Impulse bought this bad boy for $25 at a thrift store in Brooklyn. It runs, but barely. I figure I could drop a hoverboard battery in and get it choochin’ in no time. Thoughts?
Step One: remove the rear wheel
Step Two: remove front truck of your Esk8
Step Three: bolt blue scooter to deck
Step Four: zip tie remote to throttle area
Step Five:wear helmet
Step six: don’t die
I’ve got one of those, It gets a reasonable top speed.
Don’t over-volt that thing unless you upgrade the ESC, it’ll fry its self otherwise.
If I remember correctly, it’s got a 24V battery using lead acid. Motor is a plain DC brushed motor.
You do remember correctly. The battery spec (2x 7ah 12v lead acid in series) is written on the side
You guys think this can handle 8s?
