Man... when the fuck is this creaky pivot cup gonna shut the fuck up?!

Only plus side is it makes it tougher to hear my old man knees.
If you have bones speed cream try putting a drop in each cup, helps for a bit.

They'll never go away on their own.

Put a drop of oil or wax or soap shavings in the pivot cup and the squeaks will cease.

Anyone skated the 03'S? If so, how did you find them?

I had a set of the ACE lows (03's) last year. They felt a little too low for the turning radius and I ended up experiencing a lot wheel of bite. I tried using bones mediums, then bones hards with 52mm wheels and kept getting pitched when turning too sharp. Also the kingpin stuck out pretty high and would catch when grinding. The highs (33's) feel a lot better in my opinion.

But isn't that the same problem you will encounter with any pair of low trucks ? I don't see the point of riding low trucks unless all you do is skate the manual pad at your local park or just enjoy tight trucks.

I need new trucks for my 8' board, because the Thunder 147's aren't cutting it for me. I just can't get them loose enough. I had Indy 149's before, and I just took off the washers and finger-tightened the kingpin nut and it was great, but the 149's are just a little too big for the 8'. So should I get some Indy 139's and just take off the washers, or get ace 33's? I LOVE loose trucks so I think aces would work, I'm just worried about the cheaper build.

ACE for sure, but here are the pros and cons

ACE:
Pros - best turning truck on the market, lighter then indy's, grind great, look cool, skater owned
Cons - some people have bent them (I have not in the years I have been riding them), pivot cup blows out easy

Indy:
Pros - Old guys will give you a high five for your conformity, some people like the slower turning, the heaviness will help build your ankle muscles
Cons - turn slow, heaviest trucks on the market, you have to get new bushings to make them turn right, old guys who don't skate wear their t shirts

half of that post was opinion and obviously slightly sarcastic.
you haven't tried the stage 11s.
Ace's are great trucks no doubt but to say Indys are slow is wrong.

I was surprised earlier when I clicked on page 4 and didn't see a Vegan Shawn post, ballyhooing all aspects of ACE trucks.

I can usually agree on things shawn says on here, but there's more than one version of indys out, theres a little something for everyone.
Ace's pivot area, i honestly don't know if that part has a name, looks way too thin and just throws me off looking at it.

i might have made this comment before about compairing ace to indy, but this is what i think.

ace turn A LOT more. if you set up two boards, one with ace and one with indy, and you want them to turn the same, the indys will feel a hell of a lot looser when you step on the board. with ace, you still get the turn youd get out of a super loose truck, but since you dont have to loosen them as much, they ride a bit more stable. thats just how ive experienced the two.

I'm probably going to try some 33's the next time I need trucks. My question is why does Ace get a pass from most yet Diamond doesn't? It's the same company. There's a fucking diamond in the Ace logo!

I'm going to venture a guess here.  Ace makes a good product for a fair price, consumers like that. 
Then there's this, which probably costs $80.

So I've ridden Indy 149s for years and years. My friend gave me a set of Ace 44s and I gotta say, they're pretty rad. They're much snappier than the Indys and have a much sharper turn.
Indy 149s are a jumbo jet, Ace 44s are a fighter jet.
I dig 'em.

Ace gets a pass because people like the trucks.....

Go start a thread on how the hardware stacks up.....

I rode a friends set up at the park the other day, they turn a little better, but he still had to take off washers, get different bushings to get them fairly loose.

There's nothing else because I'm fucking right.  I guarantee if they were called Diamond trucks instead of Ace NOBODY here would fuck with them.

I agree with you on that. The people who skate ace, and the people who wear diamond shit, are two completley different types of people. If the marketing was done differently, i too believe both products would cater to the same crowd. But it doesnt matter to me, because ace trucks are complete shit, and i wouldnt wear a cheesy ass diamond tshirt if someone paid me to.

I switched from Indy to Ace a few years ago and have ridden both the 44's and the 55's. They are sick, but I am tired of replacing the pivot cups. Right now, my front truck is an Ace hanger on an Indy base plate because the Ace base plate warped around the pivot cup hole and broke.

I'm going to finish riding the 55's until I grind through the axle and then switch back to Indys. Can't wait to get a pair of 169's.
