have any suggestions or advice, I’m all ears. I’m really hoping to get a lot of feedback from you guys. THANKS!
For decks you (maybe) should consider this new one I got . Very similar with the Freeride DT 38" but at 39" and without the micro drop.
Actually, giving your choice of trucks, it might not work with AT wheels … they might be too close or maybe even touch the edge (Evolve trucks extend outwards and you get a longer wheelbase because of that).
@egzplicit whats the length of the evolve trucks from axle to axle? What length should a truck be top be able to accommodate AT wheels comfortably and not worry about wheel bites or any other clearances?
