Venture heads :

Is there any noticeable difference in geo between 5.6 and 5.8?

Aside from weight and wheel base is there a general preference of v-lights or regular cast?

I have some 149 Indyís and I sized down to 8.25 decks and 149s feel great on it but Iím wanting set up a tech board  so was thinking 5.6 on 8.25. Plus I wanna try venture but donít know what would be the best choice to get my feet wet with. Out of v light reg and 5.6 or 5.8

Unless you are all about weight savings I would start with the standard cast. I was running polished 5.6 cast for a while and they did everything I needed and didn't feel that much heavier coming from hollow light thunders.

that top bushing looks like shit in the 2nd pic.


almost grabbed some of those the other day online, glad i didn't.

yeah I swapped the top for a cracking bones med.

The washer on top cuts into the yoke as well. I recommend  top washer swap

Just wondering if kader the new lion from mt zion who is the hardest in this forest?

Thanks for the feedback gents, I might even Franken a pair of 5.6 raws and 5.6 v-lights with the hollow kingpin to shave weight, but keep the cast baseplate for the pop and wheelbase sake. Iím hyped Iím getting them today at 6pm central. AWAKE.

Lol wut? you're buying v-lights becuase of weight/kingpin, but keep cast plates? so you want to hammer both kingpins out and put the hollow one in the cast plates?
[close]

I think he's talking about doing this because the V-Lights also have a hollow axel? I was wondering too before realizing it has a hollow kingpin and axel. I did a similar thing with my Thunders, used an old cast baseplate with titanium axel 149's, before they started making the Team Titanium or whatever that comes stock with cast baseplate.

Hey Sadnocomply, if you buy both trucks to frankenstein, buy Thunder hollow replacement kingpins to put in the cast baseplate rather than hammering out the ones from the forged baseplate. Hammering out hollow kingpins is very difficult and can "mushroom" the head of it, making it harder to remove all the way and also rendering it useless for re-use. Probably weakens it too. Installing a brand new hollow kingpin is a better bet!

two machine shops around here helped me with kingpin replacement. They threw it up on the press and even glued the old gk down for me.

I was a machinist before drugs happened and my 3rd? major head injury. So maybe they just pity me but they do it for free.

My auntie Sally was a machinist too. Rip Sally i luv you i miss you.

I've running a set of 5.6 V-hollows (forged plate, hollow pin and axles) and have some 5.6 V-lites (forged plates hollow pins) on my kids boards, before setting them all up, holding them in hand the weight savings is negligible.

I like light setups so the 5.6 V-Hollows was the obvious choice for me; would have gone ti if they were available...but that's me, I don't think the weight savings for ti is THAT great against a hollow (especially considering the price), unless we're talking Indys or anything at 8.5/149 or above....noticeable in hand but once they're setup...meh

Is the extended wheel base the forge base plates give you any noticeable issues? Cause Iím kinda leaning towards 5.6 v-lights(even though I do kinda like 8.5 trucks on 8.25 deck) but the extra length is whatís kinda getting me shook.

If you are coming from Indy you'll feel the change for sure - I'm riding them on a short (14") WB so I don't notice the extra length and they're already compensating for what I normally feel comfy on. I did NOT like them on a long WB and wouldn't use them on anything longer than 14.25"....even then I'd probably keep to 14" / 14.1" WB on them. A few others have noted how nice the feel on short WB decks.

What's funny is all the talk about this truck, that truck and WB when it seems the average for everyone is hovering around 17.5" axle to axle WB.

If you wanna press out a hollow kingpin you could put an acorn/cap nut on it.
Any hardware store should stock it, 3/8"-24

Machine shop.. spindle oil is made for high speed bearings..
You want thinner for cold weather, ISO 2 or ISO 5.
ISO 10 is thickest and I'm guessing it's around the viscosity of most bearing lubes.


edit: lol. brain fart..
As an Indy dude the Venture casts look interesting to me.
Height and wb offset is similar to Indy forged?

completely agree. shit gets weird with ventures and a 14.38 wb.

logged all my axle to axle wb findings and found 17.5-17.63 was the best all round a2a wb for me at least. once i hit 17.75+, things felt boaty. 17.38 felt short for my long ass legs but would be the lowest id work with. keeping my cast ventures around for that blue moon when i pick up a 14.125 wb to give me a 17.5 a2a off the rip.

ventures really give me the confidence to try deck wheelbases that scare me

what was wrong with the 14.38wb and cast ventures? Isnít that withn your 17.63Ē a2a range? Messed up manual point? Boaty? Just curious, not extra stability? Like a longer wb on indys feels how different than a short wb on venture even though they even out. Fingers of flat.. kick steepness.. that variable removes if possible even tho itís not

Like a longer wb on indys feels how different than a short wb on venture even though they even out. Fingers of flat.. kick steepness.. that variable removes if possible even tho itís not

if i remember correctly, the measurement i was getting was 17.75 from axle to axle, not 17.63.
i marked venture 6.1s as adding 3.375 to the wb. i found that with the weight and geometry of the truck, i lost the snappy pop feel past a 14.25 deck wb. i also lost my manual point and any trick i popped had to really be snapped down to get average results. rotational tricks moved noticeably slower, like turning a boat. venture stability has been a non factor to me ever since i put a deckside barrel bushing in a thunder.

i know the measurement could be off by human error but it really felt like the trucks were just a little further back. that on top of the weight difference between 6.1s and what im used to didnt work on a 14.38. luckily for me i didnt have to bear with something i know i didnt like. threw the ventures on a 14 wb, something i would honestly never step on outside of experimentation, and i honestly could have skated the deck to the ground if i was desperate. then tried them on a beat up 14.25, razortailed to shit, and could still get shit off like it had life in it. put my thunder forged on the 14.38 and it was back to its the responsive self. ventures have shined for me on the >14.25 deck wheelbases. not saying bigger wheelbases and ventures cant work for anyone else of course, its just not agile enough for my liking.

"Like a longer wb on indys feels how different than a short wb on venture even though they even out."

i think i know exactly what your saying but ill put my point out there to clarify. there are a ton of ways to get a 17.5 axle to axle wb on a deck. if the truck is literally not the same truck, there will be no way to completely get one truck to behave like another. every truck will have different characteristics and to try and compare them exactly to another will drive you crazy. with the amount of outside factors, i can firmly say its impossible without a fuckton of constants and computer measurements. youd be better off leaving that to someone with the time and resources to do it, i.e. the professor. it did so much to help my madness by finding my truck of choice and tweaking the small issues when possible. take the journey to find that truck if you havent already. cost me $260 short term, but at least i kicked the urge to try every new truck and just progress on one.

damn noticing so many more people riding ventures!

venture and ace is the way. But most people will not like the change and they will think can i trade these for thunders if i hit up dlx? Hmmm.

I been hyped on my homies thunder teams today. I cleaned them up nice and I was doing long g turns before the rain started. They're so low and i got them on a flat 8.5. I dont know what bearings he got. They're odd. They got like a little step on the side of the inner race. And the outside looks blackened. Same black cages as reds. I was thinking maybe neal? There nice and fast.

Tons of fun easy manny set up.

Wheel bite is crazy though. Dude has black bones meds no washers. I dont like bones bottoms anymore.

I turned 21 on thunder teams for 7.5-7.75 i dont remember getting that much wheel bite at all. thats the truck i rode most of my life. I lost the green bushings i shaved down on like the 3rd set.

Im more stoked on ace and venture today though. And indy 139s

I am so stoned out f my mind rn i dont remember writing this. My whole body is goose bumps listening to the Melvins. Petting my cats

Just bought some Venture low 5.25s. Rode venture during bpsw era and during the stage 9 Indys because I hated those. As previously stated, my best skating (trick wise) was on ventures, yet I always liked the feel of Indys. Decided as my aging decline continues, I want to have that great venture stability under my bad ankles. And enjoy flip tricks as well. Pretty excited , once my ankle heals.

I hope venture is on the come up for real. They been around longer than Iíve been born I think lol but I never see them at a sesh or at the park just indy/ace or thunder bros. Company seems ill to me, and the hangers are HARD  ;D

I got the 6.1 version of these, First pair of Ventures ever, loving them so far

repost from the truck thread but the last part fits here

my theory with venture's resurgence is the stark contrast to indy. independent is the most popular truck company with diehard fans/customers. give those customers reasons to try other shit (moving to china, pros leaving, nhs spongebob collabs) and brand loyalty loosens up a bit. give those same customers trucks that are bizarro indys performance wise, pick up bobby fucking worrest, and tell those people that they are "awake" from their purchase? dlx did a marketing masterclass with perfect timing

unsurprisingly, its another dlx company that i fuck with. its a shame i like venture as a company more than how the trucks feel, but i will always back truck cos that go against the "fuck the rest" circlejerk.

Ok

Cast or hollow? Kinda wish they made some hollow/cast plate combo. 5.25 loís the best tho.

Cast. I'm psyched. Rehabbing my foot so hopefully a few weeks. Also, the "quick pop response" of a low truck, is something I've missed.

Agreed, that's how they got me to switch to them

Regular cast trucks are the best, I need to quit tempting myself on bullshit. Set it and forget it. Easier said than done, but.....putting trucks on and not fucking with them is also pretty lazy so imma try and use my laziness to my advantage.

The fact that they don't ship with a flat washer and instead use a big curved one that digs into the hanger just shows how dogshit the engineering is. I like them in a straight line, but I shouldn't have to turn my setup into a science experiment to get it to turn how I want. Don't have to do it with any other brand, not even bushings.
