Nice Evo sir
damn this is pretty, what problems did you have with your sk8? im looking to get 2 6374’s @ 190kv to Australia. are they worth the extra like $30 compared to sk3’s?
mate to honest they look almost identical under the can except for the sensor pcb. Seems like an updated design is all so should be as reliable. I think that mine were just a bad luck thing and hk would have changed them for me had i been bothered to send them back. one threw a hall sensor error up and the other had a catastrophic rear bearing failure. They were great up till then though. I have heard of similar issues with the sk3 a few months back but hk being hk will have addressed it by now. They still work but just sensorless.
Will do as it progresses. loving it so far and haven’t ridden it yet. shes rolling
lovely looking build - rev mounts look really cool!
wiring is almost there.
bagged up the motors for the flat spot shaft work and ran out of get up and go.
Should be up and running for testing in the am.
@Eboosted man can that loctite hold a pulley without set screws and keys and flat spots? rather just use that if it can. Been playing with wedges too to get the deck where it was designed to be @Cobber apparently the deck was designed with randal 35 degree baseplates so these 15 should get it there is it worth doing? Oh and I’m assuming they are right. i’m lowering the angle of the hanger.
I’d deffo wedge a EVO Dareno. I couldn’t imagine riding one on 50’s without. How fast are trying to go?
Loctite works like a champ on motor pulleys, you just need to heat them to brake the loctite to get the pully off. TBH it makes a stronger union than a set screw
cool stuff. thought you’d know lol. Just took it out for a non powered old school downhill sesh and my god its planted man. so comfortable even with these crap bushings. can not wait to get it under power.
think it will still hit 60ks with the gearing at 15/36 because I really want it to do that going back up. I rely on gravity for the downhill bits
What a nice build! Let me ask you a question, what is the black piece highlighted in the picture?..it seems a plastic protector…is it 3d printed?..i would be interested to know more to protect my battery.
I think I distinctly stated that you were to ignore that one. Its for later on.
Man they are the fine work of the creator of this fine forum because that my friend is an enertion 10s 4p 30q pack without the wrap. They are a plastic battery cell holder but not 3d printed I’m afraid. Them there would be mass produced. Keep looking though because someone somewhere has made some trust me.
LOL…i could not ignore such fine work. Indeed it seems enertion cells holder Thanks!
where are you based my friend?
based in Brazil (Sao Paulo city). Our group of esk8’ers is small, but growing We should have our first group ride in the next month or so…saw that you’re in Australia…lot’s of companies and big community…it should fun!
you’d think but big old country and very spread out. So not so much in the small communities. I build boards for nothing to get people riding.
Board looks sweet mate. Inspired me to write a build thread. Very similar to yours.
p.s Basement Skate has the TSG Pass on sale for $309 AUD if you don’t already have a full face.
Yes, use Loctite 680 no grub screws or keyways, but the pulley must slide in not loose and not tight, just perfect
@dareno Good to see it mate, Really excited to see it. Share some videos about the performance of this board.
Its so close now after a frenzied night and morning session. My workshop looks like a bomb went off in there.
this was without a doubt the scariest part of the build so far
Getting the meter in and straight because beautiful as it is the enclosure does not have a straight line in it anywhere to measure from so eyeballing was the only way.
Taped up for the charge port and switch. back to the drive to get some netting on (I know using a lighter for shrink tube is ghetto af) Final connections outside the board and doing the lock shrinks to avoid those disconnected bullets. (loving those idlers though locks the mounts so well too) Loving the way the grommetts look but on the next i won’t use those usb’s they are too huge and look like nipples. They are waterproof though and that was the thinking behind it Still reminds me of the underside of a pregnant dog though. Some silicon in the grommetts for a bit more protection and a cable tie to lock them in. Next one is going to be a teeny tiny little charge only bms though. That is a big bitch. Getting some foam in there to keep it all snug. Bit worried about the bms getting too warm but it has to be locked down tight. Battery is velcro’d down to the enclosure so it shouldn’t move laterally but I’m going to foam all down the sides once I’ve configured the ppm as I have to get to the cabling. The phase wiring needs locking with shrink but again without sensors I need to be able to swap if we are running the wrong way round which is inevitable. Sorry about the last pic btw I was shaking with the thought of hooking it all up and something going bang. All thats left to do is programming and get some new hardware for the truck wedges. I’ll probably run without the x thingys for now though as I’m over going bloody shopping. Most satisfying build so far by a country mile this one because of the wonderful designing that made it possible. I’ve created something beautiful by standing on the shoulders of better men
Beautiful build. I would personally put at least some capton tape over that BMS. Too many exposed connections were you could get a short. I have capton + heat shrink over mine and the only thing that overheats are my motors. That is with 30-40C temperatures outside
