my 8 with a straight twist!...webb shogo's painted blue from original black and dyed green dub cons to skarlet red, built-in-bearings, tail woody custom fit and stained, top grip with topdeck painted, and wave rails with another one  cut down and fit for nose grabs

 

( EDITED - buymedrinky PLEASE scale your images down. The huge versions stretch the entire thread out making it hard to read anything, I cut the one. Thanks and SCHWEET deck dude! - 2ND)

 

 

 

 

BADBACK (buymedrinky) I bought this deck from you, You said you didn't like it. Man It is SWEET....I got on and instantly made a connection. Looks like it may be hard to ride, but a few tweaks here and there....Once again Sweet!!!! This is MY new deck of choice. Almost too nice to Ride. GRIP LOOKS BETTER IN PERSON!..just need to see what it'll do on the Vert

Jeff showed me how to post pictures!
I set this up with OG Tracker 1/2 tracks and used sixtrack aluminium wheel spacers on the outside only of the trucks to offset the wheels. I think its a cool setup.

@ Ouch - Hows that set up ride? Are you able to compare it to a set up with Tracker Mids?

I have 4 Half Trackers that I bought before the deck came out, but haven't set mine up yet. I have Mids as well.

Has anyone tried Indy 101's? are they too wide on the inside?

Indy 101's would be too wide.  They're 1" wider than MidTracks, so you'd eat up a 1/2" inside on each truck.  Not enough room.  Anyways, a Tracker Man like you shouldn't be asking that question anyways.  Shame, Shame!!

Tony, I've only ridden mine set up like I have it, so I can't make a comparison. One thing to consider though is having to drill the deck for the old school plates. The new midtracks have the dart plates unless you got the reissues. My board has a real tight turning radius, which goes to reason, the narrower the trucks the tighter the turning. I'll probably never ride transition with it but its fun to screw around on.

I dont know why, but I love the look of 8's set up as 4's.  Maybe its the graphic?  Funny too how 'hangers' shouldnt be set up, yet if its an 8 they should be!  Due to the rarity of the components Im sure.  Not to worry... this picture only shows the set up sitting on the deck.  215's, Doh Doh's, Clear slanted risers, Dub Cons and Biltins.  No holes were drilled in the making of this picture!  I just wanted to see how it would look....

SDO, 101's rock! easily the best turning 'conventional' truck ever made.

I'd be tempted to have Chicken take some down to 88mm and run them on a 8 just to be different.  You know how I am.............

hey Hamm...
I've been saying this for a while now...
IF Indy would make 215's with the 101 geometry...
that'd be the BEST truck ever. PERIOD.
I use 101's on my slalom deck...they are fantastic.
