For the grip I started with some doodles with the idea of a comet as inspiration. The design also had to work with the constraint of the Vicious grip tape coming in 4 separate squares instead of one big sheet.
I was happy with how my final sketch came out, but then overnight I decided that it’d be cool to have a different pattern for each end instead of being symmetrical, keeping in theme with the directional board. So, after some additional sketches to make it somewhat cohesive I was happy and transferred that to the board. After that it was painstaking work on cutting out the design and transferring that to the grip and back to the board.
I’m going with18s to have more options for escs. I’m mounting the esc on top so I can switch between a top mounted battery and bottom battery. Dual 18s12p for long trips and single 18s6p when doing short rides/track.
Wow. It’s a beast! Great choice for a 4WD. I think the odashi would be lacking in internal space for a 4WD. All depending on what the plan is for it of course. I realllly considered the north camp when I was deck shopping. Looking forwarded to seeing it all come together.
Northcamp is huge. Intentional. With very high speed it gives a little extra psychologically that the dimensions visually are maxed out.
We have single stack enclosures. It’s abs though. But works good. Holds 10 21700 cells across very tightly.
It fits both Northcamp and Jotnar. You would probably not be able to use the DS mounting holes on the NorthCamp as the SS is slight slimmer to be able to fit both decks and to make a little more clearance when max tilted. But I have actually not tested this.
It holds 20s, but then absolutely no more space for anything else
Yeah a single stack does something really good. I have the double stack enclosure on my long distant board. and that’s good for packing in cells. But A slimmer and lighter ss suits the deck good. I have chosen 16s5p and 8s10p
