Anyone know what kind of trucks these are? I’ve looked on the MBS site and can’t find them. They have 12mm shafts, (Thats all I know :laughing:) they were given to me and I plan on using them but the guy who gave them to me doesn’t know what model they are​:joy: and I need to know what model so I can get motor mounts. The mounts I’m using now won’t work.

Looks for me like the old matrix spring truck

@idea might have a motor mount for them.


#4246

Awesome, thanks and I’ll get ahold of @idea

Take it to your local machine shop and have them do it? It can be done with an endmill if you/they don’t have a broach set (which is the “correct” tool for the job.) If you were REALLY motivated you could do it with a set of files and/or a drill/dremel and appropriate bits.


#4248

How do you make a square hole with an end mill?


#4249

A 3mm keyway broach is about the only way to do that

YouTube is your friend

You can’t. but you can make a half-circle and clean the remainder up with a file. Or you can make it shaped like this:

Has anyone heard of or bought anything from https://www.janux-esk8.com ?


#4255

They have a set of nice dual motor mounts for the MBS matrix pro that’s pretty cheap but wanna make sure the site is legit


#4256

lol that’s @marcmt88 on the forum. yes hes legit. lol


#4257

Nice! Sorry, still new here, don’t know who’s who yet


#4258

No worries bud. I’m never mad to see someone look into a product before buying it


#4259

He is a nice guy I bought mounts from him. So I can vouch for him and he ships quickly so no complaints at all.

Hey guys,
huge noob question here.
Does this diagram works or is there an issue with anything (connectors, in/out side of the switch, etc.).

Plus I don’t have an XT90 female, can I solder directly my flat wires onto here on the XT90 parallel connector:
xt90-connector-pair


#4261

NOOO please… Either get a female one or unsolder the connector and solder the wires together…
Diagram looks good to me…


#4262

These are super cheap compared to other parts on a boards and can usually get on amazon for like 8-10 for a pack of them with prime.


#4263

So I’ve created a couple of topics but don’t need them anymore. How do I close them or should I just leave them open for others to use?
