I’m trying to rally my confidence through this post to start my build. I have all the parts and more listed in the title, but am terrified to start the battery build. I don’t want to blow shit up and screw this esk8 thing up for everyone else. I’ve been reading and learning a lot here so below are some of the resources, parts, and issues I’ve read/bought/struggling about.
I’m really glad I was able to inspire people around the world, it makes me truly happy. However, the true inspirations, were the guys that started everything like @okp@whitepony@kaly@nowind those are the gods around here!
This build is gonna be epic, I’m not sure but with two later of cells you will suffer with ground clearance, the weight of the board is gonna hurt your back every time you lift it.
Can’t wait to see the final board. Good vibes to you and your project!
Thank you for the encouragement @Eboosted! You’re right they are “gods” and there are so many great contributors here.
Ground clearance is going to be an issue. I’m timidto go too high as I hear more traditional skates hate, though I have a one wheel so perhaps I’ll be more acquainted with the higher elevation. We’ll see!
Any tips on a slick hot enclosure? I’ve seen yours which I love I just think they’re a little on the shallow side for the two layer.
One thing I don’t have here are properly sized belts. Mine are too short for the reverse mount setup. Anyone know where to find 320mm HTD 12 belts? TD sells them but they are no doubt overpriced. That size is what is recommended, anyone had luck with other sizes?
