Indy plates and trucks

It seems as if they have the smaller system, where narrow pivots like ACS etc would fit (probably like Suregrip, Variflex, etc), but not current skateboard hangers.

It would be great to have something like these Indy plates or the Suregrip plates, just with larger pivot holes so that any (typical) current skateboard hanger can be used. And they should be lighter ... :)

Very interesting; I would have thought that Indy plates are just as sturdy as Indy trucks (are now). Thanks for the info!
