Gerry here from belgium, europe, 39 years young. On most forums I’m called GerryCorrado (as I have a corrado since 20 years), The Green (as the corrado is green, choise was easy) or Noenkel Gerry (uncle gerry) by my godchild and several of my younger friends
Since this summer into eskating. Started with a DIY kit from @e.board_solutions with a couple of small upgrades (metal pulleys, larger batt, 90mm abec, ceramic bearing, risers, metr, …), but after spending a week on the board, I knew I had a new hobby. Coming from car (vw corrado widebody in metal) and bike (Grom) tuning, I really like the eskate prices hahaha
So… I have no clue how, but somehow I ended up ordering a 44 from @treenutter I think even before I read anything on this forum. Imagine how glad I was when I discovered he is a known eskate asset
As it would take a bit of time to build, I bought another complete longboard locally as an in-between project (MBS wheels, TB 218, dual 6355 sensored, bindings) which is currently waiting for a battery.
For the 44, initially I got a @MasterCho enclosure, but after placing it on the 44, I find it too small. Also does not fit my range goal, so it will move to the “in-between”
What I currently have in mind:
44 in Red (arrived) RKP SR 200 from @psychotiller Mounts from above sixshooters from above enclosure (for 30Q or for the sanyo/LG) Focbox Unity x2 from @onloop (ordered) Set of speedwheels from @MoeStooge (im on the inquiry list) Photon remote (arrived), maytech remote (arrived), pcb firefly remote (being built by @Zyb)
What I do not know yet… 2wd or 4wd (hence I think I need 4x 6Shooters for the back iso a normal set) belt driven or gear driven (heli?) or that reverse engine 90degree mounting option. Enclosure (waiting for options) and of course linked to that my cell count.
I’m trying to be patient and not order too many things before black friday (hoping any of the above do a discount hehehe), but I have a hole in my hand and money seems always to disappear.
