Do bushings get "worn in"?
During my first two sessions, I've found out I could benefit from softer bushings than those I have now. They're just the stock bushings from Tracker, and actually I just wanted to know if they wouldn't be fine before wasting ten bucks on new bushings.
Now it seems that they're that tiny bit too hard to get around the corners without lifting up my feet, which quite disrupts the carving experience and the reason why we use trucks in the first place.
I remember riding medium bushings when I skateboarded six years ago, and I wonder whether there'd be a difference for quadskating, or whether bushings could get a little softer from using them.

Any ideas?
