Wasn’t going to do a thread on this build because its nothing new or indeed special but its just so pretty I had to share it oh and to thank the people responsible for making it. All I’m doing is assembling it. It started as a battery upgrade for my existing dual 6374 carbon and evolved from there hence the name. In looking for a way of mounting my controllers above the deck because of the great big battery I stumbled across @sk8l8r awesome clone evo build and things changed. That deck that enclosure oh lordy! That was me finished. I just had to get me one of those. Couldn’t go the falcon though just in case I couldn’t fit everything in and end up back at square one so went with the full size evo. Just sitting there looking all gorgeous. Then the enclosure Ignore the one on the left thats for later.
Then I had a massive motor malfunction with both my sk8 which were originally earmarked for this build and had to go for something else and after much deliberation I went with the old faithful sk3’s I’m not keen on sensors so not an issue for me and they seem reliable so hey ho off we go. Oh and hk delivers in 3 days…3DAYS!!!
Drive train was an issue due to flex on the reverse TB mounts with big heavy motors so I hacked a cross member set up and incorporated some idlers If anyone is interested in that process then shout.
Originally wanted dual braces and idlers but when I looked the belt was too close in the centre so until I source some smaller bearings it will stay with one for now. Just not sure about that clearance. It all fits just. Got the nut serts in after some scary drilling into my baby Went with m6 big ass inserts and man that deck is hard. Broke a few before I got it all done This basically where its at right now just some wiring and aesthetics and we are go. Just making up my mind about whether to go deck mount or enclosure. Keep you posted on progress
