Reverse Mount ground clearance with TorqueBoard mounts and motors

I was putting together my first DIY esk8 with the Torqueboard mounts and I’m finding the ground clearance a little low… does this look low to anyone else? Or am I being paranoid?

I can’t raise it any higher… the next possible position would be way too high.

Advice please!!! Thank you!

That’s too low… unless you get rid of the riser in which case it’s reasonable. Alternatively, add another riser. Or just rotate the motor so that the wires aren’t a problem and then you’re good to go (most likely)

I had the same problem with other mounts. Designed my own mounts that will arrive soon from china :smiley:


Will they be available for sale?

I ordered a small batch and if they hold up well I will sell the ones I do not use myself.

On the topic of bringing up other mounts…

Mine will not have that ground clearance issue either. Just thought I would casually throw this in the mix :slight_smile:


You could try relocating the rear truck further back on the deck so that the motors are not under the deck.

@Erod - We have a reverse mount if you want to mount in reverse. Out of stock now but should have some in on Monday/Tuesday. Reverse mount will also clear the baseplate.


Move the trucks back and not do reverse mount?.. hmm… might be crazy enough to work.

Thanks, I’ve already spend way more $$ on parts than I was expecting… Would rather buy a used deck that fits better.

Do you have an SLDPRT or F3D file of those kegels by any chance?

Actually, I meant to move the truck back and keep it reverse mounted.

Please keep us posted, I’m in for a set!

Yeah that’s what I thought you meant at first… but the motor wouldn’t fit that high anyways, the trucks are in the way…

BUT I still moved the trucks back 3/4 inch to the rear and I think that’s going to work non-reverse… Just need a slightly higher riser… so thanks for the idea!

I feel your pain. My budget at last summer was 600e. I exceeded it only about 800e​:joy::joy:


Its just a cylinder with a picture mapped on top :slight_smile:

Sure! I will make a thread about them after testing :slight_smile:
