Oh and ursle what you posted up is U.S national records.

I'm pretty sure all the current speed records have been replaced with inline records all but 1 .Short sprint like 100 m or so still held by an Italian guy from the 80s.
Right? A slow guy on the fastest gear ever is still going to be slow. He my be faster than he was on crap gear, but it wont be by much.

While I love the plate.. the way it's made is crap. The Arius in stock form needs work, I added .005 shims(2) between the plate and the truck. One above one below, then I had the plastic axis pin sleeves upgraded to press fit brass versions that are bonded to the truck, and the axis pins a very close tolerance to the bore in the sleeves.

Then I trimmed the cushions down and removed the stabilization pins to make edging behave correctly.

Good design with a hinge, poor implementation.
