Re: Loaded Vanguard Carbon Cast Ronin Single VESC 10S4P

yea, just fiber is fine, its actually more flexible probably. I would just skip the fake carbon vinyl though, it usually just looks fake and thats about it. fiber only enclosure is transparent, which is kinda cool imo! :)

Re: Loaded Vanguard Carbon Cast Ronin Single VESC 10S4P

using as a heat-sink with the aluminum powder was an innovative way of thinking! How is it working, the motor staying cool ?

Re: Loaded Vanguard Carbon Cast Ronin Single VESC 10S4P

with a dual setup, 2x 6355 is already pretty overkill. i started with dual and realized I dont need it around where I live. its just extra noise, extra weight, extra space for one more ESC, and it somehow consumes more energy than a single motor setup. last time I tried my range felt reduced by 20-3...

Re: Loaded Vanguard Carbon Cast Ronin Single VESC 10S4P

hey man, yea, go ahead, Im really really happy with all the vanguards details and can really just recommend everything. on topic of the wheels/gearing/motor: my favourite wheels are still the abec 90mm 75A (not available anymore, guess the 78A is pretty much the same though, dont think youll feel mu...

Re: Loaded Vanguard Carbon Cast Ronin Single VESC 10S4P

flex is really great now with 5 layers bamboo and 4 intermediate GFK layers (plus the extra UD carbon stripes around the middle region and as 45° tilted crosses for edge to truck force transfer. basically its just a little bit too flex - just enough so that it will be spot on after I wrapped it in a...

Re: Production vs custom e-board

if you want tidy, the jet spud is probably my best achievement when it comes to craftmanship - I finally learnt how to use a router by then. :p I love flex, not only does it dampen vibrations from bad roads and sidewalks, but its also awesome to play with when you carve. basically you push outwards ...

Re: Production vs custom e-board

while my first board certainly wasnt better than my evolve, I started to refine and refine and refine - grew really addicted to this hobby and with every board I accomplished something else. by now, production boards are for me too many compromises. stance, concave, flex level, trucks, maneuverabili...

Shape is crazy !!!yes told you my think about flex and epoxy ... not that good. But your deck is really simply beautifull ENJOY !!! hmm, so far I dont find epoxy/bamboo/gfk to be a bad combination. my diy board is very flexy, but most likely because I used only 4 bamboo layer. tonight I added anoth...

Re: Loaded Vanguard Carbon Cast Ronin Single VESC 10S4P

yea, added it ontop to cover wire channels! kinda suprising because that thinn veneer already made the board noticably stiffer. :o maybe because I used epoxy? lhb style grip is too much of a hassle for me and tbh, i like the "white blurr" effect of the vicious. :) still riding the board when its dry...

Re: Loaded Vanguard Carbon Cast Ronin Single VESC 10S4P

Re: Anti-Spark Stuck On From Charger?

same thing happened to my APS switch 2 weeks ago - stuck on ON position after a few weeks of normal use. was particularly bad for me, since my battery isnt protected by a low voltage power cutoff BMS, so it got discharged to 2.0V/cell cause I didnt use the board for a while. :(

Re: Evolve Carbon AT with 50km+ range

nope, sorry, dont know much about the esc. from my feeling and what others report (people that use a battery from me): the board seems to accelerate better - maybe its cause the battery can deliver more current. *shrug*

@okp totally get your perspective - its looking really rbust and sexy on the unikboard! :) @Rikobonito I went with my own pattern now - also with epoxy resin since I didnt have anything else. measured the thickness of the vanguard flex 2 (about 1.1mm with my own added fibreglass topcoat) and stayed ...

Re: Alienboard v2 | Perso 38" | APS 3.3kW 170kv | ADS | 10s5

hmz, the unikparts LOOK great, but I dont like most of the design ideas. no fan at all of the evolve style drive gears, because they need extra space on the axle, which gives you a larger track width (less grip) and more load on the axle (been through tons of bent evolve street axles). on the mount ...

cool! please make them compatible with 9-15mm belts! your adapters back then didnt work für 15mm since I needed them 6mm further in! someone on enertion forums made adapters + mounts already and is getting ready to order a batch: http://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/interest-in-cronin-mount/9862

Re: Custom Truck Adapters for APS/TB Motor Mounts (here: Ron

Neat little mod there, but I was wondering how you kept it all parallel? Surely if the tube is even 0.5* off, then the belts won't line up and track properly? actually that was my main concern with the method okp showed - I kept thinking about how to line up the motor mounts perfectly and came up w...

Re: Loaded Vanguard Carbon Cast Ronin Single VESC 10S4P

on my last board (the jet spud in my signature), I didnt use a top gfk layer - think you can skip that and just fill up the wires with some putty. :) the drive wheel is from torqueboards / DIYelectricskateboard. its the 12mm version, which is wide enough to actually work with a 15mm belt (got only a...

Did you add the extra layer of carbon fiber on top of the wires in the end? Are you using 15mm-275 mm belt with the AVS drive system? hey man, I added just 1 small patch of glass fiber ontop of each channel (non conductive) and one complete layer of glass fibers over the complete surface just to ma...

Re: Evolve Carbon AT with 50km+ range

yes, it does, red led comes on - its also cuts off power when the voltage is too low (some healthy 3.XV/cell, dont remember exact values anymore).
