Hola everyone! :love_you_gesture:

Being under lockdown for so many months had almost driven me crazy and I feel in need to shout a big THANK YOU to this forum and its members for the knowledge provided and the uncountable hours of enjoy, it helped a lot to keep my sanity in place :smiley:
Special recall to @rey8801 @BigBen @3DServisas @Anubis @DerelictRobot @b264 @poastoast @rusins @pjotr47 @janpom @natch and many others at Discord and Telegram groups.

This is my 3rd DIY build and the first one I open a build thread about, so I’ll try my best to reflect on this post all the labour and effort has been invested to revamp my beloved ChooChoo and turn it into the following…

ChooChoo based build evolution

When she was young... and free

She had bergs and PU FatBoy geardrives… epoxy all over the place to keep her naked and dry… and a shitty Enertion Nano remote:

.

Pandemic isolation and madness

Dirty paths were not for her so going back to the streets… sales, shopping and DIY time :love_you_gesture: :love_you_gesture: :love_you_gesture:

This ChooChoo deck just has something special… I have ridden many boards with many different decks but this one is a perfect balance between size, maneaurability and performance.

So, I hope you enjoyed the pics! :smiley:

Stay tuned to the Complete Builds category as I am planning to sell it either as complete (without battery) or by parts sets, already looking for new challenges and I also because I have an ongoing Omakase build (with again the enclosure #1 from @BigBen) that I think will better fit my daily needs.

Cheers and see you on the streets!

Where did you buy 419D in the EU?

And what did you use to paint the deck? Looks really cool! :smiley:

Deck was painted first with line-x (used to paint truck bumpers) then with a grey granite spray as well as the heatsink :star_struck:

Yeah this thing is awesome, it also gave some strength… the idea behind was for protection rather than good looking but apparently I got both :heart_eyes:

I was contemplating PMing you about that actually :laughing:

Let me first consult with my brother on whether or not he would like to buy your deck in case you part out the board :upside_down_face:

Me too. @skate420 has told me I’m banned from using it on skateboards henceforth though. :frowning:

Beautiful build @Lobap !

Sweet build
Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of the heat sink? to… give off heat

1 Like

Yup but since I run these shitty motors + I usually don’t go over 50kmh + no hills where I live… motors nor VESCs never heat up :wink:

But anyway the spray is a metallic + granite based spray and only 1 layer went to the heatsink… shouldn’t be too bad :stuck_out_tongue:

What does it weight? Looks like a perfect city board :heart_eyes:

It was exactly 10kg with bergs, 30q and lights… now with p42a, tb110 and no lights i guess its between 11-12kg… :wink:
