This is my first build. Wanted a shorter nimble deck that was lighter than my Metroboard Stealth. Also wanted a lot of sharp carve ability.
Used parts from Torqueboard, mBoards and DIYelectricskateboard.
- 36T KEGEL Pulley Combo Kit
- Electric Skateboard Motor 6374 190KV
- Single Bolt On Motor Mount Set
- TORQUE ESC VESC
- Deck - Landyacht Mummy Jungle Fern 33’’
- Nano 2 Remote
- Angled risers from amazon
- Orangatang Kegel 80 mm 83a
- Mboard Battery Solution
- 10s2P / Samsung
- Gullwing 2 truck on front, Caliber on back
- Battery Monitor
Been riding it for about 3 weeks now. It gets about 10 miles of range. Climbs all the hills in my area fine. No wobbles up to 18mph but I can tell it wants to go faster. It has this 2nd gear that I dare not press at this point. Very fast off the line from standing still. The VESC programming was a bit of a challenge but only in regards to the remote. I have to set the sensitivity every time I turn on remote. No big deal as a workaround to the known problems discussed on the boards.
The only thing I would do different is the enclosure. Used lots of yoga mat padding to account for the curve in the board. Clevis pins was an ok solution.
Thanks to all the people who contribute to the boards. Thanks to DonR with hosting a drilling party at his place.
Some pics below.
The plastic cord on the side is the USB wire to the VESC. Might get rid of that or do something more elegant. I’m also waiting on my local library to finish a 3D print for the drive train belt cover. Welcome your feedback. Was really fun to build and I can see how addictive this can be.
