are Thunder trucks good for nose and tailslides ?
« on: April 05, 2016, 01:16:25 PM »
I never tried to make a noselide or a tailslide with Thunder trucks, because I never owned a pair of them and I dont like to use other people skateboards, but the base of the truck seem to short ( small ) and it seem that when you make a nose or tailslide the wheels are the gonna slide on the curb insted the truck, which seem to be harder to make the slide.

Opinions please.

I used to only skate thunders and one of the 5 tricks I can do well is front noseslides. Idk if correlation is causation here but they seemed to help me

Nobody on the Thunder team does nose- or tailslides for this very reason. Jason Adams - only does slappies. Jamie Thomas - only does backside lipslides. Ishod Wair - only does backside smith grinds.

Jason Adams hasn't rode Thunders for a long time now. Ace...

cool. I did not know that. I wonder if he still uses risers. I noticed he had risers on his old setups and I wondered if that would help with slappies at all.

I think it just has to do with the whole wheelbite thing. With Thunders he was always using risers cause even their "hi's" are low. After looking on his instagram looks like he uses a 1/8" riser with probably some 55-56mm wheels on those Ace's.

My last and current pair are hollow lights. As long as the ledge isn't too crusty and I go fast enough, the wheels never stick.

Thunder Light baseplates will break on you pretty quickly, but you could definitely get some noseslides in.

After a year and a half i'm amazed with my pair of thunder Lights (I came from Indendent and it's very hard to find something at indy level)

It works for nose/tailslide

I know it maybe seems weird fro me to ask this, because Thunder has a super sick team and their reputation on the trucks itself is very good, but you cannot deny the fact that their base is too small, which avoid me like many other persons I know to buy them.

Very obviously there's a simple soloution here. Buy a brand new pair of Thunders. Get out your trusty Sawzall, cut a notch out of the baseplate, retrofit with a Tensor slider plate, ride 40mm wheels and noseslide and tailslide to your heart's content. Duh.

I don't think any trucks are good for nose slides and tail slides. I've tried so many brands and no matter what, every time I try to do a nose slide I stick. The search continues I guess.

On a side note, does anyone know if Bones wheels are good for rolling? I have Spitfires and they roll OK, but are bones better? Sometimes its hard for me to get up ramps at the park with my spitfires, so thats why I'm asking.

The lights are pretty shit man, wheelbite and thin flimsy baseplates

Don't come at me with this bullshit I know what's up- DONT BUY HOLLOW/LIGHT TRUCKS, guaranteed to snag more on nose and tailslides too. Nothing behind it

but my question is, why they make the base plates so short, its easier and you have a more smooth slide when the base are a lil bit longer like in almost all other brands.

this is a tailslide.  you think Ishod was concerned about his baseplate here?
