I am in the middle of making my own board using the parts below, but i am curious how much and idler effects range? @AdamE3399 has a dual 6364 build without idlers and he gets around 16km on a 5ah bat so should i expecting to get around 13km or so?
here are other questions as well
how do you calculate range with and idler?
What belt life can i expect?
does 15mm belts effect range more than 12mm?
should i use better bearings than the one supplied from @Boardnamics to decrease drag/resistance?
*Boardnamics motor mount with idler
*Dual flipsky 4.12 v3.4 vescs
*dual Tb 6355 190kv motors
*Tb 218 trucks
*Micro drop down sector 9 deck with carbon and fiberglass layers
*100mm Mbs wheels, green, running bone red bearings
*Chines Bms and charger
*4 x Turnigy 5000mah 3s batteries
the point of idlers is to maximise tooth engagement while allowing the belt to be run as loose as you can get it without slipping. This will stop the belts skipping on accel and braking but reduce the rolling resistance significantly and make the drivetrain more efficient.
