Project Red | DB Freeride 38 inch | Dual 6374 190kv | 10s4p | 2x Focboxes | Eskating enclosure | 90mm wheels



Im about to update the focboxes from the stock bldc 2.18 fw.
Is it still the Ackmaniac FW that is the best out there? Or should i go for the vesc tool 3.400?

Will start with bldc and then move over to Foc-mode. =)


Delivery from @fottaz arrived today!

  • battery enclosure
  • 10S4p
  • metr module
    -bullet connectors


Is rear facing motor mounts an option for you? That might help you be able to eliminate your risers so that your deck can be lower to the ground. Will help with handling.


This is looking like a really nice build are you doing the threaded inserts


Of course, threaded inserts looks the best!


I don’t like reverse mounts. Most of the time I’m kicking my board up in my hands and it would be impossible with reverse.
My mounts are also not made for reverse install.


Building day !
Todays tasks

  • Install the enclosure
  • Drill the deck to make room for the m4 inserts
  • Solder bullet connectors.

Started with drilling the enclosure.
Used masking tape to point out on where to drill the enclosure, decided to go with 6 screws along the sides.

Started drilling with a 4mm drillbit.

Next i taped the enclosure to the deck just to make sure it wouldnt move out of alignment.
Made a small mark on the deck using the drilled holes one the enclosure.

Next i used a 4mm, 5mm, 6mm and 7mm drill bit to make the hole big enough for the insert.
This helps to prevent the wood in the deck from cracking.

Then it was time to install the inserts.
I found that these inserts i got from ebay works great, on my previous build they were solid and never caused any issues.
Its important to make sure not the tighten it to hard, when you feel resistence STOP. Its good enough.
m4 inserts.

All done!

Test install the enclosure with the aluminum washers.

Looks amazing IMO

Coffe break and then time to do some sodering.


Looking good my friend. Nice use of tape for depth. Old trick but effective. I use a bit stop now and thats just the business. Little collar that grub screws onto the bit. Stops the eventual slip and full penetration. oooh full penetration. :sunglasses:


Looks clean, like the rest of the build. I just HATE those inserts. Those have been backing out on me unlike my other board with slotted. Did you use any epoxy when inserting the insert? Also are you attaching hardware to the deck or to the enclosure.

Oh and I love the aluminum washers! I have a set of red ones in case you need some. Although, I think the red ones I have are M5’s.


On my previous build i had ZERO problems with the inserts.
Dont use any epoxy or such i just screw them in with a screwdriver.
I think that most people over tighten the inserts and it makes the wood go soft. I stop as soon as feel that it bottoms out.

Im going to attach the hardware to the enclosure. I been thinking of attaching it to the deck for easy maintenance, haven’t decided yet.
