    The wheelbase isn't that long. They turn great.

    Just tighten up the rear truck and that board will be good to 40 or 50mph.

    Generous cutots...offered with 76mm wheels (gumballs)
    32" wheelbase will be mucho stable and enough plys that I ecpect a functional kicktail.

    Bug Zigs, EW 76mm Superballs would be on my short list.And 77mm Strikers might offer less rolling resistance when not in them thar hills.

    I've had my eye on this deck for a lwhile...please post a review.

    thanks enemy i am just gettin my feet wet on good long speed runs and usually i run tight tight trucks front and rear on moderate down hills but i will try losin up the front alil will that help with control and/or help in slides to scrub off speed? and Brute i will let you know on my thoughts of the new plank and is there any reason to go any bigger on the wheels or is that skaters just over compensating for something else? And to Cranks around these woods its usually Brother when somebody says Brah there usually in the womens underwear section at walmart .) lol Thanks again hollar at yall later. Keep Pushin.

    75mm-77mm is a nice size for wheels, Provides a smoother/plush ride with good roll speed and is large enough to roll over small mammals.
    Rounded edges will typicslly be easier to break free (slide/drift) while a wheel with a square edged profile will tend to have more grip and take a bit more effort to break free.

    personally I don't like the Dropkick, its heavy as hell and the EFP is really small IMO. My friend shreds it though.

    Yeah thanks for the heads up, I'm just posting really for new viewers' help on this issue. Looking for some people w/ similiar thoughts. Nice of u to take the time to point this out tho. Silverfish has been a place of friendly, helpful people, but sometimes u get a person who'd rather be "smart". I'm new here so I'll get familiar soon enough but as for u, well I hope u feel "smart".

    Why point out mistakes anyway. I just chill, write stuff I'm interested in and see if anyone has similiar interests. Old post or new. I don't feel stupid I'm a grown man, son. I just wanted to point out that if u wanna tell someone of a mistake at least give some advice as well. Grow up. This site has been fun and insightful for this older kook newbie, feelin stupid- never happen here I'm havin way too much fun. Admitting that to you groms may not be cool for to do amongst your 'angry-shred-n-destroy' insecure peers, But I AM STOKED and LOVIN LIFE! God Bless.
