This is my first build after riding around on an Ownboard for a couple of months in the Pacific North West . I mainly use my board for commute. It rides OK as I already upgraded to a DB CoreFLex 3 . This board is stable at speeds <22 miles but after that it starts to get wobbly. The only way to prevent this is to use tighten my bushings which are already way too tight.
I also loose out on maneuverability and turning because of the bushings being too tight and my current deck does not have a kicktail.
After reading about Falcon Evo I thought that this is the board for me. The wedge design is amazing. I do have concerns about the weight though.
I am going to use the @LEVer Carvon trucks with some angled risers to prevent any wheel bite and the enclosure hitting the ground. I am basically building a Exo 2WD with VESC and 5P instead of 3P.
My question is that I am ~180 lbs and there are a lot of hills where I live so will the recommended 30 A setting with @psychotiller 10S5P and 97MM flywheels give me the torque I need? I don’t really care about speed as long as I have good acceleration.
