Arbor 40" with 150mm evolve pneumatics. Started my second build.

After my first build that serves me great I want something that can go a bit off road. Not roots ‘n’ rocks off road. Just park paths where my wife can ride her Mi scooter and I find hard to follow with thane 97mm wheels. Mostly city riding.

What I love about my first build is that it is just 8.5kg, have similar range as Mi scooter, goes uphill easily (I am 80kg), and can go faster than I am comfortable. Some scientific specs :wink:

Few things I have or waiting to be delivered and for few things I am still not sure what to choose.

Deck

Arbor 40". Gift from my wife.

Wheels

Evolve hubs and Evolve 150mm pneumatics.
TEKTON™ 7-BALL XT™ STEEL BUILT-IN BEARINGS

Mounts

Enclosure

Maybe temporary but it just fits so good and it’s so cheap. I actually overpayed it in local store. Almost 9€.

Hanger

FatBoy Solid CNC Machined Hanger for Caliber II Baseplate

Baseplate

Caliber II baseplates 50/44

?? 2 x Flipsky Battle Hardened 6374 3500W 980g
?? 140KV
?? 190KV
?? 8mm round shaft
?? 10mm D-shaft

Battery

Samsung 30Q with printed holders which take a lot of precious space
?? 10s5p
?? 12s4p if enough space?
?? 10s6p if enough space?

BMS

Charge only
?? Daly

Remote

?? Thumb control

ESC

?? GO-FOC DV6 3-12S dual 100A

Or save a bit by geting
Flipsky Dual FSESC6.6 from first 10s4p build and get
GO-FOC DV4 BASE ON VESC4 for first build.

Any tip appreciated.

*Flipsky ESC, motors, and bluetooth served me well so far.

Go bn270
You might get wheel bite I think with my axis with TB218 on 6x2clevers my back foot was right on the wheels

190kv
Definitely bang for your buck :call_me_hand:

I was really hoping that 220mm are wide enough with this board and wheels combination. 270mm just looks too wide. Is there such a thing as too wide? Getting 220mm from @Anubis while they are still in stock seemed like a nice option since I am in Sweden. And how about 230mm or 240mm FatBoy hangers? Price is holding me back from those but I might consider it.

The only reason why I am considering 6454 is because pair of those is almost 1 kg lighter (980g x 2 - 540g x 2 = 880g).

You can try 220 :thinking: or you can do 270 in the back and
220 up front or maybe @mackann has some old stuff laying around :star_struck: he’s the El jefe DUDE of esk8 in Sweden :call_me_hand: good luck watching this thread
(3dser stuff is the best in the market but you need gears he doesn’t make clamps :cry: for belt drive motors)

Decided to risk and try to fit Whooshboards mounts on Fatboy 230mm. Updated post images with new parts.

Motor mounts arrived both for this one and my old build :slight_smile:

It seems that caliber clamps have a pretty good grip on Fatboy hanger. Nothing moves. I might try to add some extra support on the curved side though.

love the raw fat boys can’t wait to see it all mounted up on the board :call_me_hand:

Curious why you didn’t do drop through, did you have wheel bite?

Might just be my bias towards drop through haha

I am still gathering parts so not much decisions are made yet. So I might go drop through. I just wanted to see the board with wheels mounted. But I should mount drop through to test wheel bite. Currently busy trying to remove old motor mounts and motor pulleys from my first build.

And the hummie is kydex from John @hummieee



I really like how it molds to the board Don’t know on longevity yet but really like Kydex for the money
But the best is fiberglass I would hit up @BigBen he might have something that will fit
I know the axis Is pretty flat with a little bit of (concave)arch on each side so it shouldn’t be that hard to find a enclosure just measure to make sure

Yes if it works you’ll like it :sunglasses:
Plus I feel more control when I’m in drop through mode
I AM ONE WITH THE BOARD :vulcan_salute: :pray:

I usually mount these clamps rotated 90 degrees compared to how you mounted them. That way they have more clearance to the road :slightly_smiling_face:

This was just testing the fit and photoshoot :slight_smile:
I will make sure to rotate them once I have motors.

That’s beautiful!

He must have a huge vacuum table. That seems like a much quicker process than fiberglass…
