I want to get these hub motors. Plz helppppppp!!!
They do come up for sale from time to time, best of luck on your search!
Check out jay mc coy on FB he’s selling a set🤙🏾
can I have a link?
It’s A closed fb group (ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD BUY and Sell USA). Your better off messaging him the name I gave you. It takes forever to get approved to enter the group.
This forum is much better than facegram or instabook or snapspace or mychat
I think Jay is selling a Torque Drive.
which drive are you looking to get? SD? TD? or unreleased XL?
Looking for the TD - I sent him a message on FB hope he responds
I have brand new torque drives for sale. One used set, lightly. And one brand new.
How much for a set?
@Wraith this might be for you
Thanks for that! although after a good amount of time reading about pros cons of direct drive over satellite configurations(and even getting abit into some theory which made my head spin) I decided to go gear drive
While I still like direct drive I wanted to go with something that could go uphills well and use pneumatics(without going 4wd)
Maybe you’d be interested in picking these up?
Haha nah man, I’m designing my own version of the carvon dd’s for a mini commuter board
woah I’d be keen to see how that develops! I’ll keep an eye out should you put a build log of it
I’ll tag you in it if I go through with the plan, I’ve got to do some more research on the trucks first through, custom or tb218’s? I can’t decide because that also defines the size of the motor
I do feel like custom would allow more freedom but be more costly as many others have done so like @torqueboards @fliess. Actually come to think about it, since @torqueboards is building custom trucks(though I believe its slightly modified) for direct drive, maybe you could do find something to work on around those lines?
Actually that sounds like a good idea, I might be able to get some Tb DD trucks
Yeah I’ve seen a photo of it but no word if they’ll be sold separately. Its got some heat sink fins towards the center with a over all slimmer hangar where the drives sit presumably. Would be nice for them to offer the trucks stand alone
Yes it would
