Got a bunch of spare shit laying around, and wanted to get some things ready for my killshot deck anyways, so I slapped this together for now. Obviously will be ditching the garbage ass diyeboard battery when the deck comes. Got a 12s4p 30q waiting for it.
Dickyho At Kit, (wheels, tires, mounts, gears, crossbar) $161 used from @ZachTetra
2x Tb Vesc, Nano remote, and random ass enclosure from @Frankenknolly $120
And then I used the Arbor Axis Deck, and bullshit battery from my spare board.
Actually worked well for my friends to use. Already has a bunch of holes in it, had the deck itself for close to 10 years. Looking at diyeboards prices we will say $200 for the battery, enclosure.
Tore out the diyeboards esc, resoldered the bullet connectors on the TB vescs to 5.5mm bullet, extended the power wires and changed them to xt-60, then picked up a parallel loopkey from @hyperion1 because I’m now out of connectors and that was honestly faster and cheaper, and mostly because im lazy. $22.
Later I swapped out the motor gears for torqueboards 16T, much better. $32 I think
Picked up 2 sealed maytech 6355 200kvs from on the forum for $200, and swapped them out for the 190kv 6374 flux drives on my street build. Don’t remember what I paid for those. We will say $240.
Total (minus deck) = $775
Factor in killshot and 12s4p (will update) $1,125
Put the drive train together yesterday morning.
Last night plugged everything in, heatshrinked the phase wires, and programmed the vescs.
Only running 40a battery max because the battery is garbage, and -4 regen.
Through some crude foam padding and a light coat of silione around the loopkey areas in the Vesc enclosure today. Sorry, no pics, was in a hurry to ride.
Then crudely drilled some holes and mounted things half ass for now.
Needless to say, it’s nothing special. But it works, and it works well. I went for a 6 mile ride today before swapping motor pulleys from 12t to 16t and it could bring me up the steep hills around me, even in the grass (rough though). I weigh 180lbs. Topped out around 25mph surprisingly. Rode again before posting this and 16t feels MUCH better.
I really only wanted to post this to show the power of budget parts. It will evolve and I will update it.
