Planning a rear mount, longboard… More for torque than speed, and on-road urethane wheels, no offroad…
I have seen plenty of pics of rear mount motor rigs, but not found (yet) a build guide for one. But that’s not my real question… it is more whether I should be looking for a square section truck hanger, which might resist motor mount rotating, or are round section truck hangers (like Paris) good enough to resist motor brackets from turning. The reason I ask is that I already have a set of Paris longboard trucks and I’d just as soon use them if they will be adequate.
If you are of the belief that round section trucks are risky (like Paris trucks), which ones would you recommend for a rear motor build?
Remember, I’m an old guy not obsessed with speed. I just want a torquey build to lug me uphill so I can carve/surf my way back down.
