I believe a 5 x 80 or even an old 5 x 72 inline skate would be better than any quad skate set up even if you can manage to put 100 or 110 mm wheels on there.
If you want to skate inlines outdoors, then of course they are going to handle any and every kind of surface irregularities better than this new quad skate build will.

However, if you still prefer to skate quads outdoors, and you want the best possible setup for handling the worst surface conditions, then this kind of a quad skate build optimization is, IMO, about as good as you are going to get.
