First post, be nice
Reading for a while, great resource here and I have been inspired. I have an electric longboard. To be fair, it was an afternoon project with a decent longboard and a kids toy. No speed controller, just a motor, lead acid battery and a switch. It is (was) pretty awful. With the motor disconnected, the board is a pleasure to ride
The trucks, mounts wheels and drivetrain are good, so I am going for an upgrade.
I got (waiting for it all to arrive)
Arduino, wii wireless nunchuck, wiichuck adapter.
Red brick 125a esc
Zippy 5000mah 20c 3s (x2)
But then, I came home from a barbecue and beers, went on ebay and bought this before I stumbled to bed:

My electrical knowledge is poor, I am building this for fun from the internet tutorials as something to do.
I am pretty sure I have the right bits, just the motor I am unsure on. I THINK (but in no way am sure) that from what I can see, this motor is pretty high torque, which is good? There seems to be little on it. It's brushless and 24v?
If I type the motor model into Google, I see its used on a commercial ebike, so my logic says I must be close?
If the motor is good, my only other challenge is getting the toothed cog onto it from the old motor to run the belt. As I haven't received it yet, I will just have to wait. Are they glued, or welded, or screwed on?
So thoughts? Zoom, crawl, or bang?
