Been wanting to build a faster longer range than my Raptor.
I got most parts in Im just waiting on some risers to come in and I need to get some stuff from the hardware store like nuts and bolts to finish mounting the battery encloser.
-Landyachtz Evo deck
-Torqueboards 218mm trucks
-Torqueboards 6374 190kv x 2
-Torqueboards 12s4p 30q battery
-Torqueboards 12mm 16t Motor pullies
-Long Haired boy 33t wheel pullies
-Evolve Abec 11 107mm F1 wheels
-Enertion Focbox x2
-Enertion motor mounts x 2
-Shred lights front and rear
-Bones Super Reds bearings
So I had some time after work and I wanted to mount the Torqueboards encloser and I did not like the mounting hardware at all it looked sub par. I also read about how the mounting holes on the encloser tend to fail. I used flat aluminum stock cut drilled and shaped it and layed it across all the mounting points to spread out the pressure. I also changed the scews to standard truck screws and nylock nuts so that it can’t vibrate loose and if I need to remove the encloser out when I’m skating all I need is a standard skate tool.
Yea I hope it holds up well. This deck does have a bit of flex to it, it’s just a hair of flex I think this will help me on long rides I thought the deck would be stiffer but it’s not as I imagined it. The tesseract deck has no flex at all almost like the Raptor deck.
Perhaps the flex on the evo comes more from the neck and tail area where it is thinner?
The aluminium is going to act more like washers I’d guess and the parts where the bolts aren’t probably won’t do much. Perhaps some thin adhesive foam rubber along the length to grip?
