I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my next board and the Carbon GT seems almost perfect…almost. The design looks incredible. I think it’s so far ahead of anything on the market aesthetically. But the build quality and QC issues scare the shit out of me. Motors burning out, remote disconnects, faulty motor mount design, inferior battery cells etc etc. It seems as though Evolve took the easy way out on things, in terms of quality of parts and quality of build.
DIY has come a long way recently, particularly in terms of aesthetics. I’m wondering how close you could come to building something very similar to the CGT (ie- carbon fiber deck with integrated enclosure), but with top of the line parts and build quality. Is this possible? Has anyone done something similar?
