I am building my first electric board after mountain boarding for a while now. I would love a Trampa 2wd Spur Gear Drive, but between the price of the board and shipping to the US it is out of my budget. My goal for the board is a good hill-climbing board for mountain bike trails that can also hit the jump parks. Priority on hill-climbing ability and range over top speed.
So here is what I have to make my copycat board:
Board: MBS Comp 95 Complete with heel straps
Drivetrain: Boardnanics M1-AT with Boardnamics motor mount kit
Motors: BN6384 Battle Hardened
Battery: 12s7p top-mounted in Pelican case
VESC: Stormcore 60D+
Remote: Benchwheel Wireless
So what should I change out? Anything I need to be aware of with these parts? Any input is appreciated!!
Be aware that due to the nature of matrix 2s, the geardrives may take a bit of work to get on because the hangers are cast and have poor tolerances.
Be aware that the Comp 95 comes with nylon baseplates, which tend to break with hard use (although I didn’t run into issues with them while I had them on). Might be worth springing for the metal ones alongside. Also I’m not too confident on whether or not the remote is compatible. From a quick glance on their website it doesn’t look like it comes with a matching receiver, which will be necessary to plug into the Stormcore. 7p feels a bit heavy for a jump board, but anything is possible. Otherwise looking good!
Thanks for the response. I actually live near MBS HQ so replacement parts will be pretty easy to get. I was also considering the V2 remote, would that be better?
And yeah the 7p will be heavy, so I’m planning on getting a second battery for park days.
I’d buy a Hoyt Puck instead. If your budget is tight and you’re not riding in massive cities, the Flipsky vx1 is fine.
I’m in Greeley. I’m just finishing up a bro build that I am selling. Dunno if you would be interested or what your actual budget is. Just thought I would offer.
Yeah, I am interested. What are the specs?
Ay another Colorado buddy!
I can build it to order… I have some BN drives en route. It has f5 bindings and matrix 2s on it. 2 Single foc boxes. But you can change those out. I haven’t started on the battery yet so what ever you want to spend in that aspect. You can Pm me for more detail.
But I will beat the trampa price before shipping and with a battery. (Maybe not a 12s7p but a battery nine the less)
@theref does quality work and easy to work
As the dude abides
Can vouch for the @TheRef as well having just bought a battery and a deck from him to put together a very similar build, both in parts and purpose to what you have, and it would have been a cheaper to go with a complete build from him and would have if that would have been an option at the time.
