I’m just starting my first build. So far I have a deck (Vanguard), Trucks (Caliber 2 50) & Wheels (Kegel).
I’m looking to create a dual motor setup, and now I need to start piecing together my drivetrain.
I’m thinking of this Alien Drive Systems kit, which should get me clamps, motor mounts, pulleys and belts. The motor pulley is a 10mm shaft size, which might not work for my motor, but I can find a replacement if needed.
I’m finding it quite hard (as I’m sure most do) to find suitable motors - Options for me right now seem to be either 2x eSk8.de’s 6354, 200kV 2.1kW or 2x Enertion’s 6355 R-SPEC, 190kV 2.4kW.
eSk8 has a 10mm shaft which looks like it should go well with the Alien pulley (though I’m not sure if it has a keyway, some pictures seem to show one and others don’t). Enertion’s is 8mm, so I’d need to get new motor pulleys, but I don’t think that adds too much to the cost cost.
In terms of gearing the Alien kit comes with a 15T/32T setup. Not sure what battery I’ll go for right now… with a 10S I think that would give me more than enough weighted speed at 190 or 200 kV. With an 8S I think it’s should still be acceptable?
What do you more experienced guys think?
