I’ve been lazy so I haven’t started a build thread. Running short on time so I’ll be brief and add to it later.
I started out with a Bustin board that my brother in law gave me. I’m not sure of which Bustin deck it is. My last build used Zippy lipo batteries and it was a pain in the arse to take the board apart every time I wanted to charge it so I decided to do lithium ion with BMS.
Here’s my parts list:
6S4P Custom Built Battery Pack by @barajabali (24X LG HE2)
2X Turnigy SK3 6355 Brushless Motors
2X Single Bolt On Motor Mount w/ Drive Wheel Kit from @torqueboards

FVT Programming Card
Custom Made Vacuum Formed Enclosure
Chinese Battery Capacity Meter
XT90 Anti Spark Loop Key
"Winning" Compact Remote 2.4 GHz
5.5 X 2.1 MM Charge Port
All XT60 Connectors
Imax B6AC V2 Charger (Wired for a single DC port)
Battery Supports 45A 6S BMS
Custom Momentary Switch for Capacity Meter
Caliber II Trucks
Bronson Speed Co G3 Bearings
Here’s the original board.
Here’s the pack the @barajabali made me. I couldn’t have been happier with this service. He made it as soon as he received the batteries and kept me updated throughout the whole process.
I got my motors in along with my drive kits from @torqueboards and went ahead and bolted everything up with blue loctite.
This is the vacuum former I made:
I made this with it:
This is my BMS:
This is my schematic for my WIRING HARNESS. I don’t want to hard wire anything so it all can be easily replaceable if it breaks. So any 6S battery can be plugged into the harness and it will have EZ charging/balancing capability.
This is the harness 90% done:
This is the controller I will be using. I have a GT2B for backup just incase this one is shitty.
I made this charge cable as well so that I can using my IMAX charger until I grab a “laptop style” one.
That’s all for now.
