Hi Guys, about to start my first DIY build. I’ve been on electric boards for about a year now, started with an Ownboard W2 and moved on to a Bamboo GTR. I’m keen for more torque, top speed and range. I live in a regional area surrounded by 100’s of kilometres of rail trail and bush tracks, so I want something more than capable off road, but also able to keep up with the Lacroix’s and Flux Motion’s on the road for group rides! Here’s my parts list so far, it’s a work in progress so any feedback is appreciated! I weigh about 90kgs and it’s super hilly here.
Deck- Trampa 10-73 BigBoi 35° holypro- stiff
Enclosure- eboards Peru Trampa Holypro 35 undermount
Battery- 12s8p 21700 Molicell p42a, including BMS, chargeport and charger courtesy of Glyph Iks
ESC- BKB Xenith
Trucks/gear drive/hubs- 3DServisas Finality AT Kit with Finality Channel Trucks. 127mm gear drive 40t:10t 1:4 ratio (8"-10" wheel size).
Remote- Trampa Wand
Motors- ANT Technologies 63100, 5000w, 170kv
Tyres- MBS Australia 9" T2 tyres and tubes
Cheers, let me know your thoughts and if I’m forgetting anything!
Lots of issues with the trampa wands. Personally I’d never use one.
Might be ok since you’re not using the trampa Faraday cage carbon fiber enclosure but not worth the risk imo.
This is a solid ass pack made by a solid ass dude. Wise choice.
Careful, this is a pretty weak ratio for pneumatics. Go 1:5 if you can sacrifice the top speed as I fear the acceleration will be underwhelming on 8" tires. 9" and 10" would be awful with a 1:4 ratio. Even a 1:5 ratio is pushing it at 9" tires. This is from someone currently riding 1:5 on 9" tires
I honestly can’t tell you a specific number. I plugged in one of my offroad boards into that calc and got similar results but then noticed it didn’t change the torque values when I changed wheel size which is interesting.
Definitely. It is one of, if not the most well reputed remote used.

Thoughts/ feedback? I’ll be taking this slow so I don’t stuff it up. My main question is regarding waterproofing, the enclosure has a rubber gasket, but are waterproof cable glands enough to waterproof the cable entry points? As mentioned in the waterproofing thread, I was also going to use sugru to doubly seal any ingress points. Also when making the xt90 loopkey, do you guys just epoxy the female side into the enclosure? Also where can I get those cool 3d printed loopkey covers/handle? Be as harsh as you like, I’d rather it now than have something fuck up later!
