Default Champions and Monza wheels.

Champions Roller world has their first coating on the freshly sanded floor. Awesome grip and very smooth now. The wood is much brighter now too.
So I pulled out my Monza wheels and installed on my skates. Gripping good right away but not perfectly. I had skated these probably 3 hours or so and they had lots of tread. I decided to scuff them a bit to get a little more grip out of them. So I scuffed and scuffed. Then did a few fast laps. They were working pretty good then. Scuffed a little more and again skated some fast laps. Scuffed a bit more then skated some more fast laps and began to notice quick breakaway of traction near the end of stroke. It began to show up more and more of a quick release from the floor at push end. I was getting near done for the day so I decided to put my White Shamans back on. I flipped the lever and grabbed the wheel, it was slick! No tread left! In one session these wheels went from about 90% tread to slick! 6 of 8 wheels with no tread!
Ive been loudly t stopping on my Shamans for about 8 months now, still have tread.
This reminds me of the "TIRE", formula. I like my wheels at about 40% tread, predictable with tons of grip. The Monzas grip but release early with having no tread left.

I did shoot some more trucks video today. Quite a contrast in action when comparing the left front truck to the right rear truck. Will upload when I get home this evening.
