    My Buddy Carr setup included, GK Jay Adams trucks, BDS winged skulls, Rockin Rons bearings, and 1/4 risers. The trucks ran a little small, but are very light. I switched out the winged skulls for OJ II Team Riders for a little more speed. I'm waiting for the next model to come out, hopefully with a little more wheel base and length. This is the only BDS board I've ridden consistantly, and look forward to mounting and riding the New Shogo Longboard. Overall I give the Buddy Carr an 7.5 out of 10

My buddy, the Buddy Carr. Tracker 6tracks with inverted kingpins, black hourglass bottom, bones hardcore black top bushings. Tracker hard wedge riser front. Tracker 5/16" hard flat riser back. Bones SPF 60mms with Rockin Ron's steel Rockets. I threw a set of Powell thin ribs on just for giggles. I wish this board still looked this good. It's been ridden hard since the photo was taken.

Edgers are (were?) made by Cor-Tech out of Australia.. the same people responsible for the excellent Cockroach wheels.. they are damn fine wheels...

I'm running my Buddy with some Indy 159's, 1/4" Khiro soft risers and some Spitfire Salba's 60mm...not too impressed with the Salba's.

I'm tinking about putting either my Skatebuilt spf60's or some BDS ultra mini dubs. I'm leaning more towards the mini dubs for something different (no ones mentioned them yet.) What do you guys think?

 Grindit, sounds awesome to me... I'd go with the BDS Ultrathane Mini-Dubs, they are a great wheel. Fast, smooth and grippy!!! I'm setting a Buddy Carr up for my Daughter with Indy 149's and The Royal Blue Mini-Dubs. She likes a softer wheel, being 12 years old her skate is her primary for of transpo other than the Mom & Dad Taxi... Roger "Doc".

Just yesterday I received my Indy 149's and orange mini dubs. My Carr is on the way and I'm stoked. 

Was anyone else intimidated by the  size of the mini dubs the first time they saw them? I'm used to large "Soft" wheels on my longboard, and the kids I see riding street decks use small "hard" wheels.

I know I can't say anything until i've actually given them a run, but from what I hear they perform very well on concrete. Should I be considering a different wheel if I'm going to be riding wood ramps more so than concrete.

I have plans to ride my friends pool next month, but after that I need a wheel thats versatile.

I thought they were big and would be soft( slow) but this last weekend they were broke in , by a friend of mine that had the correct hanger width. His response to the Ultrathane was ""Grippy, but so fast!"-Clay Elliott, Milw., Wi. @ Four Season's "Turf-Style Clover".

I still have 2 unused Buddy Carrs and 2 in use buddy carrs, my pool set up is and always will be the carr with the tracker 6 tracks with mini dubs and whatever bearrings i feel like putting in at the time, and my vert board(which is replaced as of today) was the carr with the cow skulls same trucks but hella tighter and random bearrings(not as random as you think, usually whatever is my favorite brand at the time, usually bone super swiss, oust 9s, or the rocknrons)

So Kazi, you suggest smaller wheels if I plan on riding ramps?

 I'm setting up my Daughter (Squeaker's) Buddy Carr for her Christmas present. I want to use the BDS yellow soft pour mini-dubs. What width of Indy's would you use with these wheels? Squeaker likes the softer wheels because she rides mostly street, sidewalks and parking lots...
