If you wanna try VESC despite the stories, note that it had become a lot more user friendly now with VESC-Tool! Auto detection helps a lot to get adequate parameters for your motor.
Yep, gonna have to either cut the frames or adapt a sub frame to it! I've ridden many miles with 2 wheels per skate (analog) to directly feel the difference versus all wheels mounted, really IMHO it is better to keep the middle wheels if you can!
I'll be fabricating a frame for larger wheels.
I skate slalom so the idea of losing the middle wheels is daunting too since I'm only on my middle wheels most of the time.
I'm betting 2 outer wheels only has horrible maneuverability.
Can't help it though, since I'm going the old fashioned mechanical drive train route, I need a ton of space to mount the components.
This is likely going to turn out as a personal use project, commercially it's looking like no way...
This is the beauty of DIY projects though, I make what I want, no matter how much it snubs convention.
I'll post another render soon, I'm on my 3rd design iteration and it's looking like some kind of a motorbike-ish death machine.
Hastily, I've sent my clutch off for fabrication, I was planning to make a 3D printed proof of concept first but my friend who does 3d printing quoted me 1/4 the cost of what my fabricator quoted to make it out of steel, inclusive of latter adjustments to improve free running tolerances.
