Hello. I’m not sure how to start a thread, it’s my first time on the site. I am looking to build my first electric longboard. I am 6’1 weigh 220lbs. I am looking to build a longboard using the Bustin Nomad 36 inch. Other than that I don’t know what parts would go with this board to achieve 25 mph with a charge of at least 20 miles. All tips and advice is appreciated. Would also appreciated someone letting me know how to start my own thread. Thanks in advance. .
Welcome to esk8 builders. The most important rule is: READ A LOT BEFORE MAKING A THREAD. Second rule:USE SEARCH FUNCTION. Only after you have a specific idea of parts, you can make a thread because there are tons already made, so just read.
