Just sent back my Boosted board dual plus V2. Its a nice board but it doesn’t do what I want it to do for the 1700 bucks I spent. The range is terrible. If I am going up a hill I can drain the battery in ten minutes and i want more speed than the 20-22mph it tops out at. I am looking for a board that can do about 30mph with a range of 25 miles. I reached out to the diy electric skateboard guys and they sent me this list of parts for the most high performance build they offer.

As far as the deck goes I want something on the shorter end with an kick tail so its easier to point it in different directions. I really like this one so far and the diy guys said it would work with their new battery enclosure https://www.muirskate.com/longboard/decks/71837/jet-2016-vulcan-kick-35-5-longboard-skateboard-deck-w-grip
