If I compare for example Indys, ACE and Thunders I could recordnize big difference in fact of grinding (distance, speed and/ or hang-ups).Thanks :). Venture 5.25 Hi dlxsf (didn't get use to)***I rode Tracker Dart 161 back in the days for crusing and bombing down some "smaller hills" with some 9 - 10" old school decks. So did I. I put Bones mediums in my Darts after only one run. I can't ride them loose, though, which I was really bummed about. The Venture 5.8s are great all-around trucks for those who like their trucks loose and their wheels big. But they did turn pretty nicely at lower speeds. The quality is old-school: the axles are off-center, the casting is sloppy, the bushings look and feel like those bushings from early-80's roller skates, and the kingpin is a hex-head instead of button-head kingpin. I actually like the Thunder 149 Standards. I'm currently riding a set of ML trucks after reading Jonny's review and I love them. The grind requires a little effort, but they are still just shy of being sticky on the grind. Hey bro, already skated indy 169 stage 11? I still can't say anything bad about the thunders, but they just dont excel the same way. If you like how the 149 Thunders turn and feel, then you'll be okay with the 151 Thunders because they turn and feel the same. The boys' boards have gullwing 850's, one with bombers, the other with t bone 2's. The Dart 149s should do really, really well in bowls. Do they live up to the hype? Royal's pros ride Indys? The Darts have a predictable, smooth, fast grind. The Royal Fours make me a better skater because they reward even the clumsiest of efforts with a roll-away or an easy bail. Have you posted any pics of them, I can't remember if you have or not? I was wondering what makes the independent 149 standard more suited for transition? It depends. They just feel perfectly right. What brand do you skate then? I haven't found a better truck for the 7.9-8.1" deck size than the Theeve TiAX 5.5s. They're a great all-around truck if you like your trucks medium tight. I have seen Ace 44s with hanger widths in the range of 145 - 151 millimeters. Why do they have a truck sponsor, then? Stable when you're pushing, stable on manuals, stable on kick turns on the ramp. I was doing 50-50s for as long as I wanted, it was so smooth. I can now recommend the Tensor Ten Magnesiums 5.75 Low to anybody who wants a great all-around truck. There's something about the 5.5 size (8.5" axle) that makes everything just right. They turn better than any standard-kingpin truck out there and even better than some of the longboard-kingpin trucks out there. Speaking of wheelbite - you mentioned that it is non existent on the Ventures, I'd love to hear your thoughts regarding the wheelbite from ML trucks.Thanks again for a great blog and for all the work you put in to testing (although it does sound like fun too). ), and the Indy FHs reward you with higher performance. Ultimately, the Thunder 149 Lights are best if you like how Thunders feel but want something a little more biased toward technical flatland and technical street. Alternatively, you can navigate to the survey by copying and pasting the following URL to your browser's address bar: So, which truck did I like best? The Indy Stage 11 are similar to the Ace 66. For the price you pay, you get a lighter truck with forged baseplate and hollow kingpins, but you give up the stability of the standard Thunders. The stock bushings are rocks. Has anyone else noticed the extreme difference between stage 11 Indy 149s and 159s? Guess you get used to everything. March 2015 edited March 2015 in Powell-Peralta ® I have a Cab Dragon and Bats and it LOOKS great with Indy 149s and Rat Bones, but it RIDES so much better with 159s. You could run the trucks very loose or very tight and still get smooth feel and smooth turning from them. Now I've just been riding 149 Thunder lights which for a long time felt too light, couldnt get the right feel at first. Problem is that I'm from Brazil and I can't find any aces in Brazil and is a long shot. ?? The forged baseplates and stiffer kingpin remove all slop from the trucks. (This was also remarkably noticeable in the Indy 149 Forged Hollow.) Are these trucks worth the money? The trucks were nicely polished but they had casting marks all over the place, off-nominal mounting holes in the baseplates, and a lot of unnecessary aluminum on the mold design. Gullwing Shadow DLX 8.5 - Plain and simple, the Gullwing Shadows felt like heavy Independents without the high quality standards. If you skate Thunder 149 standards normally, you would mount the Thunder 149 Lights for games of skate. It was very noticeable for me! Modern quality control standards prevent these kinds of aberrations with most truck brands out there. Because of the stable turning, one truck grinds like 5-0 or krooked are easier with the Darts. Maybe it's kind of "getting lean with the whole body" while going into turns? if you're planning on increasing your board size in the future then get indy 149s. I... Paris Truck Company has released their TKP truck, called the Street Truck . They look like a lower, wider version of their Racetrack RT-X slalom truck which I’ve tried and are pretty nice. Also after the 1st session the pivot get "locker" and the truck rattle in it. Nsskater93. For tight trucks, the Tensor Ten 5.75s are fantastic and extremely light. I got many new bruises and road rashes from these trucks, though. First your blog is really good ! Other than being lighter, a little lower, requiring less ollie effort, and having a need to be run medium-loose to avoid wheelbite, the 5.8 Lights feel pretty much like the standard Venture 5.8s. The tight turning of the Tensors allowed for ultra-quick pumps in the pockets and on pump humps, too. but because of your damn blog i've had to order a set of royals.. the 5.5. i normally skate an 8.25" board.. hence some of my love of ACEs.. (44 are close to 8.25) and theeve.
