-removable bottom pan for easy electronics access
-Re-designed W-concave top deck.
-Re-designed lower pan to allow for all the batteries and electronics to fit under the deck.
-Modified frame and steering rod mounting brackets to give ground clearance and support a 87mm wheel. Currently has 107’s on it.
-modified the axles from 14” to 10” length.

So sexy, can’t wait to hear the ride report. I have been thinking about something very similar- how difficult was it to mod the inrunners to slide the shaft over/thru the rear case?

I’m very interested to see how this works for you…I’ve been thinking the narrower track will negate the downsides of the “locked” axle in a set-up like this. Great work!

All my other boards use one motor with a solid axle. And they work great. I’ve never really had a problem with them. That was one of the reasons why I wanted to do this with the motor. Because it’s the only way I can do 2 Wheel Dr. one motor on the NKP 3link trucks

Both the castle 2028 800kv motor and the Rocket 520kv motors had a 10mm keyed shaft that was turned down to 8mm on the ends. I had to disassemble and rebuild each motor. I was able to use the original shaft but it did need to be machined to work.

I really liked the v2 that I won all my races on. But Moe did not want to let that go. Instead he gave me a v5 Frame. But It was just a frame, and trucks. No wheels, electronics, batteries. Ect. So… with how the frame was built I could not put anything smaller than a 5 inch wheel on it, and the overall deck thickness of the v5 was too thin to fit any of my batteries like the v2. So…. Instead of spending a bunch of money buying wheels, gears, batteries, from Moe. I just decided to make the v5 into a v2 and make what I have work. My other option was to either let the frame collect dust. Or sell it off. Once I started modifying the v5. I figured I might as well add some really cool features. Every cut I made was to better the Perfofmance and feel of the v5 for what I wanted out of it, like by adding W concave to the top deck, adding offset heims for a tighter turn radius, making it AWD, and hiding all the electronics and batteries inside the deck to give me 6” more deck foot placement for a wider stance. It’s more like a Ferrari with performance upgrades. M2C

Much respect, it looks great…I’m a big fan of smaller wheels. I’d like to hear what it sounds like in action with belts on the castle controllers vs the open gears on most of the SRB set-ups

This is a raw video of basically the same set up on my e-luge. Same motors, ESC’s, urethane wheels. Belt drive, 1 motor 2Wd X2 =AWD

Thank you. I have always been an innovator, and have done a lot for the Stooge Race team, boards, and company as a hole over the years. I would not be surprised to see future SRB come with concave, offset or modified heims, shorter axles, a thicker deck, or dual drive inrunner motors. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for racing.

NOT STOKED

Jason Lucier rode for me from Jan 2019 to May 2021 on the V3 front drive raceboard, he played no hand in its development and in fact was the second rider to race it.

I first met Jason at World Cup '18 where Luke Belz was racing the V3 for SRB. Mr Luciers contributions to SRB 3-link development was in the building of a protype baseplate for the 3link based on V3 pickup points, not his design. He also wrote a cnc program for my revised version of the prototype and he donated some tooling and 20 pieces of aluminum base plate stock. That is where Mr Lucier’s contribution began and ended.

I don’t want to go into details about our falling out but it lead to me being without a rider an hour before races at at both Bako and MaryHill in 2021. Jason made it clear that he was not happy with my team leadership and would prefer to run his own show. All that being said, it doesn’t mean I don’t want to see Jason racing, in Jan 2022 I gave him V5 #011, a set of usable metro wheels and spur gears – add motors, add batteries, esc, radio and you are racing. I cannot say I am ‘stoked’ at the changes he made to the V5 but I’ll say what I say to anyone who thinks they can do better than the SRB V5 – bring it. I hope to see Jason at the track, I wish him success in his endeavors. :checkered_flag:

Whats the issue exactly, seems like Lucier is just building a board with the stuff you gave him no? Not trying to be deft here legit just wondering what the issue is with what hes doing :no_mouth:

This will make one hell of a movie some day

I’m sure I don’t know the whole story, but discouraging modification of your system is also discouraging innovation, and that makes me a sad panda. I for one hope you both love your own setups as much as you can, continue to improve them around your own ride styles, and that you hold on to that fire for the track, rivalries are great fuel for competition.

So this is permission to attempt our own production 3link truck designs? No one will get mad?

Moe B Biggs sorry you feel that way about how I modified the v5 for what I wanted out of it. I’m sorry that you have forgotten all the help and support I have given to you and SRB as a team and company. I’m sorry that you failed to recollect all the R&D that I did to come up with the first, second, third, and forth prototype NKP3link baseplates for production, including manufacturing the first production run of 10 to get you going. But thank you for mentioning that I gave you all the tooling, programs, and material so that you can have a shop that’s local to you make them for you. See you at the races.

Honest question…What makes these trucks so special? Carving? Stability?

1 Like

From what I’ve heard it’s a combination of high speed stability, low speed tight turning, and adjustability

Thanks, I had a chance to ride them recently, they where nice, but honestly, I was not blown out of the water with them. They probably were not adjusted correctly for my weight.

They turn amazing and are stable at 50mph+
The faster you go, the more they lock in. If you didn’t notice, you weren’t going fast enough
