ESk8 2.0 "Slim Jim" Jacob Hub Motors-Spacecell-Dual Vesc

Here’s a little build thread of my latest unfinished project. I wanted to build a compact board that I can easily take with me as a carry on when traveling. Im still trying to figure out a way make the battery easily removable for TSA check but will likely end doing an ABS battery housing held with 6 bolts and bring tools with me to reinstall the housing.

-JACOB HUB MOTORS I decided to dye the urethane black using rit dye and vinegar and also installed set screws to hold the torque. I ran the motor wires through the base plate for a stealth look. -SPACECELL I bought a used space cell awhile back that had been modified for his build. I made a new housing for the electronics and recovered the battery in ABS shrink tube. Now I just have to make a nice dumby manufacture sticker with 80wh so TSA doesn’t bother.
-PARIS 185MM FRONT TRUCK because these motors have an offset I bought a larger front truck. Unfortunitely I could only find one in silver so I will likely powder coat or paint black.

Waiting on -2 VESC because this deck is so small I will be mounting both vesc sideways -JACOB BOY BETA CONNECT REMOTE

ABS sheet came in today! It’s awesome how easy this stuff is to work with. Just have to trim the access, make some aluminum side supports and cut the the rectangle for fuel gauge and this battery box is done.

Looks cleanly done! Did you make a heating rig for this one job?

No rig just slowly started heating the sides then corners using a ruler and a piece of aluminum to mold the abs


Impressive dude!

Really nicely done! What is the wheel base on that deck? Did you have to redo the space layout to get it to fit? Could you expand on that a little Thanks

Thanks a lot! I considered making a rig but ABS is cheap so I figured Id give it a try. Turns out its not hard at all! just time consuming

Thanks dude! Wheel base is only 17" so its pretty small. I had to redo the layout anyways because the used space cell I bought was hacked up with out any casing. Im not sure if my modded space cell is any shorter than the original

this is awesome. I want to see more.
