@cupofsteez_ @jasonhawk_810 Cole explained it perfectly. Riding a narrower truck like that makes it easier to balance 50's on round stuff. That way when you lock in, even though you are against the wheels, you're still somewhat closer to the middle of the board.
That's a sick board!
@jasonhawk_810 watch out though, can make your board unstable when flipping it. main reason why I went straight 8 w 8'' trucks instead of a 7.88 board w either 7.75 or 8'' trucks. the change in physics does make it interesting. a lot of my homies skate an 8.18 w 8 trucks
The real size is 8.375 I think some 8.3
Aren't 145s for 8>?!? Isn't this a 8.1? He should be riding 147 HI @billy_marks
@dtalgh maybe you're riding the wrong set up
@billy_marks I don't know. I ride the Gunmetal ones and they said so
