This setup was put together with great care and attention to detail. It has very light use and has never crashed into anything, gone up or down large bumps or rocks. It has only traveled on very smooth tarmac. The torque is insane, and I estimate the top speed to be around 35-40 mph, depending on your weight and how aerodynamic you can be. Going up hills is nothing for this setup, and the belts have never slipped.
Build was completed on October 2018. Please see original build thread HERE for details.
Although I can’t say much about its reliability, being that I have less than 100 miles on it, I have to say that so far it’s been perfect. The belts haven’t lost any tension, thanks to Loctite 243, quality tools and hardware. The battery pack has never been above 50 volts, and never below 41 volts, so it is very well preserved. It rides so smooth, and so fast! You should really be wearing a full face helmet with this. If you aren’t a heavy person, I suggest getting the 32t wheel pulleys from BuildKitBoards.com for some serious top speed.
There are four things I must point out:
The remote needs to be replaced. I spoke with Alex at DIYelectricskateboards.com, and he told me that if you buy a new Nano remote, it will be compatible with the receiver inside the enclosure. Just turn on your new remote, and it will be good to go. However, you’ll end up with a spare receiver because you can’t buy the remote with one.
The motor pulleys make clicking noises. I have posted a video for you to listen. It is only noticeable at very low speeds. Here’s why they click: The set screws didn’t hold the pulleys in place very well, even with Loctite 243. What I ended up doing was putting 2 circlips on each side of the pulleys. Now the pulleys cannot budge, but the set screws are a little loose, so now the keys rattle a bit.
The enclosure bolts near the rear of the deck are a pain to get out. Use Hex Plus tools, and be patient! You shouldn’t have to open it up often though. I haven’t since I started riding it.
The o-rings under the enclosure bolts pop out of the sides of the washers. Might want to consider flat rubber o-rings instead. Not a big deal if you don’t.

Motors running. Clicking sound is the motor pulley key. The set screws may have barely loosened, but are held with loctite 243 so they won’t back out. Instead, C-clips are holding the pulleys in place, so you could remove the set screws and still be secure.
Wheels, bearings, trucks, and enclosure are in great condition.
Power switch, charging port, and battery capacity display.
Belts look great. Never skipped a tooth! Only had to tension once and they haven’t loosened a bit.
Griptape looks practically new. (Could use a litle cleaning though)
