I’m new to this forum but I’ve been gobbling up information on here over the past several weeks and I’m ready to start compiling the parts for my first build.
First, a little about my aspirations for this build. I live in SoCal, near da beach and this board will really mostly be for fun and getting around Venice Beach and Santa Monica. There are a few hills in Santa Monica specifically and I’d like to be able to get up them without issue (weight ~180lbs) but the area is mostly flat. I’m editing this top post as I go and adding links as I purchase & identify items I want for my own sanity and tracking.
My main goals for this build are: -Easy Cruising and effortless carving (I’ve been snowboarding for 15 years) -Reliability ~15 Mile Range (down to beach, cruise along water, and back) -Safe battery chemistry (thus the Li-Ion) -20mph top speed -mellow hill climb abilities
-Mono Drive-train- -Enertion R-Spec 6372 190kv (purchased) http://goo.gl/atROyd -Enertion Motor Mount (purchased) http://goo.gl/IaVYtl -Enertion VESC Platinum (purchased) -SpaceCell 10s3p (purchased) http://goo.gl/M22I7d

Should be just what I need:
Thanks to all who helped along the way. Now we wait for parts.
