Got the 99's in 54, can't wait to set them up. Just gotta tear through these shitty shop wheels first.

its kind of stupid how slick the 101s are... it doesn't even feel like a powerslide and makes no noise :( i might have to get the 99s
I've had my 101s for a little over a week now and they are starting to screech
I've hated immigrants ever since I got here.

yeah, the first few slides were slippery as fuck, but they're getting better!

Nallid bought some for himself last week and fronted me money for mine too. I got 52 classic 99s and took em out for the first time today. went to Roosevelt skatepark in SJ and was expecting some slippin and slidin but they actually gripped really well and slid super good on the ledge. I think Nallid flatspotted his so if they don't smooth out and Circle-A doesn't swap em out im sure he will be hitting up that warranty action. Thanks again Nallid!

Did you get new bearings as well?
Do you tighten your wheels up a lot too?
Both those things make new wheels feel a bit weird.
Just a thought.

yeah new bones swiss, maybe thats the case. ill keep skating em regardless but glad to hear they feel better after a bit

Spitfire is blowing it lately Darkstar and Bones have  flatspot guarantees on their wheels. If formula 4 doesn't work out I will never trust them again

pretty sure darkstar just has that because not enough people ride their wheels to prove them wrong.
Look I'm not selling anything that doesn't have my jizz on it. I don't care how much is offered.

I was all excited after I set them up last Friday, I hauled ass out of my apartment complex, got 50 feet and hit a pebble and ate shit, hard.  Flatspot in literally 30 seconds.  I thought it might skate out, but no luck so far.

Hooked up my set today!  Love them!  Obviously I only have a few hours on them but so far they're really good.  The spot I skate is really smooth but very grippy if that makes sense.  Your 180/360 tricks need to be fully turned, you will not slide out.  Anyway with these wheels they felt pretty much the same rolling around and shit but they were definitely more forgiving when you want to slide.  I'll check back in after a few more sessions and see if I change my mind.

It's funny, you know when you see web ads for say, spitfire classics, and of course they say, "they're the best wheels, don't flatspot, grip when you want and slide when you want" but in reality they're kind of shitty? For me these wheels actually are that wheel that every wheel says they are. I've been skating them for like two months and I'll probably never skate anything besides F4's after this.
damn those yarys bout those squats

Verdict? Show me any wheel that can withstand a similar situation.
F4s stepped the game up a notch after 30 years of urethane wheels.

Those are brand new wheels, I'd be pissed. You coudn't flatspot stfs if you tried.

But he didn't flatspot his by trying. He hit a rock going fast which would've made a STF wheel flatspot too.

I'm not mad at all though, the wheels are nice, even if they do sound like a helicopter right now. Like what he said above, that would have happened to ANY wheel. Just a bad luck.

Ahh hitting a rock at high speeds the cause of flatspots since 2013

How to Defeat the Kraken in 5 Minutes
 •It’s recommended you unlock Stage 2 in Stage Select before attempting to unlock this achievement. This achievement can be unlocked on the “Easy” difficulty setting.
•In Leo’s campaign, the Kraken first appears with three tentacles and a giant mouth in it’s center. Avoid the mouth’s lunge, or the Kraken will swallow you whole, wasting time. For now, all you need to do is attack the glowing blue parts of the Kraken’s mouth or it’s tentacles.
•If you’re playing as Jack, the Kraken will appear far away, forcing you to throw chunks of debris at the monster from afar.
•Do enough damage, at the Kraken will charge the aircraft carrier. He’ll push the carrier onto it’s side, and attack while you’re on a small section of the ship.
 •This final part is where you can lose the most time. The Kraken will attempt to throw spinning missiles at you — if you want to defeat the creature in less than five minutes, you’ll need to catch each missile and throw it back at the Kraken while it charges up.
•Catching those missiles mid-air can take practice, but it’s the only tricky section of the fight. Catch the missiles with [Grab], then use [LT / L2] to aim, and [RT / R2] to throw the missile at the glowing blue eye.
•If you fail to catch the missiles, there’s no way to defeat the Kraken under the time limit. If you can master catching missiles, you should have no problem unlocking the achievement.
