149s with wide wheels it is. 44s and 55s just won't work on this set up.

Pretty bummed on my truck situation atm, noticed my board was sounding weird yesterday took off the hanger this morning to find the kingpin on one of my Thunder 147's was loose, hammered it back in, only to find that its loose again after skating today. Has anyone ever successfully fixed this or is my shit totally fucked, had the same problem with indy's before and never was able to fix it.  :'(

Cheers!, already on a new set of 149's hi's and they are awesome!, I think the problems I have with pivot cups and kingpins is from not using a bottom washer and riding my trucks quite loose(wobbly)

I have a cruiser with solid stage 10 129s. I love the way they turn. My popsicle has hollow stage 11 reynolds 139s, but I don't like the feeling of them as much.

Anyone else prefer solids?

i do, cant skate forged or thin baseplates. i need that super solid meaty gravity cast standard baseplate and solid whole truck feel. i know the guy who did the truck reviews on skateboardingismylifetime feels the same when i was reading his review on forged indy hollows, forged take away this solid heavy feeling you want for more board feel. i guess you could get use to it but just having a solid truck is like that whole driving stick with clutch rather than the new sterring wheel pedal shifters. or maybe its like skating a regular solid 7 ply deck compared to something freaky like the mullen uber light, never had one but i assume that hollow inside with Styrofoam insert or whatever would throw you off cause its lighter and missing the solid one piece feel

side note, has anyone tried destructos? both the D1 and D2 and the Proś of any of the sort? gonna get a pair of D2 soon to try and wanted to know if anyone has had a set and opinon/review

they look really nice and solid and i noticed for some reason the bushngs and shape is different on the D1 and D2

the 1ś have hard looking cylinder bushings and are high for a mid

the 2ś look more like a mid and come with conical bushings, but the 2 pros come with this bones bushing copycat

also thinking of getting some fury, industrial and tensors to try before the year ends.

ive already got and skated all the thunders(all of them in every size except 145 hi and 151) indy stage 11 139 hi and low and 149 hi, theeve hi and lo, venture lo, silver m class, mini logos, royal IV and the new ones, krux tall 4.0 and 5.0 and the downlows, ive stepped on a few friends setups with aces and they feel solid and carvy but theyre too loose for me so i knew i shouldnt get them cause i cant ride like surfers

i just cant get enough trucks, so far i love the way my theeves are but im still hunching to find what would spruce my skating to its top.

the reynolds are cast but have hollow kingpins and axles.

I agree solid indys skate better even though they're heavier. there's more control when you're skating whereas with hollow trucks the board gets flung around too easily or something. it's hard to describe. and the solid ones turn more surfy when they're broken in.

I find the hollow everything is the culprit to the 'weird feeling', at least with Thunders and especially coupled with ti hangers (sooo light tho :))

Ti Thunder hangers (light) + team plate (height) + Krux kingpin (clearance and weight offset of stock teams with solid king) + Indy 88a conicals w/ a flat bottom washer = a stellar combo (lots effort and $$ to get there tho). FWIW that combo is the same weight as Indy Tis with bones bushings.

I'd wager the Reynolds plates/pins with the TI indy hanger would be a great combo as well. Sort of right in the middle.

Wouldn't that be he same height as a standard Indy though? That's my problem with 11s.

i feel you with truck height problems but all in all id still choose gravity cast over thin/forged baseplates, the height might be something to deal with but the feel of flimsy weak light trucks throws me off harder. its weird you can feel how flimsy forged/thin baseplates are when you pop and land, its just not solid. like a punch with and without gloves or something like that.

took the extra washers(speed rings) off my 149 team hi's and holy shit, it feels amazing with my 8.3 and classic f4's, also lost the risers with the added height, using the rebuild kit bushings(100a I think) I got in the winter which are still going strong, no bottom washer, really stoked on my ride atm

Giving the Ace 03 a second chance this weekend, but this time they are entirely bastardized.

I purchased Magnesium baseplates, and 95a Doh Doh's that I had to sand down to fit the Ace bushing size. I'll report back with my findings after proper demoing.

*also Khiro small pivot cups, as any company using hard plastic cups (minilogo) is doing it wrong*

I managed to find a set on strange-house.net. I think I purchased the second to last set.

Damn, if only I knew sooner they probably had hi mag plates. Thanks though, cheers!

What was wrong with them the first time round? Thinking of trying out a pair of stock ones on my next setup...

What was wrong with them was probably more a matter of what was wrong with me. I couldn't find my center as far popping the board, going from thunders to ace. It felt as if  I had absolutely no control whatsoever. This really only applies to my street setup though, as I happily rock Ace's on my transition setup.

When I was a spring chicken with ridiculous board control I could swap between any component and skate exactly the same. I swear my sub conscious still functions off that mindset, but the elder body does not.

Funny....I do the exact opposite.....kinda....ACEs on street cause they are super fun riding looser....and thunders on my ramp set up..... Gives a longer wheelbase and I ride tighter trucks.....thunders make sense to me if you aren't carving.....

soft ? huh
had a bad experience with soft pivot cups(not khiro), trucks turning like shit, and finally got a hole in each after one session
bought some indy aftermarkets and they are way better than stock ones, as the bushings...

Are Indy Stage 10 baseplates lower than Stage 11s? I know the Stage 10 height standard was 53.5 but idunno if the extra height is in the baseplate or the hanger.

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.

It's the hangar, stage 11 weren't anything but an extension to the pivot stem

I wouldn't skate a truck cracked that bad. If you send it to nhs they'll hook you up with a new set.
was that switch ollie in a turban at 1:18 ?.....trend watch
