The wrecktangle first build, 12s5p, pneumatics, flipsky 6355, trampa vesc

So I thought I would redocument my build since my old thread has a lot of old and useless info

Thank yous

I would like to start by thanking a couple people who really allowed my build to come together
@tinp123 built my battery and printed a bunch of parts for me also I have asked hundreds of questions which he patiently answered for me

@MauveMaverick I chatted with him on discord and we exchange dinner hundreds of messages he helped me with tons of things allowing me to get my board working for the first time

@Brenternet loaned me £180 which allowed me to go And continue building rather then having to sell my parts

@BillGordon @mmaner @longhairedboy and all others mods for reallY making this forum an awesome place

The whole forum for being an awesome place which I love so much to Be on

Background

I started in 2018 buying a meepo style Chinese board which I had till the summer this year were the battery died
I had also built my first diy which was a cheap Chinese 4wd hub motor which was before I found the forum
I have never been a very fast or hard rider soo when I came to here’s with a budget of around £1000 (I spent a whole lot more) I was looking for long range comfortable board which is semi waterproof for London roads Also I love speeding up hills as I have something nice 20% gradients here so I needed quite a bit of toque
Currently this will Be my only build for a while as I am collecting funds for for a second board

Old parts

Random eBay deck (was rubbish and I ended up trying glass frit on it and just ended up with cut hands cause I used medium frit also no enclosure fitted still just lying in my room if anyone’s wants it)

Boardnamics mounts(didn’t get enough clearance so had to go with some bigger reverse mounts)

Abec11 flywheels 97mm (not very comfortable on London roads and I needed more stability

Couple other bits I will add once I remember

Settings

Foc
Motor amps=45
Motor brake amps=-40

Per vesc

Ride

Feels amazing to ride and haven’t gone above 35mph yet
Really comfortable and pleasant to go on
I love the turning and at the same time I am not getting any major speed wobbles
Overall exactly what I was looking for when I started building
I will upload some ride logs soon

Next build

My plan for the next build is a short range commuter on a nice flex deck
Maybe Samsung 40t 10s3p with either some hubs or a nano gear drive/moon gear drive
This build is probably still a good year away but excited to start building again

Please give any name suggestions I found you can

Thanks to everyone and happy reading

Lastly @Skunk hi deckoz

Use the html sub tags is how I do it. Copy and paste the above and change the text in the middle and you’re good to go.

He couldn’t enjoy the build, because of the loose belts. That’s what he is saying.
