Hello guys! I build my first electric skateboard from an APOLLO Longboard and run into some issues… my deck is way to low for mounting the 63 Motor.
I use the 3d printed version from @solidgeek of the motor mound and modified it a little bit… with a bit too much flow and and a bit too hot, it turns out as a very stable motor mount! Thanks for that! BUT I don’t have enough space under my board for the big motor as u can see in the pictures… only 5mm on top and maybe 8mm on the bottom. I mean… it works nicely… for a few rides then the plastic is broken from the scratches and I have to reprint it.
I don’t want to buy another longboard, so I have two options:
- I just mount the drop though trucks on the bottom suface of my deck instead of the top, what gives me maybe 15mm more space… sounds awesome, do I loos a lot of stability?
- cut off the front and back and swing the motor with the motor mount more up is this ok? Then the it would like this… is it still ok or unsable?
Thanks for your help! nice community here!
