I would like to upgrade my current build and also transition it into my second build.
Here is my first build for reference:
Basically what it was, is a Psychotiller enclosure that could house my Meepo Sanyo battery and my diyeboard ESC, coupled with diyeboard dual motors/trucks.
My priority is that I really want to upgrade my trucks and motors to something I can fix myself or replace with parts. I was looking at the dual motor set from diyelectricskateboard:
While these motors have lasted me 11 months now, they seem close to falling apart. I’ve had both motors and mounts become loose and had to use some metal glue to secure it all. But they make grind-y noises and without being able to actually disassemble it, I figure I should invest in better parts that I can replace each piece in case something goes wrong, instead of continuing to mend the current.
I would like to upgrade my battery and ESC as well, but I can only afford so much at a time.
My first question to anyone who is knowledgeable, is will my current ESC and Battery be able to power those 2 motors if I choose to upgrade them first?
My second question, or concern really, is that this is still new to me, even working with tools really. While I have confidence I can put together another build, I wouldn’t mind taking the time to invest in some pre-assembled parts.
I would like to upgrade my battery to something more “flat” and longer, so I could get more ground clearance in the future. I saw that Torqueboards/diyelectricskateboard sell pre-assembled battery packs with power and charging ports already built in. How are the quality of these? I don’t have the confidence to solder batteries myself. And whether the new battery would work with my current ESC until I could afford a proper VESC setup is a whole other question in itself…
Appreciated and thank you
