is it possible to make a motorized skateboard with a weed eater motor? Answered

i wanna go fast and if your not first your last. i want to make a summer project


It's plausible, but hard.
I tried it, but the gear ration was too high so the skateboard hardly moved.
Remember to use a weed eater whit clutch. 

Good luck

the motor might stall if there was too much torque, but if it's just direct drive to the wheels i think it could work.

I GOT IT! Use it to power a fan to PUSH yourself along! May or may not work...

I don't see why not. Take plenty of photos as you go, let us know how it works.
