Hahaha your post had my laughing for sure, gotta love that old man anxiety.
It's an 8.5 x 32.88 (see the setup thread) ... I probably should have checked the length before impulse buying it ttyt but I was buying a board for my son and just chucked it in the shopping cart to save on shipping. I rode 7.75 for as long as I can remember but as I said, the width isn't really fucking with me as much as I thought it would, I'm guessing half of it is all in my head but it feels like a bit of surfboard when I'm trying tricks. I'll have another few rolls on it and if it doesn't work out I'll just bite the bullet, sell it on here and then pay to get a new board shipped out :-\

Don't worry man if it doesn't work just make sure you remember, wheel base. Gah so much of a difference with this 14 inch compared to my last real with I think 14.18-14.25 wheel base

I don't know how to get back in to the mindset years ago, where I didn't give a shit and just rode Ventures.  My problem lies in I have this idea that I can't skate tranny on them. I need to go watch some Wade Speyer footage.

I think if Thunder 147 Hi's were actually high, or at least the same height as the 149s, I wouldn't be having this problem.

Use team plates or risers? Team plates only add a few MM tho, but it helps.

I skate thunders and small risers on my ramp set up....I don't really want to carve anyhow....longer wheelbase helps too.....

I was going to pick up some ventures yesterday, but the shop didn't have the size I needed  :'(

So instead I pulled the trigger on some AVE stage 11's! Even though I avoided them, I haven't actually rode indys in almost a decade. I figure I'll give them a fair shake and get the ventures anyway, I don't like spending so willy nilly but trucks are an investment lol.

These stage 11's are weird though, I just messed around outside and my immediate impressions were:

-weird turn, super tippy, but slow to actually change direction
-weird pop, way late, but works

weird.

I got these 147 titanium's used from skate santa. I can't even skate right now because of a busted ankle and it's ridiculous how much just having these things in my place is messing with me. I feel like Gollum. They're on ebay in the hopes they go away.

So if you hate risers that stick out as much as I do, Bones fit almost perfectly under Thunders. Way better than anything, includinggiant Thunder risers.

thats crazy i thought only krooked and thunder risers worked for thunders since they dont have the pre drilled holes but just like pre cuts for adjusting

I've always used Shorty's Dooks hard plastic risers with Indy's and Ace and they fit perfectly and don't stick out at all. Six hole drill pattern.

awwww damn you guys reminded me i had a set of theeves, idk how i really feel but ill tie them with indy cause theyre very true turning trucks and good pop response but they kinda lack that special something something that gives personality, they just feel like good true turn trucks but nothing standout

mini logo i actually place above venture, theyre low like a venture lo but feel like a thunder hi so thats a plus
yes

I'm not a truck nerd like the rest of you guys. This thread is nuts, but I enjoy browsing it. Anyway, I've been on this destructors since the spring. 139mm mids. They are all stock and I don't tighten or loosen my trucks when I get them.

Well if I remember correctly from my younger years. Destructos come with VERY good bushings.
