Hi! I am planning my first DIY build. I have rough idea in mind and I would like to get some feedback on it.
I am on a heavier side (110kg/240lbs) and I am looking for speeds around 50kmh/30mph and range of about 50km/30mi.
Motors: Dual Flipsky 6384 140KV battle hardened (going with more torque because of my weight)
Trucks: Flipsky 15.22 DKP
Wheels: Flipsky 7’’ offroad
Remote: Flipsky VX2 pro
Battery: 12s6p, looking at Molicell P42A or Samsung 40T
BMS: Not picked yet, but I am planning to use it for charge only so it does not need to be super powerful.
Deck: Planning to use a blank deck from Aliexpress, which I am planning to wrap in carbon fiber for strength and stiffness. Planning to use Lucid grip glow grip with it. It is expensive, but I think that it could look very cool. And those $25 are really not that much in the grand scheme of things…
Enclosure: DIY 3D printed or made from carbon fiber using 3D printed mold
Do I need to use a heatsink that will protrude out of the enclosure to cool down the ESC?
I was planning not to charge batteries to the full capacity (4.1-4.15V for example) in order to extend their lifetime and to have some extra capacity for breaking when fully charged.
I would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions.
