Hello everybody I’m new here, great work with the community, without this place everything would be so much harder. It gives me confidence to start my own build.
So I haven’t bought anything yet, I’ve been researching for a week now. Don’t want to blow my cash on crap. But I’m also on a tight budget.
If I had a lot of money I’d go for an escape immediately! The design is fucking sweet. And looks like it would survive some abuse. But since I’m a poor kid is it okay to save some money and go for this esc by aps?
And what do you think about 10s2p on a single 190-200kv motor? Will this give enough range/speed/torque? Was thinking of going for this 30q pack. But read somewhere on this forum you couldn’t draw enough amps on 2p. A bit pricey though. Anybody know some better EU vendors? (Don’t have a spot welder or battery schematics knowledge). Don’t need the BMS prolly gonna go for balance charger. But I don’t want lipos, I’m not carefull enough, like to charge things overnight, etc. The things just seem to volatile to put on a skateboard…
On a different note. I don’t like the longboards without kicktails they are a pain to steer properly even at pushing speed. I’ve been skating pools for a long time. So I was thinking about going for a 32" old school fish deck. Will this be enough space to fit everything? Or can I fit everything on a regular deck?
Talking about steerability, i would like to go for a dual rear, but don’t have the cash yet. So on a single rear how is steering? To me it seems if only one wheel is powered it would ride crooked. Might be wrong though.
Also how do the builds hold up over time? How long till stuff starts breaking? I skate to destroy and want to push the build to the limit. Fly over speed bumps, pop off curbs, and do some airs in the park. Probably I’ll break first, skate life innit…
Last question what about loose trucks? I love to just keep the trucks as they are -screw at top of kingpin no thread visible- and let them loosen up over time. What about speed wobble? Can I keep em loose? I once got toed behind a car at 50 kph and had to drop the rope immediately or I was gonna fall.
Thanks for making it this far, a lot of questions I know but didn’t want to make six different threads. If you would be so kind to answer any or all of these questions I would be very gratefull. Apologies if it’s in the wrong category I started with one question, but once I started writing… -666-
