I had my rather nice mountain bike stolen from me at my house a few months ago. However as luck would have it my renters insurance(Renters insurance is wicked cheap, I recommend it) covered my losses and better yet kicked off my funding of my first mountain board.
I haven’t touch a skate board since 2004 but the second I saw on of these bad muthafuckas I had to build one. I have named this board the kamikazi(It’s not spelled the right way I know) because I’m fairly sure the second I touch the remote I will fly into traffic.
This site has been a god sent for research and resources. I appreciate the help and quick responses from the people here.
Being my first build I went with the basics for a mountain board. Don’t have the tools to fabricate any of the parts myself so everything I’ve picked up can be found on here or a few clicks away from here.

There is a sliding cost for shipping. I’m in the USA and this is what it took to get this. I’m also under the impression I have a lot of redundancies in this system. When completed I will have 2 power buttons and 1 key.
