Hi guys. I’ve been hunting the forum and haven’t quite found anything that answered my question so thought that I’d come here.
I have purchased 2 X Turnigy SK3 6354 260 KV Motors :
And 2 - X CAR Beast ESC’s 150 A ( I would’ve preferred VESC’s but budget yaknow ) :
I have some 6S packs too and was thinking of running 6S to each motor ( that’s the ESC’s max ) and having 2 X 5Ah packs in parallel for more capacity.
I REALLY want the 110mm wheels because the look AWESOME : https://www.amazon.co.uk/Slick-Revolution-Wheels-Electric-Skateboard/dp/B07417D1RC/ref=cts_sp_1_vtp?th=1
I’ve just been struggling to work out gear ratios. I know big wheels and high KV is already quite a lot of speed but would the other motor bring my torque up to a reasonable amount if I have a 15 to 36 tooth reduction for example?
I have had a look on Esk8 calculator and is says with this ratio, I should get a top speed of 30.99 mph. But I need to know if I’d get enough torque to have fun?
And Trucks wise, I’ve been looking at something like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-7-STREETSURFING-LONGBOARD-BOLT-ON-or-DROPTHROUGH-TRUCKS-245-MM-OV-ALL/132873824772
With one of these decks
Has anyone got good motor mount recommendations?
I appreciate this was a lot to ask, sorry!
Thanks for your help.
