I recently bought a benchwheel dual motor longboard, and like it a lot, but I’m hoping to make some changes to fit it more to my riding style. I’m 122kg and live in a fairly hilly area with bad pavement, so I’d like to fit some slightly bigger, softer wheels so I go flying less frequently. Obviously this is going to mean I take a hit on power, so I was wondering if there’s a way to trade off top speed for torque.
- can I just get two new motors of the same size with lower KV, or is the ESC going to get confused?
- it’s only got a 16A 6S battery - is that going to be enough?
- i get the impression that the board is limited by software (this is a very vague impression, apparently it’s a clone of another skateboard i can’t find the link to right now?) - is there anything that can be done on that side?
Apologies if i missed anything in the archives, just trying to work out what’s possible. Longterm I want to build a new board from scratch but it’d be good to know if there are any quick improvements I can make - I really don’t care about top speed, just want to be able to make it up hills.
