When I was a kid I went from Fury ball point turning to Tensors and had no idea what was so wrong with my board. Good tines
I've hated immigrants ever since I got here.

When I was a kid I had a set of the first Fury's with a black hanger and blue baseplate and I loved those things.  I had no taste/preference at the time, but I swore by the ball point turning.  I would always carve tight circle pattern's as a way to demonstrate their gimmick to my friends, hahah.  Good times.

Reminds me of my self-employed carpenter buddy whoís 40 and skates an 8Ē baker with tensor lows, huge 58mm wheels and fat Journeyís style DVS or DC shoes with carpenter pants. Heís actually really good and his style on the board isnít bad at all lol.

Try ace classics

Theyíre very good trucks, I like how they feel

I skate mainly street, mostly flat and they feel very responsive in a way, popping and quick turning and carve but not slow and all that like an indy

Idk about wheel bite cause I ride my trucks medium tight but if you donít like indy Iíd highly suggest ace

Now I remember, ace classics remind me of how my indy 109 felt when I was messing around on my zinger, had me on a journey to find that 109 feel but a bigger truck and Iíd say itís ace


yes

My assessment is thunders you get the first 15 degrees of your turn w. no effort.....that's the responsiveness....the rest of the turn is medium and then they bottom out.  An ACE the first few degrees are actually pretty stable like an Indy, but then they just go....like full on slalom turn.  So to me they are different trucks.  The thunder extends the wheelbase, the ACE shrinks it.  Thunders pop quick because of how they are set....ACE feel like a high truck.  Thunders you can get light.... ACEs always heavy. 

I'd go theeve....possibly minilogo.....

This is the best description ever, regarding the difference between Thunder and Ace. Iíd rather go with Indy than Thunder, the 15 degrees of quick turning is almost non-existent, at least Indyís are stable and deep and donít bottom out. But yeah, Ace is king. Quick and deep the whole way through. Havenít tried Theeve, all mini logos in existence should be thrown into a volcano.

 mini logo trucks are legit and your just trying to be a cool guy who probably knocks on anything that isnít hip, like blind and dark star

You probably ride your trucks mega loose and canít even tre flip

You probably own an independent beer cozy cause your a indy lifer and rep it hard cause ride the best f!&% the rest right?

Woah man, was just kidding around. You can ride your mini logos all you want, itís just skateboarding. I donít like Indy trucks all that much, but Iím thinking about getting a tattoo of an Ace guy peeing on a mini logo truck. I also suck and canít do any flips besides a heel and pop shuv and run my trucks pretty loose so I guess you got me there.

I'm riding Theeve, but having skated ML I'd pick them over anything but the big three/theeve. The ML bushings are also excellent.

Theeve cured my madness, they're hollow/light, come in the 8.18 (for 8.25s), come with great bushings (even after they ditched bones and while they're too hard for me, they're still really nice), stable and carve great AND other than putting in soft bones, I can't fuck with them.

Currently riding Indy's and I dig them. Am I missing anything by not trying out some Ace's?
How stable are they at speed?

You talking hillbombing speed or just regular speed?

I skate my Aces pretty loose and have never had wobbles or sketchiness and I'm a big boy on 44s. I channel Andrew Allen in situations where it could get a little shaky.

Nearly everyone I skate with (much to my dismay) are transition skaters, and the majority skate Ace trucks.

They are made for response at fast speeds IMO, and I use them for street.

Personally, I love Aces on everything except big, speedy bowls. For me they get too squirelly at higher speeds and don't feel that stable. Even if I tighten up the bushings they will still feel squirrely just dropping in. Big bowls I prefer Indys because they feel stable when going fast.

When I'm skating loose or bombing sketchy hills, I find my aces weren't as stable as my indys or thunders at speed. But then again I'm not a fan of super super loose trucks and the difference is fairly marginal. I wouldn't consider it a reason to not get aces.

my friend spent 15 minutes telling me how new trucks are great, how i need to buy a new set etc then he got up to skate done a back 50 and his kingpin snapped.

so, theeve; csx vs tiax? had some thunder ti's a few years back and i royally fucked em, standard 149s still going strong so im leaning towards csx but does it really make a difference?

If you are just checking out trucks and don't care about weight, you get the CSX (Cheaper than a set of Krux)


CSK: Standard metals nothing hollow/solid kingpin - $
TIAX: Titanium axle nothing hollow/solid kingpin - $$
TiKing: Titanium axle, hollow kingpin (man I miss those ti pins, so light) - $$$
Tih: solid titanium hanger, solid kingpin - $$$$$$$$$$$
