Why wasn't it fitting right? Is it due to the holes on that pulley that you have? Would be nice if they fit lol. I actually only designed those for ABEC 11 Flywheels.
For mine, I'm probably going to 3D print a hub centric adapter and use a few different polycarbonate pulley wheels in different sizes. 158mm tire, 280kv 50mm SK3 motor, 6S, 40T/16T would be about 40 to 44mph. Although, not sure how the starting torque will be. Will definitely have to try it out. If not a 45/50T perhaps.
The 44 I bought from you has 6 holes and the wheel has eight spokes (holes in larger pattern as well)
I used a a big washer and drilled 3 holes for the pulley and 4 holes for the wheel. I put some barrel nuts between the spokes and screwed it all together with 6mm hardware.
Think its gonna work! I got it all centered up. Cost 4 bucks in hardware.
*the wheels have a large hole for the valve stem allowing the tube to bubble though...I bought a few rubber washers to put around the valve stem inside the hubs. That closed the gap.
