This year has been filled with a lot of new experience and knowledge, as i started build my very first build, a 6355 dual drive in February, and a 6374 single drive in June.
Now, i’m currently scouting for potential parts for an AT build… maybe next year, or later this year. I’ve spent too much!
Now here’s the funny part. I’m not using a MTB deck that has the angles required for pneumatic trucks, i’m actually using this deck. Yep, it’s going to be a Mini AT board. Figured it’ll look cute, and also taking inspiration from @mmaner and his Spud AT.
So the next issue is the angle. Just plopping a spring truck on there would mean there’s 0 degree for turning, so that’s when this angled riser by Okp comes into play. Currently there’s 6 on interest including me, and we need 4 more. So if you’re interested… https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/poll-unik-35-risers-who-wants-them/47874
Okay, so let’s say everything is dandy and i get the deck and angled riser sorted out, which trucks should i go for? I’m thing either Trampa or MBS.
Trampa has the Infinity Trucks, the Ultimate, and the Vertigo Trucks. MBS has the Matrix Pro and the Matrix II Pro that has a rubber bushing as compared to the spring trucks. I’ve tried the Matrix II on a Lacroix but i did not like the turning as much. Perhaps i’m not used to the Lacroix board. I might choose the Vertigo Trucks as they are lighter than the Infinity by 200g, but that may change in the future.
Now, the wheels. An 8" wheel on this deck would probably be an overkill and be too much of a monster truck to be called an esk8 so i’m thinking of around 7", or Trampa’s new 6.5" wheels
If i were to go the MBS route, i’d have the flexibility to choose various colors as they have a wider range, these hubs are calling out for me. Or perhaps there are other vendors out there that sell wheels with good options, let me know!
As for the motor mounts, i’m currently keeping my eye out for these ones. https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/mountain-board-motor-mounts-for-sale/44546/213
With that, I think i’ll go for Torqueboards 6374 or 6380 motors, still undecided. The Potato deck is basically a longer version of the Jet Spud, so @Eboosted’s Double Stack Spud enclosure should fit nicely. Enclosure can fit a 12s6p. Holy shit… I might not go that high but that’ll be decided in future. Cells will probably be 30Q.
So yea, these are my possible parts selection. Do help me decide which would you prefer and why, or if there’s a better option, let me know! Thanks for reading, hopefully my bank gets a bit fuller quickly so i can start building this damn thing!
