First Build, $1500 limit, suggestions!?

If you have no knowledge of batteries don’t build it yourself lol. No fire is the best kinda fire if ya know what I mean

6380s are very heavy lol. Solid like 5lbs just in motors let alone everything else

I suppose I could have it pre-built into the enclosure? All I would have to do is hook everything up when it arrives.

Yup @eBoosted will take good care of you in that aspect of battery building

Ooof, yeah. In that case I will probably go with two 6374’s then.

Do you have a soldering iron with you? You will probably have to do a bit when that time comes.

Here’s some miscellaneous stuff that you should purchase

Black 12AWG silicone wire
Red 12AWG silicone wire
XT90 connectors
Heat shrink for wires

Might cut it close on that 1500$ price range. If your willing to be flexible go for it !

Yeah cause that’s a 1000$ just in deck enclosure and battery

400 on just motors on a 1500 build that’s a big ask. I have 84’s on my current build so I am a fan. 84 is only 25% more torque but you have to scale up your battery and ESC. You can’t max out a 6354 with a makerx dual.

Do you have a protective gear budget? $300-500 for that atleast.

I can build my own battery and that battery will cost me nearly 600 to make. That’s more like a 2k+ build. It’s all primo stuff. No garbage in your choices.

When did I ever say to spend 400$ on motors :smile: @Movation
