Yeah that sounds like the same as what I was thinking. You just don't get enough speed starting at the top. I was also thinking we could change it around for the second run. I'll see you on Sunday and we can talk about all the details.
I saw an old thread and you were asking about trucks, did you find the answer you were looking for. just interested that is all. also do you do gs slalom and do you have a recomended setup for that. The reason for asking is that i am a bigger rider (older as well) and doing a bit of research.
I notice you are shopping around for some foamcore action, can't wait for chc 2011. Might have to start practicing now to keep up with you and gain some ground on judge haha. If ado has some good prices on pavels I probably won't be able to say no to a gunner model, just gotta offload some excess skate gear to justify the purchase. Catch up soon mate
Thanks mate. I try to be a nice guy. Your an awesome guy to. Its guys like you that help keep me skating on into my future. Skating is for everyone...
I know a bit more about what goes on around Australia within the skating scene than Boardshop would know. I know a lot of people in the Industry and everyone talks and I get to hear a lot of it. These people are my friends. I let things slide, but when someone is using everyone and not giving back then I will make a stand. Thanks for your support mate. Hope to skate with you soon again... Peace bro and skate safe
the rear truck i ran all year was a FITZ proto slalom cnc machined by him (not a randal modified) ,it was just on a randal 35 base with 20 degree deweged ! i changed the rear angle from tight to GS by flipping the rear hanger giving 7 mm lower and 3 degree less cast camber ! Same bushings all year just tighten for GS . red khiro barrel (bottom ) Blue barrel khiro TOP
truck all year was a Tracker modified by me with white khiro conicle resesed for spherical(bottom) and orange khiro conical resesed (top)
hey mate NO no crashes for me ! only one was townville all year BUT that was a doosey !!as seen on townville vid ! LOL
I have a maximus too Not set up yet ! BUT ill putting the bigger airflow 12?? with the spacers INSIDE and a Bennet up front ! im like 60 kg though !!
You would be better with a Wider tracker Xts or a 125 randal hanger with 50 /60 base , Still try the airflow back !! JUst play with bushings !!
Mate it is a hard call trying to set up a board !! You would need heaps different to me even wheels would be different with a bigger downforce on them ! I have so much traction problems being
so light !!
