I did not hit her, I did noooot. Oh hi Mark !
This is the build I dreamed for since I started esk8. And after many struggles/ problems it is now a reality. I have a few things left to do to perfect it as much as I can. I’m no LHB or OKP but I definitely wan’t to achieve something sleeker and more refined. We’ll come back on that later.
First a few beauty snaps :
So now let’s talk a bit of the build itself. The first thing I had to do was wait (like always in this hobby) the carvon was delivered few month late but that’s Okay when I recieved them I had no spare focbox or whatever so I replaced the drive of my Belt drive build with 10S3P so I could ride em and see how they perform :
They perform amazing. Great torque and the speed is insane. In foc it’s just dead silence you can’t even hear the motors with full throttle. However with 25R and 3P configuration the sag was awfull from 70% of battery. I used this set Up for 2 month the time I gather some monies for all the expensive parts I had to buy.
So after a few purchase and some sweat I was at this point :
12S5P, FOCBOX, Photon Remote it’s all there !!! At this point I’m overwhelmed and just can’t wait to finish the build and ride forever. DYED some wheels :
But I won’t for at least a few months First it was the remote the problem, it would not bind and to this date ( almost 3 month later ) still wont. I have yet to recieve replacement parts to make it work.
But it’s not real problems there, I quickly hooked it up with a GT2B Mastercho mod and went riding in Paris :
later that night I went riding with Nono along the seine and tadaaaaaaaaam he tells me my board is smoking. I stop and smells some horrible smoke : Found out many mosfets of the BMS burnt :
So I replaced with the same model but brand new :
This time the problem was different the discharge would work fine but I couldn’t brake with the motors because I had an Undervoltage problem. so neeeeeeext step :
Replaced with the Bestech 80A BMS and now it works flawlessly.
What’s next ?
Now I’m more than happy with the performance of the board. it’s just great. Has more than 50 - 60 km range. The downhill deck is just all I love about longboarding. I just feel again on my old longboard. No noise, no rolling resistance. when i don’t use the throttle I can’t distinguish the two. it’s crazy cool.
I have a few plans left : Few little things that will make this build perfect to my eyes : Braided Cable Sleeving I really want to integrate @Kug3lis Dual FocBOx BOX to the enclosure Right now i think i will basically cut the enclosure to the size and only stick out the Fins of the box and seal it around with silicone. That’s my best option for now. I really wan’t to integrate it.
if you have any question/ suggestion please do ! It was My first build thread after a very long time on the forum sorry for that
