Hey guys, So I’ve been long boarding for a while now, and last year I wanted to get into eletric longboards mainly for the speed and avoiding those tiring up hills xD. In december i decided to invest in carvon exo, but that seemed to be a lost cause, so just recently, a couple days ago I charged back and got my money back from my bank.
I was looking at evolve gt bamboo, and was very interested by it but however I was put down by its news of sudden braking at top speeds and other problems, for its specs, it just doesn’t seem to be worth my 1500 dollars.
Now I want to try and build my own, but I have no budget for mistakes, and would like to get some advice from the experts and veterans, to see what you guys think.
I am looking to use either a landyachtz evo skate and explore, or evo falcon, or a switchblade 40/38.
Now I will need your help deciding which board, I like them all, but I am really not sure which is best, and best suited for what I want to do. I want fast casual cruising, downhill rides, and easy going uphill.
I am looking for around 30-40mph on flat surface.
Nextly the motors, which is best suited for my speed? (btw I weight 190 if that helps)
I saw these motors around the forum, any good for 30-40mph?
Also should I get a esc or vesc or focbox? I know the difference between esc and vesc but what about focbox? seems to be a new thing for me. I also have no clue how to set these up so anything over complicated I might mess up haha.
I think i can manage everything else except battery and pulley system.
what battery would be best to achieve good output for the motor above(or another motor you recommend) and get 30-40mph? I also think I will be using a LiPo for better output but open to suggestions.
And pulley system, I have no clue how this works, how many components I must buy, and what I should use with my motor and what teeths(motor and wheel) I need for 30-40mph. If you could explain a little and link me, I would be greatly appreciated.
So write now im just trying to learn about best options for motor, board, esc, battery, and pulley.
Thank you guys so much for taking the time to read my long ass post full of noob questions, but your time is much appreciated and really helps me out so much, thanks again, im open to all suggestions!
PS: My budget is around 1300-1600 USD.
