This will be my first build which I think is worth doing a build thread. My goal is to have a plush ride with hopefully min. 30 miles 45km of range good torque and topspeed around 26-30 mi/h 45-50km/h. But topspeed is not my main concern. My previous builds where always with Hubmotors for stealthy reasons. But as most of you know there are not many good choices on the market right now. I desperately wanted @Hummie 's hubs but somehow always had no spare cash or missed the buying window when they were available. So after trying Maytech hubs, which are not really satisfying, generic Chinese hubs, which are better but still lacking and the Enertion hubs, which are more powerful and comfortable but reduce the range of my battery by 50% compared to the other motors, I decided to build a new board around the Nano gear drives.
Deck is the Jet Banshee 38" Trucks are E-Caliber from @okp with 44° baseplate in the rear and normal 50° Caliber II front. Thanks again for the very reasonable price and shipping! Dual Nano gear drive from @3DServisas Dual ESCapes from @stewii might use my Unity not decided jet. 10S5P 30Q double stack battery pack Selfmade fiberglass enclosure Dual 6355 190KV motors from Flipsky, they will be exchanged with better motors after I have settled on motor size and KV. 110mm really big wheels from @torqueboards
Now some pictures from the first progress. The next days will be warmer that I can actually build my enclosure.
First mockup to choose the right length for the Kicktail. Checking for enough clearance for the motors. Enclosure mold mockup. Sealing with Silicon for smooth corners. Extension for the wires After smoothening
I really look forward to suggestions, advise and your insights. Thanks for reading!
