How are ace's out of the box, specifically the 44's? I've had my thunders for three years now and whilst I really like them and the groove i've worn into them at this point they're just a headache; snapped a kingpin, replaced it but it's never really sat right in the hole causing the back truck to occasionally freak the fuck out and wobble, mounting holes are fairly worn out too. bought one of the rebuild kits in the hope it'd sort it out but the back ends still dodgy so I just want some trucks I can slap on and not have to worry about.

They're awesome but night and day compared to Thunders, while they are more responsive they actually turn instead sharply lean.

I still really want mag plates even though Iíll probably break them. If anyone has a set or knows any place that I can order them from please let me know.

Damn! Yeah man Iím in the USA and donít even know how to add them to the cart lol. You speak swedish? Lol.

Not really. I'm from Finland and I do know some Swedish as it's mandatory to learn in school here but I absolutely suck at it. I ordered a pair from there about a year ago. I sent the dude an email and worked it all out with him in English. Dude was very helpful. Here's the contact page:

if they do then theyíd be better trucks then Indys.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

44's are such a perfect, but awkward width.

44s 8 3/8" which is 8.375 which should get rounded up to 8.38 not 8.35 (doesn't matter a  shit but c'mon, basic maths)

And I believe 55s are still 8 7/8"

I didn't even think of that. Me and Ace are retarded.

I contacted him and heís a super nice guy, great customer service. However, after shipping itís $50 in USD here which is the price of a brand new pair of trucks. Not worth it for baseplates Iíll most likely break.

Thatís a bummer. I canít remember what I ended up paying for mine but I justified it with my broken leg and inability to skate back then and that I needed all the help I can get when coming back from the injury. I donít even know if I notice any difference to normal plates but it doesnít really matter. I like my setup and in the end thatís all that counts. 😊

Anyone else notice Daan Van Der Linden skating Ace's in his new Nike SB part? Wasn't he on Indy before?

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but Ace has officially cut ties with Diamond Supply Co.
They are on their own, doing their own distribution.

Daan has been skating Aceís consistently in recent months and hasnít gone back to Indy. AA was on them but looks like he went back to Indy. Those purple coping eaters are cool for putting on a shelf but I donít know how people skate those things.

I've been lurking this thread for a while now and based on what I've seen and read, it seems like Ace finally got their quality control in fucking order. Gonna get some 44's to try out on my 8.5 board. Glad I don't have to fuck with Khiro pivot cups/Krux bushings(right?).

Have you seen this mad new colourway? https://www.oldskullskateboards.com/ace-trucks-44-classic-purple-coping-eater-trucks-set-of-2/


those look like a rejected krux colorway.

Impossible, all Krux are rejected colorways...I mean who the fuck thinks hot dog trucks would sell?

Haha, yeah skating colored trucks would make me feel like I was a toddler. Skating those...yeesh. Although I will say Ace is the only company making a copper colorway truck. I kinda dig it.

Yes. The ace cups will blow out, it's just their nature.

I'm just gonna keep putting the Krux cushions/Khiro pivot cups in my Aces (even if the stock are now supposedly of better quality, which seems debatable from what folks here are saying) because they're perfect once they're set up that way and I can't see better quality stock bushings/pivot cups being nearly as good. It's not an expensive modification to make and seems well worth it thus far.
