Will My Build Work? Skateshred Deck | Caliber II Trucks | 149kv 6374 Motor | Ebay Esc | 83mm Wheels | 2x 5s1p 5800mah 30c batteries

Hi guys, After many hours of research, I have picked out my parts. I have already ordered some parts, but I just needed some feedback on a few final parts. Don’t mind the different connectors, I bought like 10 pairs of xt60s and a xt90 antispark pair. Any feedback will help! Thanks!

What sized wheel pulley will you be using because a 20t motor pulley might be a bit big. Most people use a 15-16t pulley so the gear ratio is around 2.2-2.4. Other wise it should work fine although just make sure to put a heat sink on the esc

k. ill look for a smaller pulley and I have some heatsinks on the way. Thanks!

No problem. If you are using the lower kv motor like 149 it should be ok. I actually run my board on a 2:1 ratio with 190kv but I’m really light and there is no hills here

What are your plans for charging?

Those calibers are not II’s. Turnigy motor mount only works on square trucks. Unless you want to modify your trucks, don’t buy it. 3d printed might work in beginning but it will ware down from vibrations.

Good catch on the trucks…helps if you click the link to look :yum:

@Sk8Board here’s some green 44° 2s https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NY4278C/ref=twister_B00NY426YW?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

I would also highly recommend this pulley kit, it includes a motor and wheel pulley, 15mm 15/36t and belts, only $36 shipped


I have a lipo charger with a parallel board

Well, that was close. Thanks for catching that. Ill get the ones @scepterr put on. Thanks!
