I decided i want to build an electric board. I have been looking at many different set ups. Looking to build my own battery thinking inboard L-ion without BMS, instead use a cell balancing charger. Below board Vescs, cell loggers, power switch, wiring…etc. I’m thinking if I can get my hands on a carbon GT deck I’d like to have the cell loggers pointing up through the top of the deck cover plate. Undecided of whether i will use a single motor or dual.
Anybody know how many 18650 L-ions fit inside GT deck, or have measurements of battery/components compartment?
Anyone know where i can get some motors that will hold up to speeds in excess of (35-40mph+)?
I don’t think the vesc can handle more than 12s. For your speed requirements though I did a quick calc on the esk8 calc using a 170kv motor on 12s. This is using psychotillers 6" pneumatics and his 42t wheel pulley. It’s crazy!!
Sorry I didn’t really answer the question. You can buy quality motors from any of these people. The 14s thing isn’t really going to work as far as I know unless you want to exceed motor and vesc limits and make magic smoke.
