I’m working on my next build and want to know what people think if choosing between these two @torqueboards its:
TB DD 75KV with AT adapter when it’s available = $825ish
TB Dual Motor Kit with 218s, 16T pulley, AT 160mm Kit, and (2) 6374 190KV = $746
This build will be on @MarkOneBoards Manta deck with NESE 3D printed battery packs housing Samsumg 30Qs in a 10s4p or 12s4p setup.
This will be my work commuter that needs to handle cobblestone roads and some gravel/dirt paths. So how will the TB DD w/AT wheels compare to the belt drive setup with torque,speed, and handling? I would love experienced builders/riders lay down a pros/cons between these two setups?
Also, being new to living in Germany, I felt violated when I had to pay 80 Euros to customs for @dickyho parts on my first build. So, can I expect the same warm welcome from customs when I order from TB? Please say @torqueboards has an EU distributor!? If not, do I expect a 20% customs charge?
Final build choices:
Board name: Osprey - going with green and blue colors to pay homage to my home town.
Deck: MarkOneBoard’s Manta
Wheels/Motor: TB blue 110s & (2) 6374 190KV motors (if they ever make it through customs)
Trucks/Mounts: Boardnamics adjustable baseplates, 220 hangers, and motor mounts (no problem with customs)
Battery: NESE 10s4p - Samsumg 30Qs
Remote: Hoyt Puck
Enclosure: 3D printed in TPU
