What's your next sizeable purchase?

Okay, crackheads. I always seem to be looking ahead to one thing or another, and I’m wondering what the other esk8 children are up to as well.

My next decently-sized purchase:

50 30Q to build out the 12s4p PCB DRI hooked me up with. I’ll be having a man date battery building session with Linny, and we’ll be using the DRI/Duck Battery Systems build guide found here:

The battery is destined for the Torqueboards TB40 deck also generously provided by the perpetually moist folks at DRI.

What’s next for you animals?

Honestly trying to stem the spending a bit but started buying stuff for a 4WD GD build recently. so thats hard…

See how Black Friday goes…maybe I can hold back for a while. Plenty of other projects at the moment too. Maybe I’ll pause the parts accumulation for a while. See how it goes

Could be motors - (2) TB 6355s (have 2 already) and 4 economical(ish) V6 escs (MakerX?) :joy:

I just blew my whole ass load on the parts for my upcoming flagship build, Mistfall. I had to butcher and sell off all my previous builds to afford it :joy: Im really hoping it will be my last sizeable esk8 purchase for a long while, but I know that is wishful thinking haha.

For example, if LaCroix were to ever dangle some shiny gear drives in front of me for these hypertrucks @Andrew tricked me into buying… :smirk:

Really want either a linier rail upgrade for the workbee or to build another liner rails based CNC. But it’s gonna be spendy.

In the short term I should probably finish the 4wd before spring. Probably not much to buy, just needs time and effort.

I’m seriously considering the Z upgrade. Y is ok, X is meh… Z is :cry:

Building a battery using DRI battery PCB my 6 year old taxed the stickers never to be seen again.
having the balance wires on the PCB is a god send for neat freaks.
Toying with buying a Puck remote, I gave everyone crap for buying them but rode a mates board on Saturday and really liked the feel of it. I know it PPM and no telemetry I cant turn on my lights or tell me when I am having a period but I really want one now.
Waiting for the Vapourgotchi to come back into stock. (I have 2 x GPS iloggers I am playing with atm and I can imagine the Gotchi will be even better) Getting flashbacks of waiting for the next gen enertion remote. On my wishlist before Christmas
Mountain board deck (havent decided + oil slicks)
3D Printer Likely creality Hussyender 3 with an extender kit to take it 400mm.
started building my ebike\emotorbike Battery need to investigate motors Not keen on the 96Volt 8k\12Kw hubs a lot of people are using.
Wife wants an AT board might have to build her something.
Ordering a spintend to check them out.
I did go a little crazy during 11:11 buying some flipsky motors, 100 cells and a but load of 50mm 99% Nickel.
