Hi folks, I’ve been around some time, reading and studying your awesome builds. I’ve pulled the trigger in July and this is what I’ve came up with.
Motor: Turnigy SK3 6364 245kV Board: Murksli Slider Trucks: Paris 180mm Batts: 2x4S 5000mAh Lipos Charger: ISDT SC-620 with parallel charging DIY cables, charging time 35min @10A VESC 4.12 Motor mount: 3D printed with XT-CF20 Enclosure: 3D printed with GreenTEC Wheels: Orangatang Kegels 83mm
Top speed: 30+ km/h Range: 14 km, 16km/h average
Now, while I find my setup to be perfectly fine in terms of overall performance, I’m looking for a slight (few hundred $) upgrade: Motor: 190 kV sensored 6374 Battery: additional 4S so 3x4S - 12S setup Wheels: ABEC11 97mm, 75A ESC: Focbox (because of, you know, FOC) Trucks: Caliber II 50 or TB 218mm
What do you guys think? Should I go for even lower kV motor like 170 or 149 kV? Sensored? I’m quite set on 97mm wheels, Kegels are great but roads to my workplace are 40% rough. Need a smoother ride.
Paris trucks have some long-term limitations (too much hassle) for my 3D printed mounts so basically upgrading them to better profile is a no brainer. 218mm will give me even more options for the future (2x6374 anyone?), but raw Calibers just look so nice.
What do you guys think? What’s rational upgrade and what’s not? Any hints and experiences are welcome.
