Converted Electric ELOS With Belt Drive Now Exists

And here it is:

Notice that the enclosure for battery and ESC was pushed forward a bit. I also suspect Johnny changed out the front truck. The back truck, of course, had to be changed to one with the pulley and motor. I also suspect the wheels went from the standard ELOS 72mm to 83mm, but I’m not certain. I can see they aren’t the standard ELOS-supplied wheels branded with their slogan:

If all of that is so, then this is a mod even I should be able to do, with parts from DIYeboard:

Single Belt Drive 1400W N5055 Motor Power Truck& Front Truck Kit

Single Belt Drive Outrunner Motor ESC Speed Control Kit

And I think it can be used with the enclosure and battery shown together in this kit (the ESC, probably not):

Electric Skateboard 7S2P 4.4AH Battery & ESC Power Kit

Details to be worked out when I have the money to do so.

I hope he will do a formal speed, battery life, and range test as he did for the original hub motor conversion.

Good job, Johnny!
