I had to get used to the way my board popped with my ventures, and the first day or two was terrible. Once I got used to it I feel in love. However I'm having my semiannual truck crisis and I am thinking about pulling the trigger on some 33 Aces.

I had a really good session on them yesterday.  They are great in the mini bowl and super stable on manuals.  My pop is higher but harder to control if that makes sense.

They straight up turn amazingly well.  Very surfy in the bowl.  I'm going to stick with them for a while but I'm not getting rid of my thunders yet

j....soy.....

Tried running Krux downlow kingpins in my Thunders and ended up not digging it. If anyone wants to buy em off me send me a PM.

It's working good for me.  What happened?

I wasn't able to adjust them with the trucks on, due to the kingpin nut slipping. That was weird because I thought I read in a thread on here somewhere the Thunder baseplate would hold the nut but mine didn't. I also had a weird phantom creak sound/feeling when I turned deep with them which could've been bushings, washer, or pivot cup related, but it doesn't happen with the stock kingpins. I put my stock kingpins back in and tightened them where I like them then took a metal file to the nuts where they had been catching, and I'm satisfied with that for now.

Yah they spin for sure....and it's true once you start messing around shits a bit different.  I was just annoyed how quickly you start smashing your kingpin on thunders.

I've been thinking about ventures for almost a year now.. But I just finally got settled on indy-pop, I don't think I can handle that stress right now. Those axles look pretty far to the front :o

Skating Indys on a jk industries slick, board is heavy as a tank. Anyway, skated fine but afterwards my knees aching like a bitch (ps I'm 42). Was pondering putting thunders back on and seeing if a lighter board = less knee ache? Could just be flat out oldness. Anyone else experiment with weight of board vs. Old ass knees?

No idea about Krux but Indy bushings are an exact fit on Venture highs.
