Flynn reached out from his lovely home on the new free grid and asked me to build this for him:
Some of the pics show R-SPEC 6355s on there. It now has a pair of SK3s, per the customer’s request. I had the R-SPECs because there was originally some confusion as to weather it would be dual rear or dual diagonal, but we both much prefer the dual diag with SK3 motors. such delicious torque. Stand still starting is really smooth on those motors at that raitio on those wheels.
6374 149KV motors on a 14/36 ratio in 100mm MBS all terrain UNSTOPPABLE wheels. Inlaid EL wire. Fairings. Headlights. Tail lights that dim when you hit the accelerator. ITs also drilled for foot bindings which were explicitly asked for, but i prefer not to test with them or ship them installed, so they’re not bolted on in the pics.
Street testing has been very smooth, especially at night. The headlights are brighter than you would think for just three LEDs in the riser, and the EL just lights up beautifully.
I’m sealing up the box and phase lead connections at the truck for light rain and puddle splashing during commutes, and there’s this Corrosion X HD stuff they sent me that’s supposed to protect metal so i’m going to try it out on this build. Has anyone here ever treated bearings like Bones Reds with that kind of thing?
