Don't even have to label it...just shoot it to me..I'll know it's u guys
So I been testing a high amp output low mAh light weight battery pack. Puts the race board just over 19 lbs. I'm what you may call a calculated risk taker. I won't bomb the hill on my first trip. So I will make a test mark, then ramp it up. First down n back 40mph. Second 45. Third was gonna be a 50 and done. Board ran flat and smooth as expected. Battery dump on the third run so we will try 50 tomorrow on performance day.
do you have a build thread for this
Search, builds that crack 30. Spur gear approach, and 3 link trucks.
if youre talking about my tiny build, no build thread yet! I didnt take very many pictures of the build process and honestly was mostly just soldering connectors. Maybe I'll try to throw one together at the airport...im gonna show up super early to see if i can get through with it in my carry on bag and if all goes well, ill have several hours to kill! otherwise I gotta take the board back home before I fly
if you make the batteries detachable it should be fully flight-legal
As it should be can't wait to see this in person
I'm a maybe for tomorrow. If I go it will be for an hour or 2.
I lost a mosfet switch at full speed this evening. Geez, looks like Im gonna have to go the loop key route too. This is my 3rd switch in the last 3 months. Sure glad I know they suck and have a spare I can use for tomorrow lol.
I also found out tonight that we are likely to have interference issues between each others remotes. @MoeStooge, are u using a GT2B as well? My three boards all run them and were all driving each other tonight.
This is the switch I use. $5 from Lowe's. Has lasted me for over a year without fail. People tell me I'm crazy for using it instead of an anti-spark switch, but the more I hear about those failing, the more I think keeping it simple is the way to go
Thats rated for 20A, Im running 150A lol
So... it is perfectly fine if your running 16v
True, but rated for less than 60A at 12S. It might actually be a decent option for most peoples boards though.
I run dual motor, 50 amp each, on 12s. No problems. I know it's not rated for that, but the worst thing that happens is the switch blows and I'm out 5 dollars lol.
And so far, over the course of a year, that has yet to happen.
Yup, Gt2b for us as well. I guess it's possible but not likely. What I suggest is we do an all stand beside radio check. Every one and all boards on. One at a time 10' wide open throttle then full brake stop. Any other board twitches hopefully we can find it. Best to be part of a pit meeting. Glad you brought it up.
Are you running that 100A at 12S on a board like your name would suggest "Penny Board"?
Haha no I'm not that crazy. My penny board build is currently in pieces while I upgrade it to 10s. I have gone 25mph on it though while running it on 8s. Scariest 30 seconds of my life
I like to throw @psychotiller favorite saying around...
pictures or didn't happen hahah
Great Day today Boys!!! Can't wait to get all of the video footage, photos and feedback on this thread!
We have big things happening on the horizon. Let's do it again this month.
