You better play with the calculator to understand whihc motor pulley and wheels pulley you want because 97mm will give you more top speed but less torque, so better to balance. Did yo decide the motor? it is also important to decide the pulleys http://calc.esk8.today/

Yea, I’ve chosen this motor : https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-sk8-6374-192kv-sensored-brushless-motor-14p.html I’ve been playing around with this calculator and i think that i don’t know what i am doing. Could you send me optimum pulley?

Now I am at the phone but I will have a look later. If someone else can reply please help him. Anyhow the motor you chose is great. Only think that better you are aware is bigger than others because has a fan in it so good for cooling but if you want to go duak in future is tricky to paired in the classical configuration. Just wanted to let you know. Good choice 6374 btw

Have a look with 10s1p, that motor and 97mm wheels these could be good configuration. The lower the speed the more torque you get. Take into account that usually if a motor is 192Kv it is actually a bit less so you will get a bit more torque and less top speed. So 15 motor Pulley and 36 wheel Pulley seems OK. You could ask on the specific thread for that motor the real Kv they have. It is like new sk8 Hollyking motor… EDIT: wrong pics, right ones few posts below You have to look at the loaded speed.

With this budget you should stick to regular (non-electric) longboards or buy a used prebuilt china hub motor board.

Thanks a lot, and I think it’s fast enough for me

Yea, but i already have longboard and my budget is now 400$

Sorry I posted the wrong picture so you need 15 36 more speed or 15 38bfor more torque but still reach 40khm chromechrome

Then you need to find a Pulley kit abec 11 or flywheels. The motor Pulley has to be metal for sure, the wheel Pulley can be also printed in case you don’t find it. I would say at least 12mm belt width otherwise the belt will skip a lot during hard braking

yea, this is the most tricky part, but i’am still looking around (sorry for not replying but i was out of town for a few days)

No problem man. Pulley kit are kind expensive you can find in the range of 20-30 euro good ones

any examples (maybe below 20 euro and with extra belt?)

and i have to calm down a bit, maybe even change some parts to cheaper replacements because i’m know sth like 163 € + 165 $

Just make a Excell sheet so you know everything before order everything

I think that kit.com is enough (https://kit.com/xeroxgame/electric-longboard-v2)

and i found something like this (https://pl.aliexpress.com/store/product/SUMRAY-HTD3M-Ko-a-Pasowego-Rozrz-du-Zestaw-Paska-Redukcji-1-3-3-m-20-t/3471011_32855381255.html?spm=a2g17.search0104.3.243.51e52319kuh2NL&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0%2Csearchweb201602_2_10152_10151_10065_10344_10068_10342_10343_10340_10341_312_10696_10084_5724015_10083_10618_5724315_10304_10307_10820_10301_10821_5724215_5724115_10843_10059_100031_5725015_10103_5724915_10624_10623_10622_10621_10620_528%2Csearchweb201603_56%2CppcSwitch_7&algo_expid=f2effdbd-3c09-4b8b-ad77-dfb8ad91e8d6-38&algo_pvid=f2effdbd-3c09-4b8b-ad77-dfb8ad91e8d6&transAbTest=ae803_1&priceBeautifyAB=0), but i don’t know inner diameter of wheels so I asked a seller about it. Do you think it’ll work?

Well is a 20t and 60t it won’t work. The inner diameter is written in the wheel description. Anyhow I found also bkack 97mm ones on Ali if you want.

What does “t” mean? And how many "t’s " should i get? I’d prefer green ones beacuse my board is in green-white-wood colors

T are the teeth, so check the picture I sent before a good ration 15t and 38t for torque and around 42kmg top speed

I checked it earlier but i found 16t 48t pulley. Could you check it for me? (2nd belt is for safety if 1st break up)
