So I was lucky enough to pick up a very cheap Louboard 1.0. I bought it for a gag and to keep in the office for a fun commute to the local coffee shop.
But I actually love the size and weight. Its been a load of fun. But man it is slow!!! The single hub does NOT do hills, like not even a slight incline. The battery sag as well is real!!
So I’m thinking I need to throw in a VESC (or two) and maybe change the battery pack. I have experience in belt setups but I have no idea about hub motors. According to the louboards website it has a 1.5kw motor. I assume based off the fact it hardly moves that it is terrible.
So I want to upgrade to a new hub motor setup. The board is running 83mm wheels which I actually like on the nickel board setup. So Im looking for some help.
Can any one suggest:
- Single or dual setup?
- Quality hub motors with some grunt? (prefer high torque over top speed) (prefer 83mm rather then 90mm) The new Predator Banshee hubs look pretty powerful.
