This is funny, because I just realized my diy obsession is not even a year old.
Not even a year ago is when I received my Diyeboard kit with the 10s5p pack. August 25th 2018 to be exact.
This was after owing a Metroboard Micro Slim, and Evolve GT, and a Wowgo 2S.
I have really gone crazy since first taking that kit out of the box and being amazed when the motors actually spinned.
In any case, the kit never got a ton of action. I got separate trucks and dicky ho mounts, and changed the gearing.
So it was fast on flat, but could not get my fat ass up a hill without killing the battery.
So after that taste I started gettind real parts from Psychotiller and a bunch of builds later, now I have a second mortgage…
But back to the Diyeboard kit. It still works. And I had enough parts laying around to get it going on a deck.
So here we go.
270kV 5055 motors.
Psychotiller flagship battery(i tried to shape it some and fucked it up…)
Dickyho short mounts(Old style, boy they are so much nicer looking now…) for Paris trucks.
Cal 7 Abex flywheels clones 90mm
And the star of the show the Rayne Rival Cartoon Deck(love that thing).
In any case, changing the motor gear down to 12T has really made the kit run better for me than ever before with 14T.
ESC is pretty horrible compared to a Vesc you can tweak, but still, it freaking works.
So long story short, it works. It is not pretty. But for what it is it goes fast and I think i can get 10 mile range out of it…
