This was a pretty kewl ETT. Maybe my most favorite one even though it didn't work out. I can see them pulling this off if they take a second crack (ha!) at it.

I agree, among the best ETT.
I didn't expect it to last past the first turn. Amazing

The people in the comments don't really understand the point of this.

Thats impressive, wonder how much of a difference it would make useing a piece of lexan as the top sheet.

I think that the bottom would break sooner b/c there would be more flex.

I'd be curious if it was made same thickness but one piece if that would make it stronger. It would be really cool if it was tempered, pick your moment and ollie up onto a rock, the whole thing shatters into a zillion pieces.

Yes itd be more flexy but the lexan would keep everything together, so when the glass does crack you can still rip around on a sweet spider cracked glass board.


Im sure theres some kind of glass that cant be cracked so easily.

They sandwiched a layer between the two pieces so it wouldn't shatter, just like windshields etc. The lexan wouldn't do much to improve it I don't think
