Trying to keep it all in one topic but realize there are a lot of questions here. I did the best I could to research as many posts as possible before deciding to put this up…
Quick background: I bought a Carbon GT last year before i really knew much about E-boards. At the time it looked pretty sick. I have since got an upgraded battery from @longhairedboy (Damon is awesome) which was also awesome, buuuuuut after months of reading posts on Esk8 and looking at how sick some of the boards are (@duffman, @longhairedboy, @Nowind, and others) have built are, I think I am ready to try my hand building a mountain board. I have never built a board before but I am a pretty bright dude who can figure much of it out. (but will definitely need help!) I have done quite a bit research and have a skeleton of what i want to build but admittedly having no experience building I am certainly up for as much advice as folks will offer or debate on parts. Here is what I am thinking:
Rider: 6ft 220lbs/100kg in Long Island (NY) USA Deck: Trampa Holypro (17ply) Bindings: Ratchet Bindings Trampa Trucks: Vertigo Hubs: Superstar Tires: Primo Striker Battery: 12s (suggestions? Was thinking li-ion Samsung 30Q but curious about graphene want to try to make as light as possible) ESC: was thinking Vesc 6 VS. Enertion FOCBOX VS. hobbyking Max6? Motor: Leopard 8072 - 175kv (are all of the leopard unsensored?) or APS 8072S 165kv 6000w (leaning toward sensored) Drive: E-toxx Chain Drive @nowind
Here are some wide open questions maybe folks can point me in right direction: Remote/Receiver: Enertion nano-x but wanted something w battery/speed display if possible either in remote or on vesc case any suggestions? ESC box? If no speed/battery in remote what do I need for esc box to display? Battery box? Pelican? Lights (front and rear)? What brands? On a separate battery? 4s 2650? Fuse? Not sure exactly what is best for this set up Cutoff? Not sure exactly what is best for this set up BMS 12S XXA? Power switch? Not sure exactly what is best for this set up Solenoids? (need one for + switch + battery)
For wiring I have this: male to male servo connector 10awg wire Vesc can bus connector vesc xt90s dual xt90 connector im sure im missing a ton of stuff
Any tools you highly recommended that aren’t obvious?
