Finally got my side job up n running, will surely kick my board in gear
Now comes the questions, with money one the way it becomes time for me to make choices… and man do I suck at those So with this cry for help out of the way, I’d like to hear your guys two cents on all of this
A little side info about my soon to be build:
I have bought a few components here and there, slowly piecing together what is to be a mountainboard.
Bought a trampa deck, not sure exactly which one it is but it looks like an hs11 with werid mounting holes, so I’ll need to redrll those (got it from @mikedv thanks for that!)
Trampa infinity trucks, on their way to me too
mbs five star hubs with their 9" tire + tube
Unity Esc pre ordered, can’t wait for that to arrive in the next… few months I guess
-TB 6356 motors (2x)
then batteries, here comes one of the two parts I don’t really know yet. I have no problem building my own pack, and with those nice enclosures it’d be a shame not to go with 20700 class cells, but I’d have no idea which ones to choose
deconstructing a lipo is also something I’m thinking about, but that would only be an option if I get a deal on some packs or something (been eyeing a second hand deal locally. 2 x 6s 10AH 25C-50C pack’s that have only been run 8 times)
lastly comes the receiver, which I don’t have a clue as to what to get
Hope you guys have some interesting notions about any of these parts or even some components lying around that they want to sell
Samsung 40T or ncr20700b.
Chains don’t break like belts, could be run looser (I think), more torque transfer, can have smaller motor cog. @Andy87 please confirm
You can get @Eboosted enclosure on BF sale
If you like trigger, get mini remote. Cheap and reliable. Or @MasterCho mod of GT2B
If you like thumb, nano remote, nano X, firefly, featherfly, maytech sextoy remote, all good
Why do you want 20700? 18650 are more energy dense and cheaper. 30Qs have great energy density and great power density. 20700 have similar power density but worse energy density and cost is ridiculous.
LIPO is the way to go if you really want a ton of power though… Cheap and extremely power dense.
Belts run smoother and more silent plus less weight and more range.
This said, I love my chains, I love the sound.
No belt slipping and instand torque.
I think it’s the way to go for emtb if you don’t want or don’t have the money for a gear drive.
@Bokard you can use chains also with the mounts from @Idea
It’s what i‘m gonna do for my next build.
Depending on which version you choose you will just need a different size of cross bar. But that shouldn’t be a big problem.
Even if I like the under board tray mount (and I have one of those you also want ) I don’t use it at the moment. I have only 8“ wheels for now but I would be afraid crashing the battery tray while driving in the woods or so. Top mount is the way to go in this case. As min my opinion. I didn’t liked the look before, but now i‘m very happy with it. Easy to swap lipos too.
If you non the less want to go with under board tray and you need some covers for the holes in the deck sent me your e-mail as pm and I can sent you the stl Files
Thanks the input man! And we’ll I want to go under board with the battery pack because of the fact that the board will mainly be used in the city, but the roads here are shit and I want to be able to go offroad too
