So this is the final product after many hours of work and many many hours of headaches i give you…
This is the parts list for my build some already ordered much of it is to be ordered but im hoping to have it all together by end of this month.
It will be my first DIY after riding my wowgo 2s daily to work
I most probably would of brought the Carbon GTR if they had released it 2 weeks earlier and i hadnt already paid for my Fatboy Nano Gear Drive, Heat sink, Bergmeister wheel adaptors and FOCbox Unity (which i now have somehow even though people who ordered years before me dont???)
Now for the rest of the parts list… … …
Landyatchz evo deck + accessories
Unik Maytech Motors
Some Quality baseplates and a change of angle for the rear if needed.
A lot more various items…
some double sealed bearings
The battery will be built by @tinp123 still to be ordered also but it will be a 12s4p of samsung 30Q cells so im hoping for a nice powerful stable board to replace my trusty wowgo
Feel free to point out anything i have missed or overlooked but im very hopful to have the exact board speed and range i need from my esk8.
coming along nicely hoping to have get the remote, trucks, deck and motors , all this week.
(I changed to @mackann bioboard 150kv motors) this does up the top speed to about 38mph
The 12s4p Battery from @tinp123 is well in hand too.
Id like to shout out to @BigBen on his enclosure i really feel its a super quality product and under-priced. £50 is too cheap for the workmanship and finish on this enclosure
Received battery finished much better than i could of done but took a lot longer than i hoped originally.
Progress with some help of a friend to align and drill the inserts for the enclosure
Got the trucks
started puttig them together but had to STOP!!! need the Bergmeister wheels still which Customs in the UK has seized
even have my puncher prevention measures in place
Im hoping this gets finished this week if i get the wheels sorted.
Really need advice on how to setup the Unity do i align everything then plug in my unity and configure or do i need to do that first? A little advice on how to do this would be helpful.

So this was the day it finally came together. After rebuilding the gear drives about 5 times finally got things all lined up and working right.
I had to purchase a drill from argos just to do a lot of the work but no bother it worked a treat fot the enclosure holes and power switch.
But as usual in esk8 there were many problems to overcome.
and then once assembled there are more problems
luckily it was me causing the issues, using a spacer(only on 1 side) that came with the gear drive and flywheel adaptors so now all running sweet.
I will say for anyone wanting to build a DIY ESK8 that goes 30MPH plus first read this… http:///building-a-lightning-powered-murder-board-part-1/
Id also recommend watching this guys video as i think what he has done for the money spent is incredible.
I cant echo the sentiment and accuracy of everything that has been said and the time you will save reading this is well worth the time before you start.
IS it worth it? YOU better believe it is, not everyone can ride a skateboard and even fewer have the ability to build them from scratch and be able to use it daily.
So its a choice do you want to be driving a ford KA or a Ferrari everyday?
As you all have probably gathered from the boards name Im from Birmingham UK but the better bit is we have a WhatsApp esk8 group of 24 members now so if you have a board and riding is your prefered method of transport come join us. We even have members with a onewheel and Gotway Moster Unicycle, ESK8 is growing so much its amaizing to be a part of
Any Questions about anything please ask, There have been many who i need to thank for the help and advice along the way the community (apart from enirtion) have been amaizing and so helpful in every aspect of advice and sharing of knowledge so if i can give back by sharing this i hope someone finds it useful.
