This is a fully 3D-printed electric longboard drivetrain with a built-in idler system for RAM trucks (https://www.amazon.de/RAM-UB-Truck-Longboard-Achsen-Griptape/dp/B01CQOIMX4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490127213&sr=8-1&keywords=ram+trucks) that can be removed. I have tested this build on over 150 km and no belt skippage has occured during hard braking.

Make sure you have the same truck cross-sectional area.

I used http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:545345 HTD5, 90 mm 40T for the wheels. Thanks brentyi!

is it possible to use skateboard trucks?
I don't have any ram trucks now

If the skateboard trucks have similar shape to the RAM trucks then it is possible. If not, go check out the Thingiverse link, I uploaded a Fusion360 source file and you can try to modify the axle to fit your trucks.

Love it, awesome work dude!

Thanks for the support!
