Re: Trampa Street Carver Ultimate

Guy, nowind, and others, any comments on how this board rides? It sure looks cool, but I'm interested in hopes that it rides smoother over rough surfaces than a stiff longboard.

Re: Thermoforming Kydex

Am I right in thinking this stuff is more flexible than ABS? If so, it seems like a great option for enclosures for flexible decks!

Re: E-Skate New Build, Need a triple Check on the build

That motor kv, gear ratio, and wheel size will give you a top speed close to 40mph. I second Wee's recommendation for a 6374 motor at a lower kv. For reference, from my board at 12S, I get 25 mph on level ground from a 149kv motor, with 15:36 gears and 76 mm wheels. Given your speed goals, I think y...

Re: Loaded Tesseract Lightweight

I did not say that I wanted more torque. What I meant was that the 6374 170KV was really good with plenty of torque. That is why I wish to test it against a 240KV motor - to see the torque difference and how noticeable, if at all, it is. (At speed well below maximum) Basically I want to see which m...

Re: Motor Kv & Calculated speeds

Question 1: How well do these calculations hold up for real world e-longboards with a load? I recently ordered the 149kv SK3 from Turnigy and the calculations @ 10s with a gear reduction of 3, give you still decent speeds (13m/s -> 29mph). But how do these numbers work out in the real world? You le...

Re: 190KV or 230KV For Quad Loangboard Setup?

Hi Holy smoke mate, what do you want 4 motors for? 2 x 63mm motors is already a beast, 4 x 63mm motors is just overkill. You will not be gaining any top speed, only acceleration (if one can handle it) or serious hill climbing ability. I could possibly understand 4 x hub motors but 4 geared motors? ...

Re: 190KV or 230KV For Quad Loangboard Setup?

12s with 240kv is not a good idea. The kv is too high for this voltage. You should either go 10s or use a lower kv motor. I agree with this. 240 kv x 48V = 11,520 romantic, which is well over what Vedder concludes is optimal. The 190 kv would have a maximum romantic of 9,120, which is very close to...

after plundering my topspeed for trampa and tesseract, I finally also stole the 90mm abec 75A to replace my kegels. kegels are really awesome on smooth tar, but otherwise the flywheels are just MUCH smoother. :) Something about that 75a ABEC11 compound.

Re: SK3 6364 vs 6374 for SIngle???

I'm using two 6S Rhino 4900mah 20C batteries and a VESC. I set the current limit on the VESC at the motor's 80A rating, but I don't have an ammeter or watt meter, so I don't know what it's actually using. FWIW, I rarely find myself using full "throttle." Do you mind if I ask what batteries you are u...

Has anyone tried a 6374 single motor set up at 12s? if so what gearing did you use? I wonder what kind of performance you would get with this. Right now I am running a 6374 at 6s and 18/36 gearing, it does a pretty good job, descent speed, can climbs hills, but I a have noticed that it puts a lot o...

Re: SK3 6364 vs 6374 for SIngle???

Quite a few voices are in the opinion that lower KV, in combination with higher voltage is the way to go. I wonder if this is the heart of the debate? The SK3 6374 192kv motor at 6S will only spin 22.2*192 = 4,262rpm, while it would spin 44.4*192 = 8,525 at 12S. So, it's really only at 12S that the...

good build how much do you think you spent? how does it feel to brake at 30mph with one wheel? Thanks. I haven't done a careful tally, but I probably have about $1,000 in this build. The only issue I find with braking (at any speed) is there just isn't as much traction with one wheel as with two. P...

Unfortunately, these particular

Very nice build. I'd be very interested in hearing your measured total range and top speed.
