Re: Opinion question?

Speed is nice, range is critical IMO. for non metric folks (just us in the US) 30kmh speed is 18mph (pretty damn fast on a board) 30kmh - 18mph 35kmh - 21mph Range 12km(7.5mi)-15km(9.3mi) 20km(12.4mi) I think a minimum range of 10mi is my requirement, or easily swappable batteries. a top speed aroun...

Re: Brushless Motor Dynamometers?

there is some logging in VESC you can look at. Alternatively you can look at eagletree logger. It will give you some of the power and voltage curves, but maybe not exactly what you are looking for. Simplified - i've also run some of the power analyzers (edit: Watt Meters) that show mAh consumed, Wat...

Re: Truck Modification for Enertion Nylon Pulley

Hmm, I consider any skipping of the belt to be a Very Bad Thing so I make sure mine are tight enough to never skip. When I first had my board and was more slack with keeping the belt tensioned (lol), the belt skipping always precipitated a belt failure, since the shock loads from skipping are enoug...

Re: Need ideas for a non-invasive battery mount on eboard!

i like the industrial 3m velcro. Super super strong hold. I also capture a small velcro band (usually used for wire management) under/between the deck and velcro and then up and around the battery as backup hold just in case. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kPs33sPKzlw/Vb_dcirbVwI/AAAAAAAAlIA/NzR...

Re: Truck Modification for Enertion Nylon Pulley

I'm running a Nylon wheel pulley on my GF's board (9mm wide). It's holding up OK. It does click/skip more than an aluminum. For her lighter weight and top speed of around 8mph (not kidding - she likes to go SLOW) - it works. For me - i would stick with aluminum personally. Less expensive - definitel...

Re: Question for a Heavy Rider

RazzyT - seriously i would stick to 15mm if you are doing only one motor. You could add another diagonal drive to the front later when you have $ for the upgrade. You most likely will not be able to fit dual 15mm wide dual rear motors/pully. I barely squeezed the dual 5065 on Paris 195 trucks with 5...

Re: [Help] VESC stopped working..

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the DRV error is *usually* hardware failure. You could try resoldering the DRV8302 chip in case it wasn't fully connected... but most likely you need to buy another 8302 chip ($6'ish) and replace it. I had one fail on me and this was the error and fix. HTH - GL!

Re: Loaded Tesseract Lightweight

Thoughts on the flex issue - can you solidly mount the centerline bolt, and oval out the front and back bolt holes in your cover? It would let it move a bit perhaps at the bolt hole when it flexes?

Re: Just almost finished my electric longboard. Battery blew

Battery looks fine. Where are you located? Maybe someone local to you can take a look and double check. Definitely post some more pics so we can look at how everything is connected/wired up. Also - what's your battery voltages per cell - either a battery alarm/tester or multi-meter to check each. GL!

Tacon bigfoot also is a great one i've heard (have 2 waiting to try). torqueboards/DIYes motors, or Enertion R Spec motors also - can't go wrong. why only 6s? what ESC are you going to use?
