Yes it is safe to run the raptor hubs on 12s. By spec do you mean battery size or something else? No one has made boards with this set up because they just came out and no one has them yet, I think they are shipping this week.

If you end up using them make sure you make a note somewhere on here about temperatures, its always good to have more info

nice! I always knew they were thicc but I havnt seen them in person.

Maybe if I make it to a group ride this winter break someone will let me try their hubs

I’ve never been to a group ride but that’s prob because I live in nyc and the roads are shit ill do a hand comparson for you

makes the TB/MAD hubs look like Meepo hubs(in size)

yeah there actually bigger than my 6374


well congrats on getting some dope hardware that young, haha

prepare to be broke if you continue this hobby :joy:

It sounds silly but I would encourage someone to build a ‘crappy’ board as their first, and ride it for a month or two, figure out what you do and dont like, and then start fresh on a second board. Its what I did, and when I brought it to where I work, people thought that I had purchased a board from someone on the forums, it was a total transformation from my first.

Unless you have both a right and left hand… I was gifted with two left hands(metaphorically, of course)… so building isnt my stong suit

yeah sorry epss4, ill buzz off now :stuck_out_tongue:


one reason im trying to sell my tb mounts, i dont need them

sry for hijacking the thread
