Sooo, quite a while has past since my first intend to build my own esk8:
Had a very steep learning curve almost trashing my battery pack (https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/battery-pack-help-needed-aka-i-messed-up-tell-me-how-much/21955) and actually trashing a VESC on the way. I also changed quite a few of my original build part plans.
I got all needed parts. I just need a few pointers on how to assemble it all in the best way.
Help needed: (thank you in advance!!!)
How can I best glue/attach the battery pack and VESC to the enclosure?
I glued the motor pulley to the shaft. Now i noticed that the belt is too close to the motor mount screws and is rubbing a bit on them. So I need to get the pulley back off with a heat gun. BUT I have a carbon motor mount. Can I just go ahead and do it, or do i have to take precaution as to not melt the mount?
Here’s the list:
Deck I had a Jucker Hawaii Skatesurfer (https://www.juckerhawaii.com/JUCKER-HAWAII-longboard-komplett-SKATESURFER). But when I did my first test ride it felt really, really unsave and unpleasent. Also the deck had to much flex for the battery pack. So, that’s why I went to my local skateshop and got an awesome Rayne Otherside 38" https://rayne.com/longboards/freeride/otherside-v2-longboard-migration/ (discounted since it’s an older version) I just now tried it without any electronics and that was amazing. Can’t wait to ride it when electrified.
VESC esk8.de VESC (I actually went through an eskating.eu VESC)
Battery Got mine from @fedestanco through this group buy (https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/also-usa-10s4p-samsung-25r-190/12458) It is very sturdy and surviced my stupidity as mentioned above. So, that’s great!

Wheels Had some Flywheels 90mm. MBS All Terrain are on their way. Let’s hope that the risers give enough clearance for them
Remote I actually have two. I was part of the never ending group buy just for a Mini Remote and bought a Hobbyking GT2B since i thought I would never get my mini.

I think I am too heavy (90 kg) for 14t/36t. For me it’s to slow at the beginning and to fast when speed increases.
