    Default Indy 149's vs. Tracker 149's?

    Anybody know the differences.... in weight? performance?

    thoughts?

    I have ridden some 184 Darts and they are real turny but I need a smaller set of trucks for a street/pool board. I'm thinkin Indys but I dunno!

    The way James of Pavedwave describes the Indy turn: "fast turn on initiation and they turn like crazy all the way through." Trackers have a more progressive feel where they turn more as you lean further and longer. Their geometries are different which creates the changes in performance.

    People definitely have their preferences and reservations (the Indy vs Tracker argument is imfamous in the skater world), but it's impossible to say which is better than the other. That's like saying a slalom board is better than a downhill bombing board!

    As far as I'm aware, they weigh about the same.

    If you're looking to do street and pool stuff, then I'd recommend Indy's, but I have a flatland pumping-oriented bias. Are looking to get a new school or old school shape (70's? 80s?)?

    I actually think I am going to get the Indys, only because they are avaliable to me locally. I'd say the shape of the board is more old school. Been checking out the new SMA boards by skip.

    Im pretty partial to darts. It just seems that I cant get indies to turn as deep. Trackers do turn slower, but man do they turn nice.

    I like Indys for pool and pipe, but dislike them for carving. If you ride them with harder bushings they are still turny. If you ride them with soft bushings and a longer kingpin they can carve deep. But what I really dislike is, that they turn verry suddenly with the tip of the toe. I can't recomend trackers, because I haven't ridden them. I tried Randals for Pool as well. They are nice as long as you ride without pushing vert but as soon as I push them in the transition to vert it feels like you loose some power. With an Indy rear I can push the board higher with less power. Indy dewedged rear, Randal front was a beautifull combination.
