In honor of the time that COVID-19 has freed up for me, with school and work both closing for the time being, I’ve gotten back into building and am naming this chubby little guy after this dumb ass virus. So far I’ve gotten the moon drives together on MTB matrix II oil slicks, with flipsky 6384 (190KV) motors, and slapped them on the choo choo.
I felt bad doing it because it’s such a beautiful work of art @rey8801 but I drilled a couple holes into the choo choo to accommodate the hole patterns on the oil slicks.
Here’s what I’ve got so far, with MBS fivestars and 9" pneumies.
One thing that’s really strange is the tinuy amount of axle left after putting the hubs on the trucks. The wheels, hubs and trucks are all MBS products, so you’d think they would be compatible no problem; yet there is not enough axle left with the hubs on to even thread the end bolt on half way:
The fuck is that shit??
I still have to figure out the battery and ESC situation, so I’d love to hear suggestions from you guys. Currently I’m debating between FOCBOXes and FSESC 6.6’s, running either of those options duel independent, as I have 2 of each of these ESC’s already. I’d love to hear some thoughts on which ESC would be a better choice for this build. And wtf I should do with the axle situation? Thanks homies, stay safe and fuck COVID-19
