This will my first electric board build. Looking to build a commuter board that’s going to work well in the slightly hilly region of Victoria BC. I’m very new to all this and haven’t used a skateboard in years. My logic is to make something fast, dangerous and expensive to re-learn with because I have terrible logic. I’ve assembled pretty much all the parts and have started to put it all together. Learning tonnes from this forum; this place is a gem.

Big thanks to @psychotiller for having a store and taking my money. Pretty much everything was from him and he made sure I had what I needed. The battery which is from @torqueboards.
I’ll update with some photos a bit later when it’s not just a pile of metal, wood and rubber.
A couple thoughts, I’m considering switching to a Landyachtz EVO in the future. My reasoning is my commute is about 10-12km of mostly straight country road. I like the idea of the stability the EVO would bring.
I’m also considering slicing up the 12S4P to replace the BMS with a better spec’d one. I was a bit over zealous hitting the buy button on the battery before I noticed the specs of the BMS. For now though I’ll live with it as it might be a non-issue; we shall see.
