this video is after finishing applying spar urethane varnish to the whole deck. Liked the reflection on it and the matte finishing

those are the flipsky/china trucks?

I’m stoked about the mudguards so much! I’m riding on MBS trucks, and something to stop the water and mud would brighten my days :smiley:

my clothes look like shit these days, board and remote is the same :smiley:

Yeah, those are the same kit. FlipSky trucks and motors. Are you on the same setup, MBS originals?
These are for the front trucks, currently designing the rear ones.
Designed to fit 8" wheels.

My roommate used to have such board.

I have different board, and different trucks - matrix II https://mbseurope.com/product/mbs-matrix-ii-truck/

do you think it would be possible to design the clamp for the matrix trucks?

I don’t see why not. I just need to get my hands on one of those or get the engineering drawings.

I’m intrigued by the mudguards. Mind sharing a step file with me? I’d try to make em fit on my ats12

nope, this is only the top truck, where the kingpin is. We need the ones where the rods connect to wheels. But thanks.

There’s this? The tubing of matrix 2 trucks

Thanks. I saw them yesterday, but currently away from the office. Will get back to you guys next week to see what can I come up with.

I cant wait what you’ll come up with :smiley: I rode about 95 minutes in rain, fog, mud, ice. my hands were completely frozen, I’ve been covered in all sorts of dirty things, and of course streams of water.

board is made to handle this, but my frozen toes and fingers do not cope :smiley: I’m in dire need of the mudguards ATM :smiley: not interested in half an hour of pain while heating my fingers

Bumping my question since you have seemed to skip it

sure, no problem. Will be back in office on wednesday, send your email on the meantime!

hehehehe no problems mate. Shall we take it to DM to come up with a fair price and arrange the shipping?
