HOW TO Build Custom DIY Electric Skateboard! – [Part 3][Battery Enclosure/Ride Test][Dual 6374]

Here’s part 3 of HOW TO Build Custom DIY Electric Skateboard. In part 3, we finish up the skateboard by installing everything inside the battery enclosure and doing some touch-up like hot gluing charging port, and drilling holes for the battery enclosure.

After that, we test out the new board by taking it for a few miles around the neighborhood, double-checking every mile that nothing is coming off, making sure everything is running smooth.

This is NOT FINISHED YET. In part 4, we will do a full range test, top speed test, and also optimize the skateboard. Subscribe so you don’t miss part 4!

P.S. I will have a shortened version of the tutorial in both video and written language soon, sorry I just spent a LOT of time this so wanted to upload it first, enjoy!
