Few weeks ago I completed my first ever DIY build and here I would like to list my new doubts/problems:
I made the deck several years ago with birch sheets and a fiberglass kit (for longboarding).
I really like the aesthetic result but it’s extremely stiff which makes the rides quite uncomfortable also because of the roads of my Italian suburban town that aren’t great.
I was thinking about buying a deck from a company producing esk8 also replacing the enclosures according to the new deck. I checked the deck for the WowGo 3X and its enclosures where I’ll fit my electronics and my battery and they seem pretty good.
Do you think is it a good idea?
The trucks are from the TorqueBoards Single Motor Mechanical Kit V6 and I can’t turn sharp as other builds that I see online. Also, the bushings make a plasticky noise as you can hear in the short video below (as well as the turning angles).
At the beginning I had the belt touching the wheel. Then I moved the motor’s pulley towards the motor itself, now it’s better even if I’m not sure if they touch each other a little bit yet. Is it good the room between the two?
I’m using the same combo. Most comfortable ride I’ve ever had. Beware that the deck is Crazy flexy especially if you’re heavy like me. Still doesn’t stop me from going 40km/h +. The deck has boosted levels of flex.
Happy to hear that! I weight about 80kg, should not be a problem.
Yes, that’s true. In your pictures they seem not to be the linked enclosures, am I wrong?
One question: how much space there’s in the Wowgo 3X ESC enclosure? I should put a Flipsky Mini FSESC4.20 , the anti-spark switch and the loop-key switch. There’s enough space?
Most of them are just dirt or little cosmetic scratched that hurt the “paint” from debris. The scratches on the bottom portion of the case are not from me, they’re from the previous owner, he must’ve hit something not sure. I have not yet scraped it anywhere.
not at all. Also since i weigh more than you i bet there’s little chance for you to bottom out more than i do (which i don’t lol)
