I would like to see how this comes out. In my case it would interesting to see how this could be used with MBS matrix II trucks.
I think I need to do more improvements. More pictures and videos.
He didn’t call them “caliper”
Any updates on this? And 220 for one or a pair?
I made some changes and I will post updates on the weekends. 200~220USD for one
I made some updates. I changed the gearbox.
Got some progress on the Mounts
Video I will update later
That looks great! Good job!
What sort of ratio are you running?
Thanks for your compliment!
The wheel is 40T module 1.5 The motor is 20T The ratio is 2:1
Do you think you can fit 15:45 bro?
how´s the drag/resistance when coasting/free wheeling?
Didn’t know I could write kn chinese
I can try 15:45 but the gearbox will get bigger
I think there is still some resistance. Do not know whether the V-Ring causes resistance. I will add a video later.
These are very interesting, but I’m not sure what the advantage is over the existing drivetrains. If you can build a gearbox that drives both wheels with one motor, you would have a TON of demand.
Looks nice and compact…
Could see a few advantages.
- If the gear is stronger than a belt you don’t have to worry about the belt breaking (now would be worries about gear teeth but depending on materials/lubrication/alignment this might not be an issue).
- Fully enclosed drivetrain means no chance for getting rocks into the belt, you could argue a covered belt drive would also have this advantage but I don’t see many of those.
- No belt tensioning issues this would likely be a rigid system
That said I would like to hear the OP in terms of reasons behind the design or what they see as the major advantages or any disadvantages compared with a more traditional belt driven drive train.
You can also fit dual 6374 or 6380 on Calibers with this drive system!
The advantages of the gearbox are like what @wafflejock said, no need to worry about the belt. But the advantages of traditional belt drive systems are more. It is cheaper and lighter than gearboxes. Because I just want to install the dual 6374 motor on Calibers, so I designed this gearbox. Although I can solve this problem by just replacing the Calibers, I think there are more ways to install the motor for everyone to choose. I hope that gearbox can create more cool skateboards through your creativity.
Sorry, I use google to translate my English is very poor Morris
I disagree. Safety first. Debris gets stuck in belts and can lock the wheels. I’d prefer not to street my face. Belts are fine, but gears are safer. In more ways than I just described, just one example.
Definitely gonna need closed can motors for this, but the design is looking good.
