Finally Finished! This is my first off-road build. Parts list is in the title but here it is in more detail.
DECK - Landyachtz Switch Eagle 35 This is a deck I received in my mystery box this holiday season, so i’m not going to count it against the cost of the build. It was basically free (those boxes are loaded with goodies). I had to modify the deck to prevent wheel bite, but that was easy with a dremel.
MOTORS - 2x @dickyho 190kv 6364 Motors - $107 Again, since he is know for cheaper yet decent quality, I decided to try these out. I also noticed that there hasn’t been much talk about them on the forums, so this is my chance to review them (one did arrive with the sensor wires mashed and cut unfortunately - dicky apologized though
BATTERY - 10s3p 30Q NESE Module Top Mount - $186 I purchased the cells from @thisguyhere and the module hardware from @Agniusm - Then I assembled the pack myself. Super easy, highly recommended, and a GREAT way to understand some basics about battery building and wiring. My pack was assembled in a box shape instead of a flat pack since it was going to be top mounted.
BMS - Charge only 10A Cheap Ebay BMS - $15 Not much to say here. It gets the job done. balance mah cells.
ESC - Focbox Unity - $200 Welp… It’s not in the build yet, because it isn’t here yet. You know why, I dont have to explain it For the time being I just have your typical cheap 10s belt drive ESC holding its place. It works for now (obv acceleration and brakes are interesting, but you get used to it)
ENCLOSURES - Custom Designed & 3D Printed - $20 With my purchase of a 3D printer awhile ago, I started to learn CAD and 3D design, which came pretty easy with my background in graphic design and interest in 3D stuffs. I designed some enclosures - one for the battery, and one for the cheap Ebay ESC. When my Unity finally arrives, I may need to design a new enclosure, or maybe it will fit in this one, we shall see. Either way it will be an easy swap most likely.
MBS F1 Bindings - $25 I knew i was gonna need some bindings. Thought about designing some, but once i saw these, I was like “simple, cheap, sure”
@moon Moonbeams - $20 Why not add a sexy carbon fiber touch? They really help hold down my ESC enclosure too
FINAL BUILD PICS
It earned it’s name because of the compact size and color obviously here it is next to a jet potato 33
Cheers and happy building!
