First build! Coming from a boosted, I wanted to get tires and bindings so I feel more “secure” especially on the roads of NYC. I could get a Kaly but I figured if I’m spending that much money I could instead invest in learning how to build one. Plus when you DIY, “you are the warrranty.”
Let me know if I’m doing/about to do any rookie mistakes!
Trampa Infinity with HS11 deck, bindings, 8 inch tires
Fatboy Focbox case in red + dual Focbox
Fatboy 5:1 direct drive
SK8 192kv sensored
Custom grip tape job while I wait for other parts. I wanted to differentiate myself from the usual hexagon grip tape patterns I see on the Kaly’s here in NYC.
Grip tape progress
Trying to see how much of the grip tape my bindings + battery box will cover. Sadly a lot. Seriously thinking of switching to bottom mount.
Some more progress on the grip tape
Focbox case arrived so I mounted them. Goes well with the subtle red on my wheel hubs. Maybe I should have gotten red bearings and/or red spokes too?
Because of slight variations on trampa’s manufacturing, one side of the axle is slightly fatter than the other so the drive baseplate doesn’t go all the way in. Notice in the picture that there isn’t enough space for another bearing, let alone the nut. I had to use a hammer to forcefully slide the baseplate in.
Got the direct drive and motors. Really need to do something about that sk8 blue. Anyone have ideas on how to tone it down/black it out without affecting heat dispersion?
