Sorry for no pictures yet. I was hoping to have the motor plates done before posting pictures so you could see the completed drive truck.
I have the evening at home tomorrow night. I am hoping to fabricate the motor plates then and post pictures. Actually, I will post a comprehensive step-by-step picture log of the entire process of bringing raw aluminum blocks to completed parts.
I have one question for you guys, though;
What wheelbase would you recommend? The motors will be in front of the rear truck. The deck will be dropped. So, the rear portion of the deck will need to be relatively narrow to clear the motors at full lean. So, this limits foot space. Therefore, I would like the wheelbase to be somewhat on the long side. But, I want it to still corner well.
Anyway, I could go as short as 29 inches, or as long at 36 inches (though I know 36 is really long).
What are your thoughts?
Oh, also, wait till you see the deck. It is more of a chassis than a deck in that I am TIG welding it together from 6061 box section aluminum tube with decking on top. This will give me a strong deck with lots of room to hide components between aluminum tubes. It will also allow me to shape the deck in any way I want. For instance, I will be arching it up a touch to clear the rear wheels and motors at lean and I will be giving it varying concave based on foot location and other factors.
I am thoroughly enjoying this build!
1% of the world's population can think "Outside the box". The rest are firmly stuck within the box. Where are you?
