Motor on the Longboard whoaa!

  1. Aug 17, 2008 #1
    After seeing some people with these motorized skateboards i kind of wanted to try and make one. Does anyone know the best types of motors electric/gas? I would prefer an electric one but im not sure if i could get it too fast with an electric. Well first off what are the advantages of electric over gas, and vice versa. Secondly does anyone know how to make either a strong electric or gas motor? is it possible to get this board up too 20-30mph?

    Take an old jetski apart ;-) Mount it on the bottom and build a hand, trigger throttle.
