Default SG SuperNova plate with titanium upgraded axles & KPs

By doing a reversed kingpin upgrade with Titanium studs and replacing the 7mm steel axles with titanium ones, a Nova plate becomes a SuperNova.
Adding 100% nylon axle nuts and action nuts gives a sub 300 gram [without toestops] plate for your ~size. With a light boot and Bont, microbearing wheels, and a not too heavy toestop, a sub-1000 gram build is doable.

With Panther nylon trucks replacing the already sharp turns capable SG factory original aluminum ones, even sharper turns become easy, and stability exceeds DA45 level.
In this PIC the action is set SNUG , yet all all 4 wheels are fully down and gripping:

Rollin' on AIR
