Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

Going round in circles? Here's a thread from a year ago that touched on the workings of Alien ESCs. Makes for some interesting reading.

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

Now you've got me excited! I'm still struggling with cogging on startup with my Alien 150A ESCs on my 4x4 e-MTB. I'd hoped that a motor (6374) per wheel on 10s would deal with the issue but it still remains. Granted, it isn't designed for onroad use (much less inertia to overcome) but I wouldn't min...

Re: Belt drive alternative?

I believe hub motors (and weight sensing) to be the holy grail for commuter e-boards. If correctly applied it should be a more efficient solution than geared drives, allow more natural coasting and look more stealth to boot. Skateboards are susceptible to immense vibration and the load on the motor'...

Looking good. Have you considered keeping the pivots 'naked', it may help prevent any potential binding in tight/hard pivot cups.

Re: Destroyer 12s Urban Racer Build

You can also use silicon sealant to pot electricals, best use neutral cure for electronics to avoid corrosion of components. Tegaderm will allow the silicon to cure and create a smooth surface finish. :idea:

iNsele - honey badger 4x4 eMTB

Filming starts 10mins in. Never stepped on a mountain board before (or snow/surfboard) so set power to 50%. Needs tuning as does my balance and coordination but impressed by the first outing.

Probably cheaper (and better) than other high end precisions. Hopefully in the price range of SurfRodz. Considering the prices people are paying for little machined brackets, starting with a quality truck seems a no-brainer to me.

Soon to be released, could this be the best engineered longboard truck yet (not including PVD, GOG and other high end cone crushers)? To be released in 170, 180 and 190mm hanger lengths and drop-up (Pogo) baseplates with angled risers. sabretrucks http://www.sabretrucks.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/0...
