After completing a pintail build and riding around, I nearly fell a few times due to going over small rocks. I have also experienced speed wobble at around 25mph. To kill two birds with one stone; I decided on a mountainboard build. Most electric mountain boards that I have seen looked extremely heavy and ugly (with the exception of E-Toxx builds), and I didn’t like the idea of having a box of lithium under my legs . Here is my shot at a sleek electric mountain board:
My enclosure is made from G10 (CF blocks my GT2B signal) and Aluminum), and there is still a couple of inches of ground clearance below it. I have designed it for dual drive, but for now I will only use one motor. There is plenty of space in the box for lipos, escs, motors, wiring, etc. I am also working on V2 which will work with channel/spring trucks. My custom enclosure is extremely sturdy so far, and I may even sell some kits, if there is interest.

Cool looking voltmeter, light-up switch, and loop key
