Awesome build there~ btw what is the wheel size your using, seems hugh xD ? and your using a hobbyking Motor Mount? does it fit a 5065 well?

Hi, they’re 97mm flywheel clones.

Only two of the motor holes line up with the Racestar 5065 motor, other 50mm motors have a different hole pattern though. I think it’s made for 63mm motors.

@darkkevind would that race star motor work for a small mono drive for an adult sized human? Or should i go a bit bigger?

What’s the riders weight? I’ve used this motor for a single motor drive. It works, but it’s not very efficient, mine gets very hot. I would only use for bagel runs.

If I were building a board for a lightweight pre-teen, this is a great motor.

Thanks. Was planning on putting it on my build. I’m 185 lbs so I’m going to go anther route. It’s a shorter range build, but hate to run the motor ragged. No need for undue stress, just liked the shape. Plan on mounting to indy 215’s (tkp) which tend to sit lower to the ground and didn’t want to reverse mount and impede the sweet kicktail. I’ll just use a 6355 i have lying around.

Another budget motor option is the Keda 190kv. I’ve also used this on a single drive and it’s much more efficient than the racerstar. Also its mounting holes are compatible with most mounts.

I’d go with the 6355

Ya I’m defo gonna make that work. Like the build BTW. I have a little dude (11mos) and i truly hope I’ll be building him a little rip machine in a few years.
