I received my MOVE-E deck made by @Luke today after a long odyssee of the package
It seems to be the first one out there so heres my premier build log
As you can see I started with epoxying the deck and the lid, then waited for the resin to thicken a bit, then carbon fiber on top, after some wait soaked it in epoxy.
I’m currently developing a plan as of how I can embed the 2 Charging sockets (one main charge connector and one balance connector)into the shell without doing too much damage Same goes for the Antispark connector.
I had to get flat head screws for the bus connection since with the usual ones it didn’t fit. I got only longer M5 screws In the diystore so I had to cut them with a metal saw, 24 of them

I can’t wait, how this build will go! Renchtaler
That Batterie pack looks awesome, dude. Old shatterhand
Deck looks awesome and the entire build
Question, no grip tape or there is some secret you don’t want to tell us?
I see you are gonna ause it with a pretty low angle. Turn won’t be easy
Coming form a spud (really similar to this deck) I usually stand on the trucks. How are you gonna do it with the x thing? Just curious about it. Since you always find amazing solutions
If you needed screws you could told me and I could gave them to you. Sometimes are the small things slowing down the whole process.
I hope the manifestation will really bring something. I am now working for short period of the year in Germany too and I see a lot of electric scooter but not Esk8 yet.
Concerning the truck angle. If the 2 parts are flushed at the front edges (where the logo is) then is 50 degree angle. From them any step (available hole) is 5 degree adjustment. I think you can find a good compromise at 40-45 degree to have both low ride and nice feeling.
For the deck you will see that this kind of short decks are better to ride on the trucks. That gives you the higher level of stability. I am curious about the lucid grip. I have read discordant reviews about it. Is it the one you spray on, right?
Its actually glass frit with a spray glue, easy to use ready to go
Does it come off easily? Could be the solution for one of my build too. Since I would like to keep the wood look.
