Drang Boards deck building services, design, cnc etc

Makes me miss those hold tail gards with the flint pads that threw sparks.

I’d love building those, if there isn’t a restriction from a patent or something. We have plenty of UHMW in .5" thickness and 1" thickness. Just gotta drill holes and put some sparky stuff in the holes.

Do you have something similar to the Jet Vulcan Kick in 36-37 Inch? image I tried adding the Dasher in the basket, but 50$ shipping to Japan kills the deal :sob: If you could combine the nose shape of the Dasher with the tale shape of the Jet in 36,5 Inches would be my dream Deck.

I’d say most of the boards I’ve posted are going to be very similar to that board. Jet does a different iteration of drops, and kicktail, but yes for sure.

Yes quite similar, but your Decks taper more at the tale. Is the 50 bucks shipping set in stone?

Where are you? The dasher were doing for adam0311 is wide. We have other side tail shapes too.

Japan. I tried your customization tool, which is awesome, but in the end it scared me away cause i could not really imagine the finished outcome. Your offerings are really good and affordable, i really can recommend going on your site and dialing in your own customized Deck! I am too much of a noob to know the outcome. :rofl:

I’m happy to consult with you. Also keep in mind, that online tool is for custom one off builds which do not have CNC fixtures created for. The molds and boards I’ve been picturing here are all mold and most fixture supported, so that means we can hold the board down to the CNC table in order to cut it the deck, wheel wells, flush mounds holes, battery accommodations, and the profile of the deck. We are not really set up for doing hand shaped decks with battery routes.

I am the kind of guy who prefers just to slab a enclosure to the Deck! No fancy cutouts needed. I will definitely consult you after I get my taxes back! Good luck with the community Deck though!

Cool.

Been talking to Onloop about the raptor.

I think it would work on this model, and W concave would help save a bit of strength on this doobie mold. Tried seeing how close I can get the battery to line up the truck mounts. The raptor design would be great to make a board for with less or no drop in the mold.

Here you can see it with the Battery tray on the board.

image This model doesn’t show any w concave, because I don’t model that in CAD together with the board, but it would give us back some wood for support. This deck would need to be 12 plies thick. Roughly .75" thick or 19mm. We’ll see how that does, probably at least on 1 set up. There might be some other molds which would work just as well or better than this one.

There is about 3/16" between the top of the raptor riser, and the mounting base for the deck, so between the .31" raptor riser, this would have 1/2 inch of 12.7mm of total truck rise. I guess 90 or 100mm wheels would be chill on this setup. I am thinking of maybe making the deck with a longer tail, maybe 8".

I think I’ll carve only the areas that need to be carved on the Raptor.

I’m excited about the possibilities we have to make decks which can work for retrofitting onto other kits. I can’t wait to do a boosted mod deck, as well as this one for the Enertion Raptor 2 set up.

I also want to make a set up that will be able to have a custom longitudinally aligned batteries which are buried deep into the deck along the concave.

I am completely obsessed right now. Sad to say but I have to do more actual work.

That raptor 2 deck looks awesome. If he asks you to put a handle on it tell him no.

You can show him this too if you like.

I have been working with Inloop to dial this model to see how well it would work on the raptor set up. Maybe I won’t be the only one who wants to do this with the raptor. All sentiment aside, kicktails are really an important part of life.

Yes… I always feel more locked in with that back tail

So here’s a sketch. This would be my ideal concave and deck configuration. This is a set up which is 15 batteries across. Batteries take up about 2.5" length, so in order to get 75 batteries, it would need to be about 15" long + or -. I imagine we could get more batteries in there though. The strips can be made to accept a bit of flex too, and maybe with composites, we can cut the deck thickness down a ply.

I feel like making something that form fitted for the batteries might make it difficult to have battery packs made.

Here are 110 batteries inside of 19". I suppose that might leave enough room for ESC n stuff… ?
