Hey guys I am going to build a MBS MTB and would love to see what you guys have already built! Alos, Please feel free to mention any good finds or mistakes others should avoid!


#2

I am starting a hybrid using ATS trucks with 7in Knobby’s. I have completely settled on a deck yet. THis is what I bought from MBS…

x4 13018 - Complete 7" Knobby Wheel (1)


19.95 each
x2 12008 - MBS ATS Truck (1)

29.95 each


#3

I’ll post my pics soon.

FYI - not many motor mounts fit the ATS trucks as-is. @Idea has some designs that he can CNC for you, but I ended up taking a dremel to the truck so that a caliber-fitting mount from DIYES could fit. Before then I had a prototype mount made of plywood.


Motor mounts kits for Trampa ATB and MBS Matrix (old type), Matrix II, ATS

@mmaner Check the axle diameter - IIRC the ATS is for 12mm axles, and the 7" wheels I think only fit 9.5mm.


#5

That’s the ATS.12, the standard ATS trucks are 9.5mm as are the 7in KNobby wheels.



#6

I’ve been chatting with @Idea about his dual motor mount solution with clamp rings for the ATS trucks. Im mostly just experimenting with this build, trying some new stuff that I haven’t done before. Ill post lots of pics and summaries after I start building.

Cool thread, UP !

None ?

Just for inspiration, I know Yann made some good one since 2016 now ^^

I love diversity !


#14

So nice and clean build!
The heatsink box for the esc looks soo good.
Really nice made. The battery box too. Did you make the battery box by your own too?


#15

Thanks Andy :relaxed:
Just the finish of the battery box (inside/outside).
It is an ip55 electric junction box (that met the needs of my mate/customer), I filled all the wiring entry holes (on 3 sides / 4) with 3D printing.
Then stratification and finishing CARBON POLYESTER blue.

For the cover, it is the same plus integrand 3d printing. All painted black satin with a graphics test … cause the fiber has moved a little and is not the cleanest :smile:

For the MADBOX, normally reserved for complete custom (it’s why I can’t share it, it’s kind of my signature), I will set up a small, very small GB regarding all the demand for them. Maybe around 3 or 4 pieces of fox and as much v6/escape case, to start and see how it goes (if I have the right to make one, … I must verify that!).
I’m looking for the best compromise actually, not to spend a month on finishes (hard arm work) and trying to keep a good price :wink:


#16

You have the regular status, with it you allowed to do a group buy :wink:


#17

Ho good to know, thanks ! :smiley:

I’m testing another way to make (a BIG) top mounted battery case/ enclosure - flexible - and a bit more integrated … but when you want more than 12s16Ah it’s a hard time :sweat_smile:


#18

That’s right! I really need to work on a hot swap docking station. One thing for multiple purposes.
You can use different lipos in different sizes and you can swap them in just half a minute be releasing the straps and change the pack.


#19

Exactly !
Like Duffman swapping pack … insane!

My next will be … a lot more complicated I think hahaha
But I have also try to those transmitter cases by Turnigy ^^


#20

Yeah the duffman packs insane, but I guess i can’t do a so complex pack :sweat_smile:
Have too fat fingers for all the wiring :see_no_evil::joy:

Maaaan, how much builds you have???
