Psychotiller's 6x2 Pneumatic Wheel Hubs - BUILD

Christmas came early for me! :D At last, the long wait is over. These things are absolutely beautiful! I still need to do a few things before I can get rolling (timing belt, new deck, and EC5 connectors/parallel my two 3s8000mah lipos), but I wanted to get this new build/thread started. Have to show...

Re: Need ideas for a non-invasive battery mount on eboard!

Buy some velcro strips (the kind with the adhesive backing) and stick two pieces (rough side) to the top of your enclosure where the straps go across. Line them up with the loop/buckle end of the straps (I recommend two straps) and secure them on. Because the straps are felt material, they'll adhere...

Re: Can brushless motors get water damage?

I've rode through rain a few times and have had no problems (even with water getting inside my enclosure - yikes!). Just run your motor for a minute or so when you're done riding and the heat should evaporate any moisture. And/or take the motor apart and give it a little detailed TLC (it's not a bad...

Re: Trampa EMTB Chaindrive V2

The streetcarver is pretty badass looking, but I was more so wondering if I could put my Caliber trucks (for example) on one of their blank decks. It looks like the hole patterns might be different but it could be the angle of the pictures.

How's the combination of the flexy deck and pneumatics? My second board will be sitting on pneumatics (with Psychotiller's gorgeous hubs :D ), but I'm torn between a stiff drop-through or a drop-down (which I think is more flexy than the former) or something different if suggested. I imagine you bou...

Re: Working on Custom Carbon Fiber Deck

I love that your design is symmetrical both horizontally and vertically. Not sure how you all feel about drop-down decks, but this is a pretty gorgeous example of a carbon fiber one: http://www.axsgear.com/blog/axslongboar ... x-by-omen/

Re: Board Suspension?

The Avenues have my attention too. Almost seems too good to be true. I'm concerned that because they're so new, we don't know how they hold up over time. It's scary to think about that little piece of metal warping or breaking in the middle of a ride.

Re: OpenSource Handheld Controller (E-go similar)

Any reason for thumb slider over trigger throttle? The index finger feels more natural given it's more articulated, which would give you more precise control. I think Badwolf has it down (also Alien made a nice one but I think they've been out of stock). Can we create a poll to see what people prefer?

Re: Drilling a keyway in a motor shaft : advice needed

Yes, a very steady hand. I recommend anchoring your forearm on your desk and pivoting it (or leg/knee if you are crouched on an apartment balcony like I was. lol). Same with your other hand, which holds the motor. I marked off the shaft with a Sharpie and flattened it to that point. If you haven't b...

Re: OpenSource Handheld Controller (E-go similar)

Maybe a modified thumb throttle? Never played with one in person, but they're cheap for experimentation and there's lots of kinds.

Any reason why slider/thumb over trigger/index?

RE: Controller Triggers > thumb sliders/joysticks! It feels much less natural using my thumb than it does my index finger on a trigger.

Re: Custom Battery Packs? INTERESTED?

I'm still not understanding 7s as being a default minimum, vs 6s. It just seems like it overly complicates things given the 1s difference, which makes those of us using 6s-rated ESCs and chargers SOL. Regarding your double-stack layout - will that allow the batteries to cool effectively enough? My v...

Re: Compression Molded Carbon Fiber Deck

If you're riding on rough roads, I feel safe saying it's a necessity that you get softer wheels or even better - pneumatics. Not sure what the durometer of mine were, but I was riding 83mm abec clones and with less than 300mi on them (less than 6mos of riding) the core of my drive wheel shattered, l...

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

Evolve, Boosted, E-go. You have your standard enclosure and a heatsink that mounts directly to that enclosure. That would be the most ideal. You get the heatsink w/ fins benefit + it's still attached to a larger aluminum enclosure which would provide additional cooling if needed but shouldn't matte...
