    It's really all just personal preference I guess. I really like Indy Reds.....

    Depends on how much you weigh, your wheelbase, and how fast you want to go while you are carving.

    More weight = harder bushings

    More wheelbase = softer bushings

    More speed = harder bushings


    Take a few hours on your favorite hill, get the khiro bushing pack #1, and have a field day with it.



    The best way to find what you want is to go out there and try different setups.



    For more rebound I would suggest a setup similar to this for decent size hills...(I have it on my 46" w/ Crails, and I weigh 170 lbs)...

    Front - Red Khiro barrel top (w/ flat washer), blue tracker stimulator bottom (w/ no washer)

    Back - Tracker blue stimulator top (w/ flat washer), Tracker blue stimulator bottom (w/ no washer)

    I get tons of rebound with this, its great for decent hills, and I can still turn it sharp at slow speeds when Im weaving through people on my way to class

    If you're going with the holeys then the stock hourglass bushing supplied on the truck is pretty awesome.

    i would go with a pair of jimz bushing, it's 20$ on the landyacht site, you will have 4 barrels bushing the closest feeling to a stimulator bushing there's available on the market now

    I think you should go for two khiro white barrels in front and two khiro blue barrels in back.

    You got that answered several times yesterday...

    If you bought Paris recently, chances is that they came with bushings make from the same formula as Venoms already, and you can experiment with the stock tops and the 85a's you ordered. At the end of the day, bushing setup is highly personal and the only way is to experiment and figure out what you want yourself.

    i think bennetts mayu be a bit better. Maybe.

    Get some reflexes, in the 74a-83a duro, and have at it.

    I would suggest getting some carvy trucks too though, like originals, holey, and even bennetts.
