Please note, Only to show the complete set up, new deal its cheaper, but with out the truck!
Hello folks! A friend of mine gave me his contact for this Hub Motors. They look exactly as the TorqueBoards ones, with same specs ecc… I believe they are the same As far as I know they performe quite good and I will get it one pair for sure or maybe 2 because I can not decide between 75Kv and 130Kv (life dilemma!). I have the diyebaord 90mm hub 75Kv and they are strong but I got used to the top speed. I know there is Carvon and other option for direct drive but for the moment I still want to follow my passion without spend a fortune Update 19/07/2018 Here the new and to me more better deal. The original deal was 215 Euro with the truck. Since the guy didn’t have the truck we were going to pay it more. So the new deal I got it is still for a small order. We need to reach at least ** 10 sets of dual hubs or 20 hubs in total**. As I said they come without the Paris truck (clone) but you can purchase them for really cheap, either locally or on Ali (1pair New 8" long board trucks P bridge paris skateboard trucks electric skateboard truck 8inch dancing board long board bridges http://s.aliexpress.com/eQ7RBFJv?fromSns=Copy to Clipboard - price for two) the hub are 75Kv or 130Kv. They are hall sensored, but you will need an adapter or change the JST connector since they have a ZH 1.5mm as the torqueboards hubs, but you need a PH 2mm connector for the VESC. Of course I can offer to do that for you for cheap. The specs are exactly the same as the torqueboards and they advice 75Kv - 10/12s top speed around 25mhP 130Kv - 6/8s Top speed around 20mhp What is interesting to me 12s 130Kv way above 30mhp (keep in mind 4.12 VESC ERPM limitation)
That being said I will probably go for 130Kv and 10s. I know the ERPM is a bit at the limit but whatever Other guys already did it, so who I am to say no to my heart. Now the nice part, for 20 hubs or 10 dual sets, we can have them for 90 Euro for single, or 170 Euro for dual, shipped to me (custom duties paid). Of course we can order more, but I will send the order as long we reach the threshold since it’s gonna be a small batch anyway and I do not what to wait to long. As option the guy also have spare PU sleeve in case you want to buy it already ( I will), 20 Euro a set of 2 (or 10 Euro each ). If you want me to order the truck (maybe you need only one and do not want to pay for the second one) and ship them all together, I can do it as well. I am in Belgium so then you only need to cover the shipping to your place or come and pick it up! I checked the shipping cost:
With Tracking Number EU Country around Belgium 20 Euro (Germany, France (except Dom-Tom), Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Netherlands and United Kingdom. Rest of EU and USA 30 Euro (Azores, Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Spain, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Madeira, Malta, Man (Island), Monaco, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Czech Republic, Croatia) If you have a better method to ship them, just tell me.
I think I said everything, I hope I calculated correctly otherwise instead of save money I am gonna be the only one loosing it. Of course if I get a better deal I will let you know, but It looks already good to me. For any question contact me. Just to make it clear, I am not try to fool anyone, I just like the idea of sharing in a community. If we will manage to get the deal I will keep you posted daily or weekly as you want.
Note: Since I couldn’t wait, I have already order a 130Kv test drive system. I should get it soon, unfortunately I will be k holiday so can only report back about it in 2-3 weeks. I will try to post pictures once I receive it anyway. My plan is to slightly modify it to improve the mounting system. I will follow what it has already been proved work and add something more (simple stuff). Don’t worry it’s gonna be simple modifications that I will share with you. You can either do it by yourself (Remember it’s a DIY forum) or if it is a problem I can do it for you before ship the motors (with a fair charge on it ). Some information regarding the modifications are in the posts below but I first need to inspect motor and truck to decide it. As I said I have already bought a unit, so I hope that I am actually fine. I have just thought it can be a good deal compare to the original price and I didn’t want to keep it only for me.
