right? It’s never ending…
To help encourage someone to try this though, moving from 6354 200 Kv motors to 6354 260 Kv increases max current by 25%! That means without changing out any of your electronics, that’s a 25% increase in power! With HTD3 belts, one could conceivably translate all that extra power to a 25% increase in torque.
In fact, 6354 260 Kv motors have the same current rating as 6374 200 Kv motors. So you could achieve the same power as dual 6374, without having to fiddle with crazy extended trucks, an while saving close to 800g, or almost 2 fricking lbs of deck weight.
Why belts and not gears? Belts are cheap, they’re pretty quiet, they are easy to swap out gear ratios, and I’ve yet to see a gearbox achieve a gear ratio of greater than 3:1 and clear the ground with 80mm wheels the way Boosted does it.
