    • Interesting, looks like some fun. It looks like he’s got a rather high kv motor running to a cog then to a belt. It probably would have worked out better with a lower speed motor to start with so he wouldn’t have to step it down so much.

      Good question as to why boards have belts at all. The only think I can think of is to allow for slipping in the belt. i.e. if the motor can’t pull the weight the belt slips as opposed to shredding gears/motor.
