Hi everyone, I’m looking to build a dual set up for my first Esk8 build. I was thinking of going with a single drive but i live in an area where hills are plenty, so i figured more torque on the board will be best. I have two normal longboards, a mini cruiser and an electric board from a kickstarter, Leafboard. So i guess you can say i have ‘some’ experience on boards and such. However, i am a huge doofus when it comes to the electronic parts. And having electronics explode are my worst fears. Hence i wrote this post to ask for advice and opinions.
Here’s some pics of my board. My set up is, Orangatang Kegels Bones Reds Ceramic Earthwing Cruiser 32" Caliber 44 Trucks
And here are the electronic parts that i plan to buy, not too sure if these parts are suitable for a dual set up, do advise me otherwise!

As for the battery, i’m not too sure which to go for, but my goal is to have a good amount of range, and for the battery to be relatively flat, not too bulky. Still deciding… collections/electric-skateboard-battery-pack
As for the enclosure, i plan to get it last after setting up everything and then calculate how big should the enclosure be.
Hopefully i didn’t miss anything out. These are the items i plan to buy. Do let me know if there are any items that i should add on or change.
I’m not very good at this sort of thing, but i’m willing to learn! Thank you for reading!
