Arrived home to find a box of shitty trucks and wheels that I accidentally bought (was browsing ebay auctions while I smoked a cig at work and put my phone in my pocket unlocked and when I pulled it out like 20 minutes later I'd somehow managed to hit the buy button) for $40. They're all 5" hanger trucks, but only 2 of them are truly shitty.

- Black Thunder Sonora's 7.75" axle (this is the main reason I wasn't that pissed when I realized what I'd done)

- Black Hanger/Orange Baseplate Royals (dunno shit about royal models) 7.75" axle

- and the shitty truck piŤce de rťsistance: Blue Hanger Phantom Unit 7.5" axle with the aforementioned shitty built-in riser and stupid skull face logo on the baseplate

To top off this trip down late 90's/turn-of-the-millenium nostalgia lane, theres also 2 sets of Bones fireballs that look to be about 49mm and a set of actually useable wheels that I can't remember right now but arent anything special. There was a pleasant surprise though in that the thunders and royals look to have aftermarket bones bushings although they're soft/medium so I'll probably just use them to do some frankenstein combos if I get bored.

If anyone actually wants the royals or phantoms and/or a set of the fireballs let me know and you can have them.

Years ago I was in Brazil and I had a set up with some ventures on it and I broke the hangers. Well I went to a skate shop somewhere around the area, I found a Brazilian? brand of trucks called Diarrhea they had a guy in a sombrero taking a shit. I wish I had kept them as they were decent but the axles bent shortly before I gave them away. Anyone ever heard of those trucks? They were a Thunder knockoffs.

Is there any reason why the inverted kingpin with the low profile allen wrench thing on top doesn't catch on? Never had trucks with it, just wondering why it only exists on shitty trucks. Seems like it was a decent idea...
the threaded part of the kingpin isn't as strong so they snap more easily. there's also slop.

First run of royal was trash. Guess much hasnt changed though... i bought those army green hanger ones with the orange rock hard plastic bushongs soon as Royal dropped. Still got em. Also had/have some Furyís. They were akward to skate. After a few years hiatus and getting ďoutta te loopĒ i returned and fucked around and got some theeves lol. I just stick to indy thumder and venture now

Really?! Diarrhea trucks you donít say? Those were some funny trucks they were good but bent over repeatedly doing gaps. I ended up trading a setup for some weed or a deck slightly better than the one I had.

yeah the ones I had were black base plates and brown hangers, I had gotten them from a shop in Brazil.

I went to Mexico and other parts of central and south america one thing I didn't take to note I was absent minded and lost my side bag with all my tapes for listening to black metal while chilling at a spot. Brazil in the favelas if you aren't with a guide you will get your shit jacked if you aren't aware.

I'm pretty fluent with spanish language just not Portuguese, ahhh oh well I ended up getting super sick and cming back to Tennessee and had a gnarly bot fly extraction.

I always check before buying one. Most skateboard manufacturers use aluminum alloy for their trucks because of the materialís elasticity and toughness. Magnesium alloy trucks are also of good quality.
