The end of the year is coming! I better try to get a build thread in. This is going to be a wild one. Let’s have some fun. Here’s the list:
Deck- A brand, spanking new whip from yours truly.
Trucks- PKP off-road trucks from E-toxx
Reeeemz- More E-toxx
ESC- MakerX Go-Foc D75
Motors- New Maytech 6396 150kv
Battery pack- DIY 16s10p p42a
Remote- WavRX puck
Tires- 8" Mudpluggers
Bindings- Tomiboi ratcheting clips
Battery enclosure/ESC heatsink box- top-mounted Tomiboi custom
Anit-sink plates- more custom shiz
I’ve got a lot in progress right now. Pictures coming soon. Here’s the above list in paragraph form for people with time on their hands.
Imma make myself a new deck just for this build. I’ve been told that PKP trucks like big angles at the nose and tail, so I’m going with 35/35 degrees.
I really like the footbed on another deck that I make called Odashi. It’s a long drop-deck with some w going on. So, for this deck I just used that footbed and turned up the ends. The construction will be a bamboo/CF sandwich sheathed with fiberglass. Lastly, I’m going to have some fun with the paint.
For the trucks, gear-drives and rims, I went with an e-toxx kit. I’ve been intrigued by Jens’ PKP design and was able to talk him into letting me try out some off-road trucks that he has been working on. I’m extremely stoked to give this shit a roll.
I went with the MakerX Go-FOC D75 for the ESC here. I’m excited to see a button on a MakerX ESC. Isn’t that something. I’m also excited to see more ESCs in the 16s range. It certainly is smaller than the UBOX.
I’ll be trying out these new motors from Maytech. They’re supposed to be made from better stuff than the older version and they have a ventilated thing thing. The 6396 motors are only rated for 12s, but I asked Maytech, and they said I shouldn’t have a problem running 16s with the 150kv motors.
I’m going to make a 16s10p p42a battery pack for this thing. Plenty of range and powah. I’m also going to make a topside enclosure for the pack using my new resin printer if all goes well. I’ll use ABS-like resin for the bottom, but then I’m going to make an aluminum heatsink for the top, because I’m going to house the ESC in the battery-box.
I’ve got a few other things in the works as well. And like I said, Pic coming soon.
