Almost all the parts have now been purchased, so its time to start my offical build thread.
As a first time builder my flip-flopping on what I want to do has been monumental. If my understanding of electronics was better and If money was no object, I am it would have been more of a no brainer. @RunPlayBack most recent dual hub build nailed what I aspired to build. But, unfortunately the current AUD rate (shipping kills it!) has made it less affordable to buy in the states so I’ve switched gears to purchase here in Australia and keep the pretty much kept the design more modest. Special mention to @LEVer and @torqueboards for graciously fielding my questions over the last few weeks… stand up guys that I hope to do business with at some point in the future.
I wanted to keep this fairly compact and lightweight for my 195lbs - 6’3" frame as I will likely be toeing it on and off the tram.
The hit list already purchased or on its way:
- Landyatchz Topspeed 34"
- Enertion R spec 6372 :
- Enterion remote
- Enertion motor mount
- Black Caliber II 50º trucks
- Bones super reds bearings
- Runplayback (single vesc) Sulaco V1 enclosure: http://runplayback.bigcartel.com/products
- 10s3p Spacecell
Final part to purchase today/tomorrow:
12mm pulley kit from Enertion
VESC - (Chaka’s was intended but coupled with shipping to Aust. became too much). So I hope to secure one of the new Enertion VESC for the next shipment.
Wheels - I’ve narrowed this down to one of 3 options. Either the ABEC 11 Flywheels (83mm) or clones, Orangutang Kegels (80mm) or the new Evolve Black/Orange combo wheels (83mm).
Since I am going with more or stealth black look I am really interested in the new Evolve wheels. I imagine they would be of decent quality urethane and would work well with the Enertion. If I went with the Kegels, I’d have to work out another mount system than whats currently available for Enertion. I wonder if I can modify the Evolve fully to work with my set up?
More to come in the upcoming days…
