If your catagory is an eboard build, please abide by the following requested title format:

In order to make the “E-board Builds” category really easy to search & locate specific builds we are asking that you change your title to something descriptive that better expresses the makeup of your build.

Most of the new build threads tend to end up with a name such as "new- noob - noobie - beginner - first - build - help - newb" this becomes hard to keep track of.

I would like to see each build thread with a descriptive title, such as; Project Name | Deck Name | Trucks | Motor type | Mounting method | Voltage/Battery | ESC

Example The Samurai | Custom Deck | Paris Trucks | R-SPEC | Custom Mount | 10S | VESCNavigating the tool bar!

Is it now the Message button? I don’t see new topic and have read at least 10 hours worth of content. @cmatson

Shouldn’t have changed. I’m still seeing the new post button on the main page.

ohh gotchya i was looking on my profile page rather than the main page. Thanks!! @rpn314

I don’t know if its because I am a new user but I have no option to create a new post…

Thank You, wanted to post about a setup I was planning on putting together to make sure everything would work together… I am new to this so just wanted opinions from the experienced. I see a lot of knowledge in these forums. Thank You for the quick response.

Hello, this is my first post, so please be patient with me.

I have an initial idea of what my longboard build will be. Atm i have already purchased the following:

  • Longboard Deck,
  • Caliber II Longboard Trucks, 50 Degrees.
  • Orangatang Kegel 80mm Wheels.
  • 30 Teeth HDT 5mm Pitch 11mm wide wheel pulley
  • 20 Teeth HDT 5mm Pitch 11mm wide motor pulley. The pulleys have already been drilled and connected to the wheels.

I’d like to create a 10s4p Samsung 30Q battery pack. But im unsure about what type of bms i should buy, if you have any recommendations please provide them, or if you can teach me about how to pick a bms, that would be greatly appreciated. I would like to get dual Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 6354-260kv, and dual vesc. What are your thoughts and comments will be appreciated

@moderators can we split this into a new topic?

@aras_96 Looks pretty good! I would say that if you’re aiming for a 10s battery on a VESC (you didn’t mention what esc you might use, so I’m assuming a bit here), it’s a great combination IMHO, but I would aim for a motor with a lower kv, under 230 would be my recommendation.

HI all,

i just joined today…i don’t have a new topic button available yet…so posting it here…

i bought the swagtron swagboard for 200 bucks on amazon a week ago…i never skateboarded before…i started learning skateboard 2 weeks before …just for fun riding around neighbourhood…never planning to go to skatepark or do tricks…i am little older for that…28…i am an average with respect to activity scale…i have been snowboarding for 3 seasons now…i would say i am an intermediate now in snowboarding.

the reason why i explain those here is …i am scared to go fast downhill on skateboard…i know it is just mental thing…but i have been using the brake option on the swagboard remote a lot when going downhill…because i am scared the board would wobble or i may not be able to turn it as fast as it has to go past the corner.

i know i just have to spend more time with the board…my third day was much better than the first day…but i am just amazed at the videos form youtube…where people stop on downhill with famous boards like boosted , evolve and starting to think may be those boards would help me better?

Hi, I have been reading the forum for the last 5 months but I have only just finished my esk8 build and just created an account. Do you know how long it takes before I can post the build log? Thanks.
