When i started this build i was 14 years old and it was Christmas time and all i wanted was a electric skateboard (boosted board) but they were over $1000 and that was way to much so i decided to build my own. So I order all my parts after watching endless youtube videos. Parts

I found out about his form and asked if anyone was in Jacksonville and could help me with my build, And @cmatson respond ready to help the (funny thing was that we went to rival schools) anyway he built is for me the first time and it worked amazing it hit about 23mph top speed, until the batteries started puffing up about 3weeks ago. And i had to get a new battery for it i decided to to get a good 18650 battery from @oriol360 and i was lucky to have him open up the site even though it was closed and i bought a 12s2p. then i had to figure out a case i found a wooden case and put that on added a anti spark switch and voltmeter that is messed up by a few volts. I screwed it onto the board and the case was a little wide and the screw is almost off the deck(any suggestions to fix that). Any ways the new upgrades are awesome i hit 29.97mph on the second ride. Any ideas to add?
