    im thinking instead of putting the motor inside the wheels, we could fix it to the side of the blades, add some vents, and theres your cooling, but chances are everythingll be real heavy, and the heat could do some damage to the use, nvm that

    Well see, ive also thought of a train-like drive but I don't know how efficient or possible that would be. The wheels inside the motors would obviously be the best idea. Again though, heating/ventillation is the biggest issue besides the pressure system. I've thought of a turbine system, almost like the Roaring Regalia's jet theory, but then you'd have the roaring regalia AT's and not normal AT's.

    You can put sensors on the bearings and rods that you use to secure the wheel to the skate frame, that way you can possibly download all the information like height jumped to/from (calculation put out on graphs with time for x and y for height) speed (again, same thing) distance (just a number) and any other information you would want. The rod and bearings would be almost like memory sticks for the skate itself. With access to that though, you could either wire or program the rods, if you put a braking system on them, to how hard you brake, how fast you go, how much pressure is required to go what speed, and designate in each one which wheel/foot is the dominant so it can adjust to the pressure it will receive and how much speed to put out. Therefor, you can have both wheels accelerating and spinning at the same speed but once you reach a certain point, you have to switch your stance up so it will know, at that limit, when to spin the speed it is at that pressure.

    Well, treat it like a car. Have vents and coolant. The coolant is to start things off, and when the AT is moving, the air will help cool things down.

    personally i think it'd be more effective if you left the motor inside the wheels. You get nearly 100% of the energy created by the engine. Like cars, even if your car can make 200hp, only like 170hp is getting to the wheels. That and if from your design it powers both wheels, then even less since the power has to be distributed to two shafts.

    Also a motor that small producing that much power a little air imo wouldnt be enough to cool it. I believe it has to be cooled another way. There will be just too much stress on the little engines, since there's so small space and there will be such little air flow to the engine.

    You're forgetting that A-Ts use Oh!Great physics. No need to restrain yourself with reality, go wild!

    Well right now i'm worried about what is within reach and what would be the safest way to go about it. Yes, speed and acceleration will come but you need to have a way to stop that speed and acceleration. Also jumping higher and farther you would have to land softer and easier. After you get these things out of the way and test them, move on to the harder things that way you already have the safety issues workout out on top of the performance. What's the fun if you can't be dangerous without knowing you always have an escape route?

    the braking system...do it exactly like a car or motorcycle. Or you can just "tuck and roll" until u come to a complete stop...ahaha. =D As for jumping higher, i can't really see a way to successfully jump A LOT higher than what you can normally do. As for jumping farther, just pick up some speed and leap.

    Since the actuators give you that extra cushion anyways, you would bounce a little coming down as long as you didn't push to go back up. This is how you would jump higher, like those old Moon Shoes or a trampoline.

    This is my list of parts/items so far to make what I've been trying to save up to do. But because of speeding tickets, an anime convention, and other random expenses, I am yet to do it.

    Parts list for my AT's:

    The basic skate: RB Downtown 2

    Kizer Frame with built in shock absorbers

    Actuator: A very small version of this for the added suspension. It will give you the bounce and the landing

    Add bearings of your choice as it is the bearing that determines your speed, wheels of your choice, obviously the skate boot of your choice, you know customize as you want.

    LAST MINUTE CHANGE!

    Looks like mitsubishi is already workin on our motor
    The motor in theory
    The motor at work, tested...in 2005!

    Another edit:
    Search for Wheel Motor on google, apparently theres many people working on it. Look in images.

    EDIT (98abaile): Oi! No double posting.

    Im back again. Wow, Lots of progress since last stop.

    Quick question for the vents, since the motors inside. with that in middle, why not have the groves from the center of the wheel be grooved in such a way the it blows air onto itself from the groves sorta acting the like fan while the engine acts as an arm thrusting the fan, idealistic, a perpetual collant. LOL, though i think that's unlikely. Eventually it'll breakdown nonetheless, but it may reduce the time it takes for a meltdown .

    Now since we're talking about motors, how exactly are these run? i know that wheel motors exist, its just a question of how these are powered. Aren't they powered in the center of the motor or something? I mean that would ony make sense. lol...

    I'll actually draw a sketch for you what i think might work combining all your ideas. Heh maybe this might be able to be pulled off. lol
