    from what i remember....

    the whole "green is faster" silverfish, "cool-kid" inside joke started after the Evo changed from the red tree graphic to the green tree graphic. Some kid started a thread saying he heard that the green paint they used was lighter in weight... and wanted to know if the new board would then be faster than the red model

    the people of silverfish took care of the rest


    i think the Abec11 green thing is just coincidental... but i could be wrong

    I thought the joke about the green evo graphic was that it was faster because of "team green" and abec11

    So... After some discussion with other riders, I may have figured out how to solve the mysterious "bushing-bite" problem.

    If you are running ELIMS, you need to run the SHORT side of the Elim into the hanger. It is imperative that you do so. If you run the rounded side (w/ spherical dish), the hanger:

    A) Could pop out of the bushing seat (and thus into your baseplate)
    B) Would not have full connection with the Elim and thus have a dead spot in the middle

    SO.

    REMEMBER TO RUN THE SHORT SIDE OF YOUR ELIM INTO THE HANGER.

    So after testing, and figuring out exactly what would need to be changed to make the trucks stronger, I have figured it out.

    I've added material along the lower beam, and filled in the back of the truck connecting the lower to the upper beam. Doing this adds 30% strength, which is pretty rad considering how minor it is, and how little weight it adds. It is very difficult to notice aesthetically as well, but those with a trained eye (Aera owners) will see it right away.

    The new material I've been working with, alone, adds 50% strength. If you add that up... You're looking at fully 80% stronger which is some serious gains. I will still be offering the 6061 of days past, and it will be at a slightly lower rate. The new material, as it is literally 5x more expensive, will be the highest quality set of trucks you can buy. The price must reflect that.

    The first run of 20 will be going on my trip with me. The week after I leave (Oct 25th), there will be more trucks flying off the machines at which point the store will open.

    Thanks a ton for all your support! I will never stop.

    So C$375.00 (Answers) x 5 = C$1875 retail

    Is that right?
