Okay so I am trying to build a longboard that will have a maximum speed of 40-50 mph & go a range of 12 miles or above.
I am 17 years old, 145 pounds and am very decent at longboarding at high speeds. This isn’t my first electric longboard and have gone up to 30 before and I am craving that 40-50 mph range.
I want to plan this build out first and was thinking of these components
Motors (2 of them):
VESC (2 of them): collections/featured-items/products/torque-esc-vesc-bldc-electronic-speed-controller
Battery(4 of these, 2 in series and 2 in parallel to double both the (s) and (mAh)):
Deck: I’m not sure, any recommendations?
Wheels: Any flywheels at or above 97mm
Trucks: I’m not sure for this
These are the parts so far, what I need help/ advice on is, what gear ratio do I use for the motor and where can I get a motor mount and also if what I have will get me to go 40-50 MPH, any suggestions would be SUPER helpful since it’s my first time actually building a electric longboard from scratch!!!
Also ps my budget is 800-1100 usd
