Hey folks, touching back here to say I'm really digging the Maglight Los I got prior to my last post here, I went ahead and got the normal height ones. One thing to note is that I'm not used to riding low trucks, so I thought that the fact that my Los were turning so poorly and wheelbiting so easily were normal characteristics of low trucks. Additionally, I was already riding some aftermarket Tensor bushings in some Ventures before I got my Maglight Los, so when I got the Los I immediately switched those bushings out for the ones I was already using without really thinking about it. I didn't think to compare the Lo and normal bushings side by side until I got the normal height ones and was going to put the bushings from the Los into the normal height ones, and when I did I noticed that the bottom bushings that came from the Los when I first got them are about a quarter inch taller than the normal height ones. So anyways, if you want your Tensor Los to be even lower and don't mind them turning shittier and wheelbiting all the time because the geometry is wrong than you can swap them out for normal sized Tensor bushings.

anyone notice the new maglights are 20g heavier per truck? the past 2 sets i had to send back because they arent coming with the magnesium baseplate on them. anyone have some mag light trucks that are done and want to sell? looking for the atg baseplate that says magnesium under Tensor on the bottom of the baseplate!

Yes , unfortunately, it’s been discussed ad nauseam in the “truck set ups, less popular edition thread”. They only come with alloy baseplates now.  :-\

That's might be (hopefully) temporary?

If you ask me, it sounds as if Tensor had burned through mag plate stock but still had mag hangers and were just ditching extra aluminum plate stock to make way for the ATG re-design that's in the works (i.e. new molds)..but for all we know that could mean the mag plates go away forever (or not).
