You're a kook if you care what trucks someone puts on their board.

I'm pretty sure they just took their hollow hangar and put it on the non-forged, team baseplates

Same here, they're good trucks. Plus if they help you skate better and people see you shred they're not gonna care that you ride mini logos, if my tricks pop higher and I have more control and consistency I'm happy. I could ride my Indy 149 and be a cool guy but they're not for me, too high and heavy for ME, I gotta pop extra and jump a few mm higher so I can land my tricks and after a kickflips or 2 a heel flip and some other 2 tricks I'm winded

That's 99% what's up cause the inside told me they were working on doing gc hollows/ non forged hollow version of standard thunders

Just spend 45 minutes doing it on an old skateboards grip.

looks like its just the hollow lights on a standard baseplate (slightly higher) instead of the forged that they used to come with. its a good idea.

okay i got it,

so i recently been on a truck swap and test run, and i disregard what i felt about venture lo.

theyre good trucks. nice low and control but that pushed out hangar design or the geometry with the cylinder bushings makes the turn response slow so tight and deep turns are somewhat a hassle but nothing too major if you dont mind tic tac ing a little. the ventures lo height and tight stable turn style make them good for control on tricks, my kickflips were very popped, controlled and caught and all my other tricks felt very on point with pop and all

now i definitely can tell you, mini logos are ventures but with a quicker deeper turn, you get the nice pop and control like ventures but you also get a thunder/a bit faster indy deep turn. so ventures that turn quicker and deeper=mini logo trucks

yes

mini logo has always been a price point brand and in just about any industry a price point product automatically means its inferior to what the brands standard is.

Where did you find a pic of the new truck? I will buy them in a heartbeat as long as there's no thunder logos on the hanger and they leave it raw.

the change in height is 1mm... it's literally the least needed change ever. on 147s you're still better off running 1/8 risers.

i like that theyre finally doing thunder gc hollows, i know some wont agree with me but the cast plates/team plates give more board feel cause of the solid weight compared to the feather light stronger forged plates where the weight is in the hangars rather than whats attached to your board(the baseplates) its like the more that you can feel something there the more you can FEEL whats there. thats why i could never really ride thin plates or forged cause that paper thin weight makes the board feel a little imbalanced like

board weight=2
forged plates=1
hangars=2
wheels=1

rather than say

board weight=2
cast plates=2
hangars=2
wheels=1

where the weight is more balanced and solid overall
yes

Just cast plates with hollow axles and pins, nice to have options! Curious about the design, if they are changing the cast mold to accommodate the forged pin (different spines) or using a different pin altogether.

Been running ti hangers with krux pins and cast plates...

The one thing cast plates provide is a less 'rattley/cheap' feel, hard to explain, it just feels a bit more solid.

Description doesn't match up, but the image is weird, could it be a thicker forged plate? Rad.

hardware isn't created equal :o I bought some thunder bolts I can't use. The heads are too small, when tightened down they sink way below the grip! Not to mention the metal seems cheap and plasticky. There's a certain type of bolt I need now..

Been riding shorty's hardware since day 1 and never had a problem. Phillips. Get 1" always just to be safe. And if you're running risers get the correct length hardware. Don't turn this into a page and a half of fuckin' hardware talk.

Shorty's silverados/lights are the best bolts period.  The nuts are shorter so the nyloc grips lower on the threads.  No discussion to be had about hardware.

The only ocd I have on bolts is Philips always, I have an odd feeling Allen key doesn't stay tight even though the tops have nothing to do with the nylon lock or threads. Idk I just feel if they're easy to tighten then they're easy to loosen.

Been riding those bronze56k just because bronze56k

FALSE.

That is the worst hardware, because the nuts are so short, unless you have the tool straight on it's not going to grip, making the while process one infuriating pain in the ass. Good luck getting those on with ventures.
