Just wondering if anyone has tried doing a quad belt-drive board? Is it because 4 belt drives would consume too much power and generate too much torque?
because it is not necessary, and too heavy in my opinion, There are mtb with 4 geared motors but heaven seen belts yet?
ive only see one board with awd and thats the carvon evo but i think it uses hub motors. also only seen dual diagonal with belts.maybe lack of clearance or room would be why.
@longhairedboy has built one.
@psychotiller has built an AWD belted board. It’s a 10s 5p. It was getting better mileage than my dual 10s 4p board while riding off-road. Once you ride it you’ll feel it’s necessary.
This pretty much, proves everything you guys think (too heavy, too much drag, lack of clearance, and that there aren’t any )
What the hell took you so long?
Any details? First one I have seen, pretty impressive…
All the details are there. Click the links.
Yes, I did click the link. Just wondering if you had any details on pros and cons of the build. Thank you for sharing.
Pros-BAD ASS! Cons-Expensive
you guys want to see over kill but bad ass http://esk8builds.com/photo/view/?id=86 never forgotten
Really nice. Thx.
that’s bigboytoys board
I know… his boards were godlike … "never forgotten " @GrecoMan
Can you give a rough estimate about the cost to build such a board?
I’ve got $2,300 in that one, counting only materials that will make it to final assembly.
Thank you. It is good to know. Really great board, was expecting $3K.
i’ve beuilt enough of them to know they’re utterly pointless.
All scenarios can benefit from dual drive, either dual diagonal or dual rear, or even dual front.
Only drag racing or hauling a fuckton of weight warrant all wheel drive.
They’re not as efficient, don’t deliver enough “moar power” to justify literally doubling the cost of the build, and only add a tiny amount of top end while consuming more battery basically all the time.
