It makes it easier to turn on the side itís on compared to the other. But Iím going to give it a few more sessions because itís probably just in my head. And I just bought these pivot cups yesterday :'(

You could try to contact deluxe about it. They seem to be very good at replacing defects and stuff. I honestly don't think your pivot cavity is supposed to oval out like that, pretty sure that could be warrantied.

Oh word? I may try that. The worst they can say is no. Hereís another photo

Iím just bummed that I bought fancy riptide pivot cups, didnít notice the oval, and managed to fuck one up already.

That is completely fucked. Makes the problems people were having with Ace AF1 pivot cups seem microscopic. Were you running them on pivot cup bushings that were completely obliterated before or how the fuck did that happen?  :o

They werenít obliterated, but two days ago I noticed that the pivot cup bushing was cracked near the top, and I replaced it with a fancy fresh new  one yesterday. So I donít think Iíve treated them too poorly.

That's one of the most beautiful trucks ever made.

6.1ís are sick.

I had a fun first session on them this morning.

When I first set them up I thought I might need harder bushings but these purples ones feel pretty good.

I hadnít really given Ventures an honest go until today and Iím glad I did.

Just set up some 5.6s and i kept the purps on.

I fell off rolling down the street almost got hit by a mail truck.

New bushings suck. I might just switch over to thunder again for a little fun now that ventures have moved production.

Thunders and ventures are now basically equal in coolness again  :-\

Ventures are still the best tho.

greens are the best color, because of the featherlight memories, purple looks the best, but i spent the longest on the maroons. so any of those are cool. basically just like ventures and how they look

Iím thinking about picking up some ventures off of a memorial day sale. Currently riding thunder team 149s and am looking for a truck comparable in height. Iím assuming regular cast is my best bet? Iím between 5.6 and 5.8s as i ride 8.38Ö

I have some 5.8 highs on an 8.5 and I can see a tiny bit of axle. Iíd probably go 5.6 in your case. I canít really speak to height/geometry beyond that though. And Iíll tell you now, either pop your old Thunder bushings in there or order something you like. Stock venture purples are their biggest con imo

I had been skating 5.8s, but put on 5.6 hangers since I am not skating 8.3 any longer. The 5.8s definitely turn more/better(?) than the 5.6. Leverage I assume.

I also am trying to ease into 5.2 lows on 8". Had a great session on them today. Flip trick timing is still off, but really enjoying them otherwise.

If you're concerned strictly with the height, I think the forged plates would get you the closest to the 52mm height of your current 149s. The cast plates are 53mm so still not a huge difference. 

If getting a more comparable wheelbase is also a concern, the cast plates would be the better overall choice for height and WB combined. The forged plates are drilled farther down the baseplate so they'll extend your WB even more than the cast will.

Thanks all for the advice! Iím think 5.6 casts with flat top washers and my old thunder bushings will probably give me the truck i want these days. Iíve been skating DLX 8.38s with a 1 stamp but would like to maybe size down to 8.25 soon. :-)

I think either will work fineÖ.the forged set ups have a few more options, are often on sale, a bit lighterÖ.you have the right idea though and I think youíll like how they skate.

5.8s on 8.38s are great, thatís my current set up. i will do 8.25 with 5.8s too. i used to magic carpet for the longest time, i was skating thunder 147s on 8.5 boards, much easier to wheelbite and it pitches you harder too. iíd get the wider trucks.

5.8 with 8.38s is the fucking truth

I can't explain it but my 5.6 ventures feel like 8" trucks to me. They're only 1mm narrower than my thunder 148s though, so it's not the actual measurements. (143 and 144mm)
Same feeling with the 8.25 ace Af1, but those actually are narrower for some reason. (like 141mm)

huh, makes me kinda want them. i wonít.
iím a moron that needs to (constantly) remind myself to just stick with 8Ē trucks.
iíll have fun, and really enjoy some setups with bigger trucks, but everything has to be juuuuuuuuuust so. or else it doesnít work. and that somehow also means that initially the bigger truck setup might be fantastic, and by the next day it is not at all rad. iím so wack.

now if they ever made 5.6 loís iíd buy.

i got the gibbs truck, looks so nice

First session in on my 5.6 standard. Iím starting with stock everything including washers. No gouge on the hanger from the stock washer so far. Plenty of turn even after the bushings have stiffened up a bit. Pop timing is perfect for me. Coming from Thunder lights ( forged plates) where I felt too low, (like I was driving my pop directly into the ground rather than rebounding off of the pavement) the Venture height is just that happy medium between a Thunder and Indy. Also I really like the ďharderĒ grind. Itís loud which is fun but it also reminds me of the feeling of grinding on the axle of other trucks.
These are just first impressions but Iím happy with them so far.

Isn't that weird.

It's a massive difference between the 5.6 and the 5.8

But the 5.6 down all feel the same.

It matters not but it is interesting.

If you can find the Ted Barrow ones, a q-tip and some acetone/deglazer will take the Pooh Bear graphic off, very fast and easy on a polished hanger, like 30 secĖ1 min max.

The Kader ones with the raw finish take more effort to remove the graphic, but it still worked.

Not sure if anyone was interested in my ovaled pivots, but Iím fairly confident that recently I was doing way too many slappy crooked grinds on a metal ledge, and it wasnít a fault with the baseplate. To test my idea, I tossed these old forged independent trucks on my bloard and spent a couple sessions blasting them into the ledge. Sure enough, they started ovaling on my heel side, too. The indyís are older, but they seemed to start ovaling out faster than the ventures (or maybe it just seemed that way because I was looking for it). As seen here:



So I donít think itís a reflection on venture, and I figure I should just be more gentle and ollie into grinds that pinch from now on, or just accept the consequences of slappy life and give up on trucks that donít wobble.

How many spacers do I need on the inside of the wheel on 5.6 to feel like a 5.8? I have 5.8 in my main but gonna set up a second skate shitty spots and rough ledges board but want it similar to my main

Crossposting from the questions that donít deserve their own thread thread (probably made more sense here):

Anyone use any other brands of replacement pivot cups in Venture baseplates?  Iím trying to figure out what would fit properly. 

I have Riptides in there now which have completely blown apart in like a month of skating.  Not trying to go down that road again.  I wish I kept the original Venture pivot cups from this set but they seem to have disappearedÖ I was looking at options and it seems like Indy and Ace sell replacement pivot cups but not many other brands.  Thanks!

Iíve used indy pivot cups in ventures and they fit reasonably well. They werenít perfectly flush, but they worked.
