I almost finished my electric longboard but I encountered a problem ,
the motor sometimes hits the ground and I’m not sure what to do ,
I thinking about installing risers but it feel a bit high and i’m not sure if it’s okay for my longboard type (could be dangerous)
So I thought about putting the motor at the back like the evolve gt and I assume I will have to buy longer motor mount (if exist ) and longer trucks and still i’m not sure if it’ll work
what possible not so expensive solution do you know?
also I really like the idea of motor at the back , how do I do that?
I went from riding a very low to the ground drop though with 70mm wheels
to an Esk8 with top mount, 1/2" risers and 90mm wheels.
It’s still plenty stable and I can carve like crazy with no bite.
I can roll over speed bumps without scraping as well.
Think you’ve shot yourself in the foot by grinding your trucks for the motor mount angle for drop through truck.
You should mount the truck under as people have said and used a different angle on the motor mount to bring it closer to the deck.
