I was thinking of two pairs, small but powerful, set up to attract each other, because magnetism falls off very quickly over distance. The overall feel would be a kind of a "detent" on-center, which then became easier to steer off center. The feel of the three-magnet-opposing setup would be less force on center, then it would increase some, then the magnet would help with the turn.

I think I would use oil-impregnated bronze bushings instead of bearings in the truck pivots. First of all, the bushings can probably be ordered in the exact size and shape needed. I would order the bushings to be a slight interference fit in the truck, heat the trucks up a little in the oven and freeze the bushings, drop them in, and have an interference fit when the temperature normalized. My next choice would be something like Delrin. Second, there isn't a lot of motion there, but a lot of load, so one could see some brinelling due to the bearing elements constantly beating on the same spot. Interference-fit oil-impregnated bronze solves all the issues.

Default How about soloflex styled resistance bands??

If we are outside box thinking, ditch the butterfly cushions, and locate resistance bands on each side of the truck and the base of the plate, one on each side of trucks...

Big question is what to use for restiance band.

Hey guy this is my first post and have been keeping up with all the Arius post since I had some skates built before I looked into what people are saying about them. My skates arrived today and kinda excited to try them out and put my 2 cents in on how they ride. And also how do you post pics I don't see that I'm able to.
