I don’t have all of my parts in yet, deck should be here today and the rest of my batteries on tuesday. Figured I’d go ahead and get this started so you could see the Red Ember (@treenutter) deck and Psychotiller (@psychotiller) AT wheels.

Here it is with grip and the right truck hardware. The hardware I ordered was 2.5in…WTH? Anyways, I used some 1.25 zinc coated allen heads that I had laying around. Im not crazy about the grip, I don’t think it looks bad, but I need something that flows, the deck is to curvy for hard angles. I’ll figure something out eventually.
I swapped enclosures, the @psychotiller Monolith Low Pro 25 was a bit too long for the deck so I used a Space Cell Pro enclosure I bought for the heck of it. I could trim down the low pro but I think I’ll use it on my Jet Spud 33 that I am building next.
The next decision…I could finish it this weekend using a 10s3p battery pack I got from @PXSS (still waiting on x5 lipos) but I dont have a BMS yet so I would be running them with no discharge control. Per @whitepony, if I understand correctly, is not a big deal. Hmmmmmm, I ponder…
I might do it, I’m so damned ready to ride this thing I cant stand it! I have everything I need other than the x5 lipo packs (to make x10) or a BMS. I’ll have to use an XT90-S if I run without the BMS and they are difficult to fit in Space Cell enclosures, but I can manage it.
i wouldnt sign off on that generally! first of all its only for quality liion cells, battery friendly treatment and not max’ing nor min’ing the end of charge voltage (which could fall under battery friendly treatment)!
That looks really good. Do you think wheel bite will be an issue, or do you have enough clearance? I have a drop through deck I want to mount my hubs on, but I’m gonna have to do some serious hacking to make it work.
And for your boards name, how about the “Red Ryder BB Gun” cause it’s red and it will blow away a Boosted Board (BB).
