So this is gonna be my first build after my evolve upgrade which is on hold right now cause I’m waiting on a repair FSESC from Flipsky. I felt Black Friday would be an excellent time to start my first real build cause of all the discount goodness going around. Please feel free to critique the shit out of this setup.
TB Trucks will be sold as I just purchased a set op Surf Rodz RKP.
Below a build order list with some accurate, some guesstimated and some way-off prices.
I’d get belts, motor pulley, wheels and mounts from there while you’re at it, all in sale:
Note: I personally don’t like those mounts but they work. These from eskating are sexy but pricey compared to what you are looking at now. Perhaps ask on the forum for mounts though because there’s a load of people switching away from caliber profile trucks and mounts are everywhere. Hell I have a set of these eskating ones in a box brand new, a set of street wing ones unused and some other misc ones. I’m just one example: https://eskating.eu/product/electric-skateboard-motor-mount-aluminium-carbon-pro-2x/
I’d get a remote that works (Nano X is a winning remote reskinned, search the forums and you will find it’s problematic to say the least) - Mini RC is flawless. Maytech if you like a thumb control.
Bearings from Amazon, super redz perhaps? Much better deals and free delivery.
So I ordered the Flipsky 6.6 dual because it’s based on 6.6 and ppl have generally had favorable reviews. Besides, when the one I ordered for my evolve upgrade turned out faulty, they sent me a new one immediately.
The biggest upgrade is that I just purchased a set of RKP trucks!
Gonna order @psychotiller’s motor mounts to go with them :).
