Here's one I did a year or so ago using Big Boys and Super Jet trucks. Reversed the kingpin while I was in there.



OK, I'm convinced.
Can I send you a purchase order?

Default mmm cake!

Huge thanks to Doc Sk8 and dvw for the education and solution.

Solution to snapping laser trucks.
dvw Laser retro set-up - using Laser 88 cushions.
The weight is noticeable but has no effect. This ROX!





Spare set-up:
Redline 395 with added heal, magnum DA45, Atom Trackers with super reds







This double action is way more responsive than I expected.
I like it.
Going from a 6.5 to a 6.25 wb - virtually undetectable - accept I notice the ability to turn harder/sharper.
