Hi Esk8 world,
This is my first build and first skateboard. I have a lot of experience with RC planes/quads and when I learned about the DIY esk8 world I knew I had to build one. My friend has a boosted board and I wanted something that would at least match it in speed and range. I chose the monoprice hard case for my enclosures because they are cheap, durable and easy to open frequently. I chose to mount them with 1.25" skate hardware to keep things simple and strong. I have had good experience with the Turnigy Graphene batteries in RC so I chose to use them on this build. After careful checking of the battery dimensions I found the 4000mah 5s 65c battery to be the perfect fit for the monoprice case. Two of them fit like a glove in the case with just enough room for the series harness.
