Because I live in Europe, it’s just as expensive for me (240€) to order either 2 6355 motors for from electricboardsolutions.com, or 2 6380 motors from (free shipping because it’s over 300USD with TB trucks). I plan on getting my mounts from electricboardsolutions, because then I can get a pulley cover, which seems like a must, otherwise I could get the same motors from diyelectric + their mounts to make the price go over 300$.
So, my question is: which option of the two should I go for? The pros of the dual 6355 setup is that I could use Calliber trucks instead of TB ones and save some weight + improve looks, and the pros of the dual 6380 is of course more torque – I weigh 80kg (175pounds), and want to be able to get up some pretty steep hills. The downside however, if I understand correctly, is that to drive the dual 6380s to their max potential (2x4000W) I’d need like what, a 12s5p battery? I don’t need that kind of range! (Also, that’s mighty expensive!)
Which option should I go for? Perhaps dual 6355 is enough for getting up hills? Thanks in advance!
