I’m using a 12t motor pulley to a 60t drive pulley. Is there a minimum distance I should keep between them? The trucks I’m mounting everything to have little room for mounting stuctures, so I’m building a cantilevered 2020 extrusion frame. The closer I can keep the motors to the axle the better, but I don’t want to sacrifice good belt grippage.
I just feel like the closer the small pulley is, the less angle the belt will come in on, therefore less teeth grabbing. Is this correct thinking?
