DIYvolve build.... continued

In usual fashion, I’m posting 1% of the details behind this ridiculous build.

It’s goal is to make evolve riders want to turn DIY, make forum guys frowney face evolve, empty my bank account, make @ psychotiller roll his eyes every time I show up at his garage, and beat everyone.

I’m on liquid hangers and 230kv 6374sX4

Thanks. I painted them black. I’m going to give @dani ‘s half straps a whirl tomorrow

Would love to hear impressions

I dont think this is a longboard at this point. Its a terrain bound rocket ship

Why 230kv? I’m confused

With 4wd, i think its probably ok. Considering 2wd 5060 270kv is still reasonably torquey, 4x 6374 230kv is just ridiculous.

I dont think the Porsche is there for no reason, i believe its a victim

It has a top cover and it’s carbonfiber too, but I don’t like how it touches the terminals.

I put @dani diy bindings on… a different evolve. He also printed me a few firefly shells a year ago. I stuffed a mini remote in one shell.

Ill test the bindings hard tomorrow.
The 1st gen Carbon is powered by 10s6p 30qs, dual focbox, 190kv 6374s.
