I got my plates/trucks!
Cooooool, What did ya get. Ifn your gonna cut any bushings,then cut the one that doesn't sit on the base plate,but I wouldn't cut them too much though as it will mess with the amount of turn you can get.

cheers joe

: Gosh, I LOVE them! I will do the plastic set up cause the other one wont work I can tell. I will make it a slight V in the center instead of a circle. But I can put jump bars on it for now. I will wait til January to do the slider set up. I think its best to adjust to new trucks and the heavier weight first. The only thing I'm worried about is that this will be heavy. But I will build it for speed and I am working hard in the weight room now so I will be strong.
: The one issue I have is that the bottom bushing is conical. I might have to slice them since I will want my trucks loose and there is not much room left on the king pin. I'm not sure if I slice the top or bottom or since they are narrow where the jump bars are, guess they are OK naked without the washer? The jump bar fully covers them. I will build new skates this weekend, hope my knee is healed.
