I now have FOCBOXES in my CGT and no longer have any use for these parts. I know battery builders will be interested in the BMS(@longhairedboy, @darkkevind).
The BMS is in working condition(SOLD). The remote(SOLD) is also in good shape and is working. The small plastic that covers the microswitches on the on/off portion has come loose, but everything still works.
The ESC is damaged, and only has 1 working motor. I am not sure why, but this is the case. Not sure if anyone is even interested in that.
Make me a reasonable offer and i’ll probably take it.
They took a gamble using the prismatics over the 18650s, and i get it. In their testing they found that welded 18650 packs were more of a potential risk than their goals would allow for. They took the safer, less financially risky road and the voltage sag came with it.
and their wheels chunked. And their motors get hot. but other than that, I can’t think of a more convenient 10S tuner platform.
I mean shit, look what people are doing to it. I just grabbed this off of instagram:
The people that send me thier board to mod are fucking serious.
It sounded like a bash but beer does that to me. I actually like the company as a whole with how they set up such a good back up base around the globe and the level of commitment shown by the bossman in selling everything he owned to start it is inspiring.
I’ve been thinking of using one as a base for a while now. I’m in their home state too but prising one away from people is proving problematic so I shall just have to keep breaking into their garages and sabotaging the remotes and batteries. wish me luck.
Not sure about anyone else, but I think the BRAKING on the Evolves is second to none, including DIY. You can go from full-throttle to full-brake instantaneously and it won’t chuck you off the front, but it will stop you in a hurry.
The one time an asphalt remover had went across an intersection right before I went through it – if I had been on ANY other board of mine aside from the Evole, I’d have been fucked, including Metroboard and all the DIY. I got the Evolve slowed down enough to run off of in like 10 feet…right before the board hit an “asphalt wall”
But overall I think I like Metroboard better. And DIY is awesome. But when it comes to emergency stopping, the Evolves are pretty damn good. Which makes me feel safer on them and thus allows me to go faster.
IMO Evolve did a lot of things right. I like the trucks. I like the AT wheels. They are still one of the only people actually selling pulleys with bearings(consistently). I like their steel motor pulleys. I like the way the mounts sit. The chassis for me has been rock solid for thousands of miles. The remote is just OK(still one of the first with good telemtry tho).
I don’t like the battery. I don’t like the power switch. I don’t like the ESC.
On a more related note: All the stuff is sold boys. Thank you all.
