Reminds me of the Destructo Railkiller. Destructos also had their hole pattern centered like Thunder.



Do you think they still have the same hole pattern or they have it recessed like Indy and venture
yes

Thunder 148s or 147s for a 8.125" deck? (fairly tall guy skating street)

148 gets my vote (I'm running some on an 8.125" and love it).

If your tall as you say I'd also recommend 148 since they're actually kinda tall trucks but if you are like me and don't bend your knees much to pop and need the tail to hit the ground fast go 147
yes

Since you are tall 148s may be the way to go. One other thing to consider is if you go up or down on width. If you occasionally go down to 8s may want 147s but if you go up to 8.25 you will be in great shape with 148s.

I got some of those 148s yesterday, put them straight on, didn't adjust shit and they were perfect. Curious to see how they go after some break in time but so far I've never had a truck work so well straight out the gate.

i'm 6'2 and skate mainly street. i'm rolling on some indy 149's on a 8.25. i was using venture 5.25 but after switching i do notice i feel more stable before attempting tricks

Hey, guys,

Thanks for all the support and feedback for the new 148s!

I just wanted to let you all know what we will have rolling out next month.

We will have all models of the 148 (Titanium, Light, and Hollow-Light) on both the new cast baseplates, as well as the forged baseplates.

As well as polished silver versions of both, with the official name TBD.

Hit me up if you have any questions, PM, or in the comments.

Cheers!

Are the "new cast baseplates" the extended baseplates referred to in the Truck Setup Thread?  Appreciate you chiming in here and there, Reed. 

Same as it ever was...





do the baseplates that come with this truck have the 'team' on them or the three lines? all the ones ive seen have team on them but obviously these ones have the three lines. or did you put the new hangers on a different set of baseplates? also the new ones are labeled as being 1mm taller so its nigh impossible to the naked eye. also are these cast or forged? some websites are stating theyre forged

Mine have the three lines and thunder / lighting bolt and thunder

They are Cast, just a nice coating than the other thunder cast plates.

Suit Up!

This may have been covered and seem like a weird question, but are the regular (not hollow lights) 148's heavier or lighter than hollow light 149's?

Just weighed them both...

Hollow Light 149 = .72lbs

Polished 148 = .78lbs

This reminds me of road cyclist's nerd-ery, but props to Reed for indulging that.  DLX customer service...
