due to my budget constraints, I am limited to a cheap Zebra Kiteboard right now. It’s basically a long longboard truck with a standard Kingpin. (Pictures attached). I machined a motor adapter and reused some existing kit to attach a belt drive. However the steering is quite stiff. I managed to get easier steering my loosening the kingpin nut as far as possible which gives the whole system a lot of play and makes it wobbly af. Also compensating the torque steering I get from my single motor setup is very straining for my feet. (Leaning forwards constantly).
Is there any way to make the steering easier without increasing the play? Different bushings maybe? Has anyone ever worked with one of those? Yes I know the best option is to invest in a set of Trampa spring trucks, but I dont have that kind of money right now
