Now that I have some work under my belt. Now it’s time to start on my rig. Been working on wifys :biking_man: ride. While :woman: she’s out riding, I can put in some work. I learned a lot and feel a whole lot better on what I want to work with and what and will not work. For the fellows who put in there suggestions, thanks. :ok_hand: Y’all were a very great help.

Went with the XeRun SCT Pro instead. Saving the VESC and EzRun MAX6 160a for my other setups.




is that the infamous IKEA box? I swear they are trying to get into the DIY esk8 market, but slyly disguising their products as kitchen wares.


Yes it is. I think I might need to glass it over. Was thinking bout laying maybe carbon fiber.


Will definitely follow. Great deck and looks like it’ll be a killer setup. Which are you doing - the EZRun Max6 or VESC? I see both so curious which you go with? I personally prefer the VESC to my EZRun 150a (older 6s model) - but didn’t finish tweaking settings to be apples:apples w/ VESC.

I’d love to see the Ikea box glassed - those things are ridiculously well suited to esk8! I need to grab a pair and try one out! (there’s an IKEA like 10min down the hill from home. I just hate going in there… always a zoo.)

I’d suggest you dial in your bushings for your weight if you haven’t done so already. Makes a huge difference.

Good luck!

I’ve used and comfortable with the hobbywing ESC’s. Not so much with VESC’s. So fear :fearful: blowing it out. What can I do :yum: to make sure I don’t burn the VESC’s? :sparkler:

hehehe - different strokes for different folks!

I have successfully killed a few VESC’s now. I found bench testing them that if you hard start/stop them - it’s easy to fry the DRV chip. So i don’t do that now. I was troubleshooting a couple errors, which i fixed by adjusting values, but killed the DRV testing.

What i’d recommend on a VESC setup is - don’t go for 12s. I usually do 8s on mine and have had zero issues. I might build the next on 9s (3x3s), with 12s option for uber-power runs occasionally. be gentle when bench testing w/o a load on the board. I have 4 or 5 VESCs now - 4.7/4.8 and one dead (bought used and already dead) 4.11.

Hook up to lab power supply or low amp 3s battery ( think i use an old traxxas 1300mAh) to program and do motor detection, then once configured swap to full size batts.

Ultimately i got a couple spare DRV chips from Mouser (about $6 ea) and will repair the one currently dead and have a few spares just in case. I helped repair the two i killed, but haven’t done a repair by myself yet.

Good luck man!!


great build so far, subbed!

:ok_hand: Thanks. I’m good with the machanics. But I might need help when i start building :battery: battery packs. Still trying to rap my mind around the concept. Been putting together diagrams and cell builds. Definitely looking towards 18650 cells and BMS management. My third build will definitely be built on that concept with a Carbon Fiber glassed over board and glassed over enclosure. Already have the board and might use my VESC on that build, very slim and streamlined. Ordered 207/105 resin and a few rolls of 200g carbon fiber. Also in the works. I have 3 other boards I will be working on. Not totally sure what the final builds will be. But I do know one will be an all-terrain. So that’s where I am at this :hourglass_flowing_sand: time.

Here is a sneak peak of the CF build. Most likely the VESC will go with this board.

This is an over view of what is to come up. So I’m processing what I might do.


every one of those looks awesome
