Bustin Sportster -- how low did you go

Bustin sportster (e)core + Eboost MKII + boardnamics 220mm Hangers + M¹ Helicals + ABEC11 107s

LG HG2 18650 12s4p + unity + vx2 + kaly 6355

Slowly piecing everything together. Just for fun, I put it together as a drop through and I have a little over 1.7inch /44mm of clearance. It looks like it’s enough. I’ll post more pics as I go. I’m still debating top mount or drop through. Is 1.7in enough for the streets of NYC?




Just as reference, this is what I’m rolling on now.

Penis joke. Also, depends on how much you like getting sprayed by bin juice I suppose?

that looks very bouncy


you should flip your trucks 180 deg if you want the board to turn like normal. c:
(or don’t if you’re into that weird turning behavior lol)

@Mikegt115 Once you do as Simeon instructed (and you should), I’m pretty sure you’re gonna have clearance issues with those gear drives in drop through mounting.

This one is as low a it gets.

After playing around I decided to mount it top mound and it is still my second lowest board.

If you want to have fun with your board and don’t thinking all the time about catching an edge, I would recommend 2-3" of clearance.

Oops…

Yes I mounted them like that because I mounted the gear drive facing the wrong position. I didn’t want to take the gear drives apart again. I just wanted a visual.
So, I guess I’ll stick to top mount.

Thanks!

@jack.luis how low is ur urethane build?

I’d say 1.7 is cutting it too close and you will smack your enclosure on speed bumps and uneven terrain.

I believe your gear drives are mounted the right way (relatively to the hanger), they are almost always mounted inward (motors deckside) otherwise the motors can would hit the kingpin when turning when mounted roadside except in some cases with ultra wide hangers/small cans or non-RKP trucks.

Edit : I see you are using 6355 motors, it’s worth a try for outward mounting, watchout for the kingpin before riding it thought. :sweat_smile:

Just install both trucks the other way and you should be good. Don’t worry dude, we all make some “oopsies”. :smiley:

You should mount the gear drives to the rear. Its not much work

I never hit my enclosure, it’s my motors that are low as shit

ah gotcha

Yes, I wanted them outward. But will see how inward looks.
