Default New skate/truck/plate project

NTS, DA45 from SA trucks(SG). 3/4" cushions on a bar stock plate. 195mm mount. If my theory is correct, if using cushions above and below the truck, the setup should perform identically to my moded SG DA45 I use now but with hope fully less weight. My kingpins are overlength anyway so no change there, truck weight will go down considerably. Trucks will get lightened some from milling the pockets and clearancing on the bottom of the trucks. My last plates were lighter than SG White magnums of the same size, without radiusing and polishing corners down. The goal is light weight and possibly titanium flips too. Going to take some time but will post step by step.
