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