2020 Build of the Year--Winners and Prizes!

Hey all-

Thanks so much for participating in BOTY 2020. Despite the “please god let me make it to the Taco Bell restroom in time” rush scheduling, we all pulled if off as a community.

Really really awesome what the Vendors came up with in this short amount of time.

Thank you @BillGordon and @BenjaminF for having me on this years BOTY contest. Next time I’ll try to be a little more helpful :crazy_face:

Congratulations @DEEIF for winning this competition with your awesome board! Let’s see what what you come up with next.

Same goes for @glyphiks Your board was something else, truly a tank of its own.

Not to forget @Soflo , very clean board with an awesome paint job. Love it!

Here again a full list of the Vendors. The competition wouldn’t be the same without them, so give them some love!



You already were. Really felt like everyone on the committee contributed equally and effectively.


Lol, I hope Apex add the mounting holes to their upcoming ESC enclosure for the DV6! Otherwise @glyphiks is getting some incompatible parts as his prize :stuck_out_tongue: (Totally not eyeing the same combo myself)


Congrats on the winner ! Sick build these are !
Kinda lurking over the prizes :eyes:


Al could turn a lukewarm bologna sandwich and a roll of wet duct tape into a full AWD esk8. He’ll sort it.
