I am in the initial stages of assembling my build http://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/snappy-chariot-jet-hot-potato-deck-caliber-ii-50-190kv-r-spec-6372-spacecell/4267/9
I’ve set up a 1/2" riser combo ( 1/4" rubber Khiro and 1/4 hard plastic). I took the Jet Hot Potato out for a push and even with the risers managed to get some wheel bite. I am 195lbs and the trucks were pretty loose so I wasn’t totally surprised. Also I’ve shifted the wheel base in about 2" in past factory mounts which has taken about 3 mm off the wheel well clearance.
Where I am a bit perplexed is in mounting the Enertion mount I’ve noticed that the R Spec will also be having clearance issues under the deck. Sitting straight on the trucks I currently have about 12mm clearance between the motor and the deck.
What are other people’s running clearance on this sort of setup? Any observations based on the photos would be appreciated.
Edit: i wonder if it’s a simple as the 1/2 micro drop causing the problems? How much clearance are others running?
