Brently's Builds

Hi Kids,

Rather than my various build threads I’m going to roll up all my updates/tinkering in this thread. Think of it as a more in-depth version of my Project IG - “BrentlyBuilds”. I like looking back on what I’ve done to help me decide on what to do next so apologies if these feel spamy but should lead to way less threads from my end. My collection is ever changing so its not like any of them are “final” anyway.

All boards I’ve ever built/modded with a thread currently (tried to do these in chronological order):

Trying to decide if I can live with this gasket or not. 18s is calling me tho…

Woke up at 4:30 and couldn’t get back to sleep so decided it was time to bite the bullet and finish putting together my first 18s build.

Overall I’m happy need to redo the front part of the gasket a bit but it doesn’t look as bad as it could have in my head.

Hey dudes.

In one of my more recent gasket adventures I got this foam strip from Ace. And it expands from .25 to 1 inch.
It has more open bubbles than the harder foam tapes.

But I had to navigate pretty different height so it worked well for me.

Can’t find the ace item. But I think it is like this.

good deal man - I went with a 1/4’’ rubber strip and then some automotive weather stripping I got from autozone. I like how well yours molds to shape tho. I’ll probably go with something like that if I need do this again, or if I end up redoing this one.

When I DS my proto I’ll prob use rubber since that just needs to pretty much be a pure spacer and not conform too much compared to this guy.

nice, it’d be cool to have a 40 mile board again

Are those 190kv motors? On 18s? :exploding_head: let me know how it goes bro…I havnt tried that yet. 190kv motors usualy not recommended over 12s,14s
