Well it’s been a while since I did a complete build, since I have been messing around with stuff most of the year and setting up my own business for custom builds. But when eboosted released his demonseed 42 enclosure, I knew I wanted to build one and replace my green gt40.
So I snatched up an old demonseed from a friend that had a bunch of holes already, and I knew I wanted to extend the wheelbase for clearance so I got it reinforced with carbon fibre twill here by @Kaydo. After that, I painted it with a rubberised polyurethane to match the enclosure/underside aesthetic.
Following on, I worked with my good friend @Tony_Stark to make the wheelbase extension brackets, and they turned out awesome. The front one integrates with davega for a flush finish.
@Kaydo built me the 12s5p and it only juuuust fit with the heatsink and stormcore. But it works. (No smart BMS this time around)
Lastly, I wanted the underside to be tidy and the eboosted style enclosures don’t have many flat mounting areas, I utilised the extension bracket and the drop through space for the button and charge port. I designed an angled mount for the charge port, with a pass through for the button mounted on the plate.
And for the current result:
The current hubs are second hand replicas of etoxx wheels, only temporary. I didn’t make them.
It will be changed over to widened hubs, BN gears, purple grip and a black davega when I get my next batch from @janpom. I guess this is me also introducing Raijin Racing, which I’ll be building custom boards under, intended for racing here in Australia.
Finished minus the wheels:
