2021 Build/Shop Plans and Goals

Much like the Mileage goal thread, this thread is for your Build and workshop plans/goals for the year 2021.

I’ll go first, although I’ll add some more in a couple hours.

Shop Goals:

  • Get CNC Working
  • Fix 3D Printer
  • Create Screw and Nut Organizer

Build Goals:

  • Finish the long talked about Ground Control ReBuild
  • Build a very light, very tanky short board for grocery runs

Yah haha all I have is a tiny baby 3 inch jaw ballhead panavise. While it’s come in handy it’s nothing like a real bench vise

We don’t need Amass for that.
Meanwhile we have some high experienced dye experts here. @glyphiks and @PixelatedPolyurethan did some great black xt90s I think.

Yeah dying them black is easy peasy. From what I understand, colours are a bit harder

Edit: excellent, i didn’t make any goals so i don’t have to feel shit about not achieving them :ok_hand:

:white_check_mark:

:grimacing: still in progress, but I found a local guy who is willing to help me out getting them made out of glass fiber. Probably after winter thou. A bit too cold at the moment to proper cure epoxy.

:white_check_mark: …and was riding with it once… not sure what to do with that one. Just don’t use/need it. Should try to sell it maybe.

:white_check_mark: got it proper light and it was fun, but after changed some parts which did add weight a bit weight again. Still my favorite board.

:white_check_mark: had a good time playing around with inrunner. Just couldn’t get the right gear ratio to make it fit my needs. Currently on 1:6.25 gearing on Full Send Electric 173kV motors. Proper setup for more difficult terrain.

Well, 99% ready… the angry bee build. Got some practice in painting motors and decks. Definitely learned a lot there. If I just wouldn’t be too lazy to do the xeniths setup it would already run. Hoping for some good rides next year together with my better half.

Goals for 2022:
Actually not that much. New project at work doesn’t leave me much free time to tinker around. Still goals should be set.
Rebuilding my light weight jump board.
Needs some new motors as the 4year old APS motors are about to give up. I already have some 6384 170kV motors ready painted.
Got some new Idea mounts which need some anodizing and we should be good to go again.
Big goal is a full drive train rebuild of my quad.
I do get wheelbite turning hard with spikes installed, so I need wider trucks. I also want to move away from barrels as they are very close to pop out when ever I turn hard. So two options I have here. Getting some custom Apex Airs, or designing my own trucks. As it’s absolutely new to me I probably would enjoy trying out my own design. I‘m also not very happy with those 8085 and the big bearing situation in bad weather conditions, soooo I might try to get my inrunner to work again which would need a dual stage chain drive. Ideas are already in my head, but we will see if that’s going to work out :sunglasses:

Failed… Sold for what I bought it for though

Cnc profits bought a Prusa, so I guess that counts

Barely had time to ride ground control, let alone rebuild it

#TooBrokeForThis

Done! :white_check_mark:

Coming soon yet slightly less impressive due to getting a stooge chassis instead of the original plan
