Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

Small update, still not electric..... but am slowly reinforcing the deck to make it stiff as possible. Ordered some 6K carbon twill, this stuff is incredibly thick compared to the unidirectional carbon I was using previous, pretty sure if I had of used this stuff off the bat this deck would be the d...

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

Thanks man! Yea, more than likely it is because the fibers are not sandwiched together perfectly, there are a few areas that had more resin than fiber unfortunately. Am going to screw hardwood strips along the perimeter of the battery space basically boxing it in, and than put two more full layers o...

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

Yea man sounds good to me, let me know how much you are asking for the larger space cell as well as an email so I can paypal you some money. If you feel confident about the quality you can just get them to ship it straight to me too, if it makes it any easier.

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

Settled in Australia now, and had some time to find a board for my trailer and set it up. Rode around with a 14 year old kid to test it out and everything held up well, a little interesting to get going with all the extra weight, but once you are moving it is quite easy to push. Will have to get som...

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

Yep, just threads on. Took a 76mm piece of stock and made a duplicate of what is on the end of the truck already (7.92mm shaft with 5/16-24 threads), than flipped it around and drilled and tapped the 5/16-24 threads on the inside to about 30mm deep, than came in after with an 8mm drill bit and took ...

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

Thank you sir! Yep wanted to wrap the edges to help give as much dimension as possible, for more strength.............unfortunately, some of the resin and carbon wrapped around to the other side onto the grip tape, and is now no good. Thought they sprayed this grip on, turns out it is just tape, whi...

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

Re: MBS All Terrain 100mm All Terrain Flywheels

Interesting!

They don't mention what the compound is though, would imagine it would be thane, but never know if it is strictly and an offroad wheel. The rounded contact patch with knobs would be useless on the street.

Re: How To DIY Fiberglass All-In-One Deck

You can see in this picture that my board isn’t 100% symmetrical. I think this is because I used my old deck as a template instead of using a paper template. Love what your doing here Man! Though...why not take the time to make the deck symmetrical? That is waay out to lunch, and think you will fin...

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

The brackets will be recessed into the board, but not very much at all, and yes the recesses in the deck will be reinforced with carbon. Could definitely see the deck cracking as is, just for the simple fact that I exposed the veneers, it would probably delaminate the layers real quickly! Am waiting...

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

Scott did mention that recessed mounting brackets could be an issue. Were yours flat originally and you recessed them? Not completely sure what you mean by the question. If you are asking if the deck was originally recessed for the brackets, than no it was not, I took the material out. My last set ...

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

That is an incredibly kind offer, and I thank you very much for the offer!....however, pretty sure I will be able to make this bag work. With the planned plug put in place I will not have any obscene corners where stretching would be needed so think I should be good.

Cheers

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

The plug may work, depending on the foam. I would strongly suggest chucking the foam in a vacuum bag and leaving it overnight first. If it is a low density foam it will depress/squish in a vacuum and this will stop it giving you a nice square finish so potentially stop the batteries fitting in. It ...

Re: The Heavyweight (Hub Motor Build)

What I have been known to do is get two sheets of pvc vinyl (resin won't stick to it so easy clean when dry) and saturate the fibres when they are between these sheets. Have then left them sitting on the bench for a few hours while I go have lunch, come back and peel off the plastic. This leaves th...
