    Hobbyking x-car 120a brushless car esc (sensored/sensorless) Not my prefered esc but I need to make up money somewhere. The motor handles up to 12s or 44.4 volts but I am only using one 20000mah 6s or 22.2 volt battery.

    Also, do you know any videos on youtube that could help in general.

    Enertion it is! Thanks

    Thanks so much! So I want the most teeth on the smaller pulley in contact with the belt at every given time (to prevent slippage). So I want the largest pulley possible but not to big because of rocks and all that stuff.

    No problem with the late reply. I wouldn't consider it late anyway :) Is it possible to have a mix of both? I feel I have a light understanding of the gear ratios. I think thats just the ratio of teeth on one gear and the other. So in my case the one gear would have 14 teeth and the other would have 40. Or the one would have 7 and the other would have 20. Still not sure and I think I'm still far from understanding the full concept.The pulley belt tooth thing I haven't understood as much as the gear ratio concept.

    Change of plan: now im also looking at the enertion motor. (Not sure sure which motor to use, the hobby king or the enertion brand. Im thinking enertion is higher quality.) Why do I always have to look at the nice, more expensive motors?? Would this motor work in ny build?

    Im going think out loud here. So the radius of the wheel is 40mm so if I want a clearance of 1-2cm off the ground the pulley will have to be no more in 60-40cm diameter?Im also planning on using .25in or .13in risers/shock pads. 13/100in is 3.3mm so thats not very sufficient or noticable. 1/4in is .635mm which is more significant so I think this may be better (again not positive xD) Which ever one you think will work best ill use.I also think I may need a diagram if you dont mind.Also, am I correct saying the pulley is near the wheel and the gear on the motor? Do you know of any pulleys/wheels I could use in my situation?Thanks for all the help so far!

    Thanks for all the help! So the gear for the wheel will be the same size with less teeth (maybe 30-35). Sorry for all the questions, Im new to this whole thing

    Thanks! I've decided to use one 20,000mah 6s lipo battery (hobby king offered me a discount because I was looking at the product for a while. I dont know how that happened but ill take it?) Would the following parts all work well together. If it helps im about 125 pounds. A 2.4ghz enertion controller. A turnigy aerodrive sk3-6364 245kv brushless outrunner motor with a max loading of 70a, a max power of 2700w, a mass of 718 grams, and a 4mm bullet connecter. My esc is a hobbyking x-car 120a brushless car esc (sensored/sensorless) that has a mass of 84 grams. I think thats it for the main stuff. The deck I am using (or want to use) is a loaded vanguard deck (this a bamboo deck. Would bamboo work in this build?) with 80mm orangatang kegel wheels, 180mm black paris trucks v2, muirskate bear...see more »Thanks!

Can you link me to the prebuilt aluminum motor cutout? Thanks for the help so far.

    Can you add another battery to get extended range?
