Deck on me decks…

Received the board today, no warps no damage apart from a little wear on the F4 tail binding condition wise its almost new, im tracking the drive system like a hawk :eagle: it should be here this week :grinning:


#22

Looking foward to see how it turns out!

Love your choice of deck :wink:


#23

Many hex keys and beads of sweat later…


#24

Helmet ordered, i went with the Met Parachute in mat black and red same as this…


#25

Tail docked, not finished as it still need a couple of mm off each side.


#26

Knee shin and elbow arm pads and helmet, crash pants and hillbilly gloves next… got a good deal on the pads less than half price… :slight_smile:


#27

Good and the bad…

So to my dismay the deck is slightly warped :face_with_raised_eyebrow: i will buy a replacement, but ive been stressing the deck and have reduced the warp for now to about 3-4mm from 8mm so i will continue to use this deck until such a time i find/buy a suitable replacement.

Anyway good news my Triple 8 bumsavers have arrived (sorry no pictures :blush: )and ive just ordered my second to last bit of protection…

I’ve also got the fabrication pieces needed for ecs/bat enclosure and will order wrist guards “size out of stock” and motors next… not to sure on what motors yet!!!


#28

Motor decisions…

Think il be going for two of these 6380 170kv in silver @Idea @torqueboards or anyone with build knowledge can you confirm that they will fit? im sure they will but it being my first build i really dont want to order before being 100%.

Looks like they’ll fit with no issues. :+1:


#30

Shiny and chrome… upgrades :smile:

I got a new deck the other one was causing me grief, and adidas Terrex boots (in background) as i intend on getting muddy AF.

Escapes in the bag… mock up positioning.
Tail docking tomorrow as its a bit late now.

So, il be ordering a few more bits in the next couple of days, still undecided on a few things… :thinking:


#32

Great build ! Love the color put here :slight_smile:
This will be fun enough for sure, maybe after times you will want a bit more speed (then S could come).


#34

My 168KV motors arrived today, test fitted…

motors


#35

New bolts and load spreading cone washers…


#36

Make it fit…

esccase


#37

Wheel be gone… and magic hex wands…


#38

Jus found some chunky washers that i didnt know i had!!.. I have placed them under the rubber mounts for now may change if the esc box ends up to high!!! but for now they give a bit more damping squishiness and will help keeping the water out of the fixings, going to put some liquid tape around the bottom of each one as well probz.


#39

Almost done, i’ve got my bat case and alarms, bags, silicone caps and 2x 6s Graphene lipos on the way, ive gone for now with the 8000ah low 15-30c ones just so i can see if my escs blow up before i go potty on a four set of high c lipos…


#40

They looks super good for the use ! Much stronger thant tiny other we could see :+1:

Good choice :smiling_imp: already close to doubling the stake !! Hiiiaaaaaaa


#41

Thanks brother, ive added speed cream to my fresh bearings they spin forever now, i eventually managed to get a set of 4 good wheels out of 2 sets of the MBS PRO’s in the end…

Also i can make a spare up out of the leftover hubs for the top of my batt case or backpack so il have a ready to go puncher replacement :slight_smile:

Barring any mishaps :pray: think il be riding soon… :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::crazy_face::metal:


#42

So i need some esc settings advice… @Andy87 @Riako @b264 anyone…
Ive powered up both escs ive connected 2 x receivers to one remote, but im yet to run anything, i am watching as many videos as i can to familiarise with the software and setup process.

My setup
2x 6s 8000ah 15/30c
2x Escape esc’s
2x 168kv 2x motors, no sensors.
2x receivers one remote.

I want to set it up with about 50/60% of what it could do, so i get somewhere around the 20mph top speed mark, with that in mind whats the settings that best suit, thanks in advance…

edit… also want to know about setting a failsafe for remote connection failure, and any other advice on pitfalls i maybe unaware of would be super cool… :sunglasses:
