Gear Ratio

Post by malik98 » Oct 22 2016 12:36am

Hello,
I'm building my 2nd E-Board and want to make sure I get the gear ratio right on this one.
My equipment will be as follows:
Motor: SK3 149kv
ESC: HobbyWing FlyFun 100A
Battery: 6S 5,000mAh
Wheels: 83mm FlyWheels
I'm thinking of a 22/36 gear ratio with a max speed of around 18-20 Mph.
Is this too high and will it drain my battery, or kill my motor prematurely?

Cheers,
Malik R.

Hey Malik,

i´m more in Mountainboards but IMO 22/36 is uncommon and sounds a way to long for me.

Thx for the reply,
The more I thought about it the weirder it sounded. Ive red where people got 18mph with 16/36 or 25mph with 22/28 because of the low kV.
Would a 18/36 be a more reasonable option?
