It’s currently 2:17am on a school morning but we all know this is more important.
I’ve made a couple fibreglass boards before (can be found on @enrico_log on instagram) and now i’m planning on making a third.
Our robotics team developed (stryoaminium) which is a thick layer of styrofoam sandwiched with very thin aluminum sheets. It proved to be extremely strong and light, it’s like budget carbon fiber. A direct quote from Midland Daily News: "The team ended the weekend with another FIRST® Safety Award and Engineering Excellence Award sponsored by Delphi for the “uber-light, ultra-stiff, budget unobtanium” – a material Team 2619 nicknamed “Styrominium.” Styrominium was created by sandwiching two pieces of Dow Chemical Co. Styrofoam and bracing it with aluminum."
That inspired the idea between maple and fiberglass sandwiching the balsa core.
Will be a 35-37" single kick, 26" wheelbase with squared, routed wheel wells. W concave & slight rocker
(not sure if this idea has been done before)
That’s all folks, thanks for your time.
