So, im trying to replace my car. So i want a nice and reliable board and this will be the first one i make. After around 30 or so hours of research i think i am ready. This is my list of things to buy, but i have two questions that perhaps someone can help me with.
Is the deck i chose nice? Should i purchase a board with little to no flex? i hate flex anyway and personally i dont even know if the board i chose has that much flex. However its a regular longboad so i assume it does.(im a skater not a cruiser)
In terms of hooking everything up with eachother, is it advisable to have the vesc directly to the motor or should i get some extensions?
Dont judge me and my laziness with buying the DIY battery. I just want to study my first DIY… also i dont have many tools… so everything involving the battery wouldve been just a huge test of my patience that i didnt wanna deal with. A 2-3 hour charge coming from a regular old laptop charger is super simple for me… so yay. Also it has the indicator, switch and even the enclosure which i just find super useful.
I know i can probably create my mech kit myself… but the extra parts will be handy in case i ever wanna make another board.

2.Longboard 180mm Trucks Combo w/ 83mm Flywheels + Owlsome ABEC 7 Bearings 40$
- ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD BATTERY EPOWER PACK 6S4P 264.66$ (unless the 9s2p would be better, idk any thoughts?)
4.TORQUE ESC VESC ® BLDC ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROLLER 100$ With receiver cord 2$
DIY TORQUE ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD MOTOR 6355 190KV
SINGLE BOLT ON MOTOR MOUNT W/ DRIVE WHEEL KIT 107$
DIY 2.4 ghz remote with receiver 60$
would a 6s4p battery and a turnigy 260kv motor be better? Im looking for a lot of range.
All in all my total will be 700 maybe a tad more because of shipping
So what does anyone think hmm? Would all these work in conjunction? Any suggestions? Especially in regards to how i can change the voltage for the VESC once i hook it up with the software? Or how i should have it? especially if i want range?
I also just want to add that this forum has been an absolute blast in terms of how much knowledge ive obtained. I could not have done, any of this without the countless of hours of reading that i put into this website. Thankyou everyone!!! Hope to be zooming alongside some of you one day!
