Long time lurker, first time posting.
I'm putting together a single motor, 8S board.
300kv 50mm motor
Castle 85 HV esc
8S 4000mAh and 8S 4700mAh (I fly RC stuff as well)
Wiiceiver & Nunchuck
Here is my main question, what speed and gearing might I look at for this? I'm actually building more of a single wheel, modular power pod (still in design phase) and not directly powering the board wheels. So I'm still choosing the wheel diameter but likely 78-84mm. My current board wheels are actually 73 but that's not really an issue for this. I already have a 40 tooth drive pulley with 9mm belt. I'm thinking 15 tooth pinion but not sure based on lack of experience. Don't need 30+ mph, maybe 19-23.
Thanks in advance!!
