Hello guys this is my going to be my 3rd build, I’m really excited for it, this feeling of being able to create your own vehicle is awesome, I know I’m not the first one to build a Trampa Street Carver but to me it feels like I’m the first in the universe.
I was waiting to finish it to post all pictures at once but I decided to use this thread to document everything as I move forward.
Beautiful Trampa deck 14ply (glad I went with it instead of the 15 ply, it’s flexible but not too much, BTW I’m 154lb (70kg)
Mini vertigo trucks, even wider than the Evolve hangers
Red springs on white dampas
Here is the truck mounted on the deck, this is the urcan carver position, I had to switch to street carver position later in order to gain more height and avoid hitting stuff on the road
I repositioned the springs to the inner position and the carving is now amazing, maybe too much, I’ll have to give it a try later when I testthe board on the street:
I shaved the MBS wheels on the lathe in order to avoid the resonance that might have something to do with the trucks cracking, check this post for more info:
Here is the final board:
The wide hangers are pretty wide, wider than I expected, so I’m happy with them:
The 6374 motors a pretty big and feel heavy, there no such thing as “too much power”
The motors came with nude phase cables and @Kaly included 5.5mm bullets on each motor and a the correct JST connector to connect directly to the VESC. I covered them with braided nylon sleeving in order to get a profesional look and protect them:
I went with Samsung 30Qs from IMRbatteries.com, I got a pretty good deal as I purchased 210 units for me and my friends e-boards.
Tomorrow I’ll begin with the battery assembly, here is a 12S4P on Kaly’s enclosure, I hope I could fit the antispark switch, BMS and charger in there.
