Looking to buy a single motor mount that work on caliber 2 enertion trucks and a 6374 motor. Thanks. Prefer for it to be less than $60. I have been looking online and most mounts are either really expensive or too cheap and unreliable.
A guy in the forum is selling some of these. I purchased and am just waiting for it to come in (he is in and ships from Lithuania).
Looks like a really sturdy mount and for $40, I went for it. Suppose you can ask others in that thread if they enjoy the mount.
For just the motor mount, it’s in your price range. You still need to source motor/wheel gears and belts. I recommend using the bbman belt length calculator when you know your gear teeth numbers and Center to Center distances.
@Gee - pretty sure that’s exactly what he was referencing as cheap/unreliable. That and the round hanger mount ebay ones - i’d avoid personally.
For a single setup, especially if you aren’t a lightweight rider - i’d get minimum 12mm wide gears/belt, or better even to go to 15mm. If in doubt i’d also suggest trying to add an idler pulley to keep more teeth in mesh and less force/belt-tightness needed so less wear on all.
HTH - GL!
as a general rule, but specifically with powered skateboard gear… If its good it ain’t cheap, if it’s cheap it ain’t good.
I totally agree but then why you ordered a couple of hobbyking motor mounts?
But i also have to say that i had an expensive mount on my first build which has never worked properly…
I think there are areas you can skimp to save some $.
A mount isn’t one i’d suggest unless there’s history and a feel for reliability.
To put it in perspective - a motor mount failure at speed will almost certainly be catastrophic (as in sailing through the air and about to introduce your face to the asphalt/road/sidewalk). So going bare budget least expensive option here doesn’t seem like a good idea…
But hey - i like my face, and think most of it missing might affect my ruggedly handsome good looks…
I would prioritize those critical items and not be the first to try a budget mount (not to say it might be a good deal and worth checking into - for science!), vs tried-and-true.
I would highly recommend Korry’s mounts - one on my GF’s board and rock solid. I also recommend the v2 and v4 DIYes mounts (made from 7xxx series aluminum - NICE!).
I’ve tried a ton of different ones - ADS v1, v1/v2/v4 DIYes, Enertion CF (nice not as adjustable), Psychotiller, KorryH, and the two i’d use are Korry or DIYes. The new ADS v2 might be better than the v1, but i tried on Paris 195’s and round hanger/axle + mount = PITA and don’t recommend.
Anyway - HTH and GL!
Yep, because I wanted to see the composition and architecture. You will notice that I have posted any builds using them :).
