210lbs. I am now riding these new Aces with the old hard-as-fuck Ace stock bottom bushings with the stock washers, and no top bushing. Two stock Ace top washers flipped upside down for each truck, and the kingpin nuts flipped upside down and tightened down far enough to allow some pretty insane wobble but enough to make the washers catch right before it hits wheelbite. Took me only a day to get used to it and now Iím addicted. The sound when I roll, the carve, the challenge..it gets me stoked. Also running three speed rings on the inside of each wheel, one on the outside, and my axle nuts flipped opposite and tightened flush with enough wiggle room for the wheels.

People like you are why it took me so long to try aces again. Making them shits sound like a rubicks cube to setup.
Man the long board truck thing killed indy for me. I was willing to set aside the racism, but long boarding, gtfo... - DH

To each their own. Some people, including myself get bored and/or unsatisfied and like experimenting. I did this over the winter actually, on my Stage 2 Aceís and really liked it, but once I got these new ones I wanted to see how things would be leaving them stock. Since I weigh more than most on a board, when the new stock bushings really started to break in, leaving them loose and stock actually gave me more wheelbite when Iíd lean than when I revisited this crazy ass no top bushing set-up. Like I said, the washers catch it before they hit wheelbite and the hard bottom bushing keeps it more stable than youíd think.

It makes tricks more challenging and requires more muscle strength around your ankles when youíre trying to balance on one foot while pushing. Havenít bombed a hill yet, Iím sure the speed wobbles might be insane, so that could be the only downside. I suppose I run the risk of loosening the kingpins faster or just straight snapping one, but Iím not gonna sit and worry about it. Like Matt Rodriguez said, ďthose that feel it, feel it, itís not for everyone. Itís meant to be enjoyedĒ.

Yessir! Even tho they measure 8.35" but that's ACE's fault for labeling them 8.25" waaaaaaay back in the day.

Yes! I almost wanna snatch them up, but I've got three sets of 44s already, one with mag plates, so I don't really need more. 🤔

So long ago. As soon as I got em I stripped em. I used goof off on a sponge and lots of rubbing with said sponge.
 Nothing too strong since I remember my friends old Gullwing Mags fucked up cause he let them sit on fucking strong industrial stripper haha! Shits cracked!

There's been some big guys (200+) on here of late running Aces so I wanted to offer up Doh Dohs as a worthwhile option to explore. Someone - probably Rob? - mentioned a while back they fit pretty well in Aces, albeit with an extra thread showing due to a slightly shorter top bushing. I've been experimenting with Ace setups (stock, Krux, Bones) and I'm really feeling black (100a) Doh Dohs; even tightened a bit extra there's plenty of turn without the floppiness I (220ish) was getting with Krux bushings.

Hard MiniLogo bushings are also an option (same height as stock ACEs).

The Deluxe Supercush bushings in 97 and 99 also fit Ace trucks.  The 94 do not, they are standard Indy height.

Sorry if this has already been addressed
What risers fit flush?
When using a Krux kingpin, do you need to shave the bushings for it to fit?

Not sure about the first one, I usually just trim risers if need be, easy with soft ones I guess. With the old aces, the top bushing was a bit tall for the krux pin so unless you tried very hard, you had to shave a bit. I think the new ones are the same though I am not certain.

If you ride loose (and if you are on ACEs, why wouldn't you be) they are too tall for the Krux pin if you want to be safe in knowing the pin has been secured in the nut's nylon; I'm either going to shave them down, just use the Krux top (92a vs 91a) and ACE bottom...or finally grab some plates / new aces and not fux with the krux anymore.

ACE was willing to float me some new plates under warranty as my mounting holes bloobed out on my magplates but I didn't accept, they're old and been through the ring; it would feel wrong to take new ones.
