Its been quite some time (like 8-10 months) since I’ve started inquiring about esk8, and now I want to build mine I don’t have a huge budget but still need help deciding what to choose for the board. I am around 170 - 180 lbs.
Weight: I really don’t care much about the weight but I care more about the range
Speed: I don’t really care about it being extremely fast (30 mph) but some good 18 to 20 mph will do
Range: I actually want it to have a long range of about 18 miles will do
Batteries: I don’t know that much about them all I know is that a lot of people recommend the 18650 the ones in the Teslas I believe
Motor: I am trying to decide between the in hub and belt one since I’ve heard that when you run out o charge the belt ones are really hard to push. They have recommended me that for the in hub motors to be around 75 kv and 90mm with swappable urethane and for the belt to be 64something and around 200 kv
VESC or ESC and Controller: this I know nothing of sorts so all help would be appreciated
Board itself: I want the board to be a longboard and the style like the boosted board (downhill style I believe)
I don’t know if I need anything else, if im missing something please tell me.
