Hello All, at long last, my build thread! I’ve been working on this build for the past 4 months, and I have many of you to thank for all of the advice and encouragement you’ve provided. Thanks so much to @longhairedboy @onloop @sl33py @psychotiller @lox897 @lowGuido @King1017 @torqueboards and everyone else that provided their insight!
Specs: 245Kv motor, 8s battery, Vesc from Enertion, wheels and pulleys from Alien Drive Systems, and motor mount from DIY ElectricSkateboard, Gearing is 60T 14T.
And now a ton of pics:
Here you can see the battery alarms inside the enclosure, I left some windows so that I coudl see them without opening the enclosure
I wrapped the motor wire in techwrap. The enclosure is a screw case that I spaypainted.
I’m really enjoying the pneumatic tires… they are great here in my suburban riding situation!
The underside of the board; I used 3M carbon fiber vinyl
I’m using the nunchuck implementation available for VESC for controls, it seems very solid! I used some velcro to attach my arming switch plug onto it so it doesn’t get lost when I’m not riding.
Inside the enclosure; I used Deans connectors and so far they are performing very well, and their size allowed me to keep this enclosure small! 12AWG wire throughout, and a battery arming switch with a resistor serves as my on-off and antispark. VESC takes up almost no room in there!
