I recently got a used Ownboard Bamboo AT, everything looked alright until the deck delaminated
Now, getting a deck from OB is a pain, so I’m thinking screw it let’s use what I have for a DIY project. After browsing this forum for a bit, I fell in love with the LY Switchblade 40in board…I don’t mind the DKP for now, but I care about range. I’d also like a good looking board
Here’s the idea:
Phase 1: Switch the whole OB Bamboo hardware to the Switchblade…I guess everything will fit right? Only downside is drill the board to fit the OB battery (which has decent range but I guess will be changed soon, so new case = new holes)
Phase 2: OB has known issues with battery and remote, so thinking of changing battery, ESC and remote > Because I care about range, I’m thinking to get the @eboosted casing for the Switchblade but what’s the best battery I could put there for range? Also, suggestions on remote/ESC?
Phase 3: At this point, the only things left from OB are the wheels (cloudwheels), the motors, and trucks. Let’s go in order…I don’t mind the cloudwheels but I’d love pneumatic. Also, I don’t mind DKP trucks…I think with SB deck you won’t have the biting issue with the wheels but if I want to change that then I will need to get the whole thing (trucks, drive system, motors).
Would it make sense to keep the original trucks and just upgrade wheels? How bad are ownboard original motors? Does it make sense to upgrade these or it doesn’t make sense and at this point should I just redo the whole drive system? What should I put there if super high speed (>30/35mph) are not that important but good acceleration and efficiency is?
Thanks a lot for your help!
