This build is a rebuild/reimagining of my Glory build after I had some issues with my battery pack, I had BMS issues and have since rebuilt the pack for use in another board.
I kept the motors, motor mounts, wheels, pulleys and belts…everything else is new. The concept for this build is a top tier daily driver. I didn’t want incredible speed or massive range, decent range and comfort is what I’m looking for. It’s like the Cadillac AWD level of comfort and sleek performance of a Charger R/T in an esk8.
I’m running 6374 190kv motor at 10s because it’s the least troublesome and most reliable setup with a VESC platform, has tons if torque and at 4p lots of range. I’m running FOC Hybrid mode for startup boost and quiet at low speeds, I find that road noise cancels out the noise of BLDC at higher speeds for the most part.
I had the board running thursday of last week, but have made a couple of programming changes and swapped out the truck hardware for 10-24 bolts and added the X-Braces.
I can’t say enough of the (@treenutter) Bludgeon, this is a beautiful deck with the standard Red Ember level quality…lush is all I can say. As always, the (@psychotiller) 6 shooters are unbeatable. The size and profile make them the perfect pneumatic for the esk8 platform. I’m crazy addicted to Surf Rodz TKP’s, they are solid and carvey beasts. The (@JLabs) 10s4p 30Q pack is my favorite, it makes the VESC/FOCBox setup pretty much dummy proof and you can ride as hard or lazy as you want without worry. The (@torqueboards) TB 6374 motors are brick houses, never have any trouble and always just go go go.
I ordered a complete and a kit. The complete is on the way, the kit still a ways off, but I’m looking forward to it. I printed the parts out of the weekend just to get a look at the form factor. Its a little larger than I first thought, but I like the position of the throttle a lot.
