I’m beginning to order and gather all my parts together. I’ve got a few questions that I’m looking for some input on, but here’s what I’ve got so far.
Deck: Blank from CustomSkateboards which I’ll paint to look like this when I’m done running wires and such.Caliber II 10"/50° - Raw Wheels: Blue Flywheel Clones w/ ABEC 9 Bearings
Mount: Custom Mount that I’ll machine myself. Homemade, modified version of @psychotiller’s mount.
Motors (dual): 6354 Turingy Aerodrive sk3 260kv Battery: 10s4p 18650 Pack. I’ll be making this one myself. Still debating which exactly which cells and BMS to go with. ESC: VESC. Also building myself
I do have a few questions that I’m hoping someone can give me some insight on. First, I’d love to do dual 6364 sk3 motors, but I’ve read that they’re too large for trucks smaller than 195mm. I did some CAD mock-ups (using the measurements on HobbyKing) and while it may be tight (If i give 11mm on each side from the face of the motor mount to the edge of the truck, it only leaves a few millimeters in between the motors), I think it may work. Here’s the diagram. I’m worried I’m missing something obvious. Anything blatantly stand out? (Besides the fact that Caliber II’s are 184mm, but 4mm would just give a little extra breathing room)
Second, if I can’t do the dual 6364 above, I think I’ll be doing the 6354 listed up top. I also came across some things saying that 260kv not only wasn’t ideal, as stated here, but would actually cause problems (here). Can anyone elaborate on this?
Besides those, I just need to make some decisions on a controller (I’m between the NunchuckRF and the GT2B badwolf mod) and mounting (I’m thinking about vacuum forming…)
Anyways, any thoughts are appreciated, and thanks for all the fantastic info I’ve found on this forum!
