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
