Motors Are Here!
The first 100 motors are here and they look great. We are very pleased that all of our specifications - including wiring length, mounting hole threading, and shaft orientation - all look just right.
The next steps regarding the motors are to add pulleys and to carefully assemble motors, belts, drive wheels, and rear trucks to ensure proper belt tension. All of these factor into performance and efficiency.
With the motors in hand the last components needed for our Pre-Production Manufacturing Run are our speed controllers. These have been ordered and are expected to arrive near the end of the month.
Around the Shop
We also recently received another batch of decks and have been working to install foam and on/off switches into all of those.
Last Days to Save
We have pushed back the date before our $200 price increase to February 10th. Several of you were running into problems regarding our new site's shipping calculator. This should now be fixed but if you are still having issues please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in purchasing a second board for yourself or a friend be sure to head over to our store before prices go up next week.
Stay tuned for more updates as our Pre-Production Run gets underway!
Ben, Geoff, and the ZBoard Team
