On The Road to Thunder in the Mountains - a build enroute, specs tbd,

I’m renting an RV and rolling from San Diego with @Bobby up to Colorado.

-Route not finalized, probably leave Saturday.
-Going to try to meet up with anyone along the way for a skate. Maybe @MoeStooge @Psychotiller.
-skating anything that looks cool and charging/driving in interim.

I owe @jamie the satisfaction of seeing a complete build using his 44 board I still haven’t touched.

Going to timelaps the build with a GoPro.

I will actually post step by steps in chronological order. (I will try)

I’m open to build suggestions. Here are some parts I’ll likely use.

-Dual vesc6s
-Psychotiller enclosure
-Surfrodz rkp mounts and hangers, no surfrodz tho.
-Evolve Double king pin trucks
-Terraintula wheels. (@RedBaron do u still have wheel pulley for those?)
-evolve at wheels
-psychotiller 6369 200kv motors (I have 4 but only 2 ESCs…)
-Samsung 30qs, in 5p groups x 10. No serial connected yet.
-42 SPIM08SP cells:

-a sunko 10s charge BMS
-diebiems BMS
-25$ gift certificate to @RipTideSports from Barrett junctions finish.

Open to trades or buys along the way. Got some 30qs? I’d buy a few.

It’s 16hrs by google maps, I know I can make a board in that time.

Yes, I still have a set of 72t 5m 15mm gears with the hole pattern. Also have the longer hardware to accommodate. The gears also fit mbs hubs.

The set that is pre drilled is slightly used. picture is for show.

I have brand new ones, but the holes are for mbs hubs and you would need to add more for the terraintula’s. I made a 3d printed jig to help drill the holes if you want to go that route.

Edit: I also have 16t and 20t motor gears for 8mm shaft.

Definitely want the used set for terraintulas. Any chance you got the AT tires?

Black looks great.

Yeah, I got brand new knobbies and tubes but you might run into clearance issues if you don’t get the spacing just right. I use extra nuts and washers for spacers. I’m not to sure on the value of it all, I’ll have to see. I’m also up for a trade if you have a spare maytech 6374 170kv laying around. I’ll pay the difference if needed.

I can’t make this event. Dr.Mike is bringing a brand new board for Colorado Cadi to race. Cat’s outta the bag!

Hopefully everyone will get a chance to check this beast out.

If you want to pass that beautiful deck off to Dr. Mike he’ll bring it back to me.
