hella turning power!  I finally got to use mine just recently,  had them bolted to a BDS Dressen on display but took them off and put them on the new Scum Skates "Zipperhead" deck,  which by the way is 10" wide and not the 9" they state on theirs and other websites,  I gotta go black khiros on both 55's,  still gotta fine tune some shit but I can tell they are gonna be fun after my first run

Love my 55 Aces...I have three sets. Just got a black set.
The stock bushings on this run of trucks look different then those on the first run...either ones are perfect right out of the box...no need to get Bones mediums for me.

Would bigger wheels make any difference?  I have 60mm Winged Skulls on there now.  Maybe going to 62mm Cow Skulls would help?

Hmmmm...If they are bent off axis forward or backwards and not just upwards I could see that being the source of the wobble factor. Once you ride some straight ones you will know.

i'm 6'7" and 265lbs

I run Ace 55's w/ Bones hards and i've never looked back since they hit the market.

they had kinks to iron out in the beginning but their customer service is excellent & Joey T. & Shrewgy are top notch dudes.


viva la Ace!

What's up with the bushings on the newer Ace trucks (and the replacement bushings now available)?  These bushings are so hard, you can't turn the trucks.  Bushings on the earlier trucks were way softer.  Will boiling hard bushings make them any softer?

Probably not. The nice thing about the originals was the rebound they gave, although they were a little soft for me. I can't see how boiling them is going to make a difference to that.

Try some Venom barrels, they have so many options and work well.

Thanks for the input Tony and Raul.

I have heard of people boiling bushings to try to make them softer, but I can't imagine it would work either.  I doubt you can change their molecular structure that way. 

I just can't believe how much harder the new Ace bushings are than the old ones.  The nice thing about the old ones is that the trucks were great right off the shelf and you didn't have to mess with the bushings.  The old bushings might be a tad too soft, as Tony mentioned, but you get used to them. 

I have one set of Venom barrels (red), but they seem a little too hard.  I use the Bones bushings in all of my Indys, so like Raul said, I could go that route with the Ace trucks.  But, I want to use the barrel bushings if I can, which is how they come from the factory. So, for now, I have Khiro blue barrel/cone bushings in the back truck and an orange/white combo in the front.  Haven't tried it out yet, but hopefully the board won't be squirrely with those soft bushings.

I always replace OG bushings in all trucks.

I noticed Aces are squirrel like because pivot cup size is bigger than actual pivot. Too much play at that end of the truck. Maybe poor schematic translation at the factory, who knows. Used an Indy baseplate, squirreliness fixed, but now they turned slower like Trackers, so, uh yeah, shit, this could've gone better....[frown]

I still [love] my Ace trucks. Purchased a new set of black 66's online for my Gashead 38 about 6 months ago, they seem fine.

I have also had a pair of Ace's that had terrible wobble on the pivot in the pivot cup from new. I junked the stock pivot cups and put some Khrio replacements in.....much better but I still think that the pivot appears to be too short.

70's - there are so many duro's in the Venom line up. I prefer the regular bushes to the SHR variety. I've got a mixture of bushes in one set up including their street bushes (regular truck size) for the top/cone bushing. The barrels can be a bit on the tall side. You'll have to try a few different combos to find what works for you.
