We are quickly approaching mid 2019 now and I was just thinking about how much everything has changed since I first started ghosting around on this forum. With all these new innovations around I thought It would be cool to redo a topic that has been created before just to see what everyone has to say now.
My question for everyone is…
What is the one thing that you want to change or did change on your build that felt like it was life changing?
For me its actually so simple but it has made a massive improvement. Trinity Wedge Risers. They are 10 AUD and run a 5 degree wedge that is soft enough to cushion out bumps without affecting ride. They also create a 10 degree split between my trucks giving a more stable ride at high speeds.
I bought the evolve gt as my first board just to try those 7inch tires, got underwhelmed with power and range, sold all but trucks and built a 10s4p platform to power the drivetrain with 200kv 6365s. The power increase was real and the unstable nature of the dkps became very real… I cannot recommend them to anybody
Learning how to build battery packs (the first thing I did) set the table for everything.
Oh and Cronins. O.M.G… I fantasize now about modeling a ronin hanger with caliber profile and getting a few made, so I can mount gear drives, etc. Maybe even for DD motors. Wouldn’t mind ponying up for ronin precision baseplates.
It’s like a virus infecting my brain. Maybe I can infect @rey8801 and @LukePL too.
