I’m currently Building/Ordering parts for my first DIY board. I’m trying to use some nice pneumatic tires and found these in a kit. Has anyone used it or has a better alternative in the same price range?
Very cheap components to be honest and the companies ethics are questionable. If you are on a very tight budget then anything that gets you rolling is fine but you will be upgrading before too long so weigh that up.
Tbh, I think the following components are of an acceptable quality from diyeboard:
Dual belt ESC for a cheapo setup if you’re heavier, its pretty smooth.
6" Airless tires and hubs again if you’re heavier. If you’re light you need to ziptie them to the hub or they expand. The hub is also a cheap 6" metal hub which can be used with the alibaba 6" pnumatic tires everyone uses
Their clone wheels
Their hub motors
N5055 Motors if you’re on a budget these will work pretty well
Things to 100% avoid
Crappy trucks w/ non adjustable mounts
Their red motors
I have seen the trucks you linked used in a very edge case extreme AT scenario and they held up well. They might work out.
