Indy 166 Mini Dub Ultrathane around 1/8" riser and Rockin Rons waiting to go.

I have also used Kryptonics CX-66 around 64mm I think, so Dub Cons will fit well, but you will need 1/4" risers.

The mini Dubs seem perfect with these trucks as there is 0 wheelhang and the wheels are flush with the side of the Deck.

It doesn't bother me much, but I think your set up is just to much.

Its all personal preference anyway. I know I can get my deck to turn really well as it is.

64mm Dubs = 149mm hanger (indy's or Trackers)Indy 156 stage 8 has a 149mm hanger !

62mm Mini Dubs = sixtrack trackers,or indys 169's

62mm Cowskulls or center set wheels(60,61,62,64mm)= sixtrack trackers or 185 darts(depends on the personal preference) or Indy's 169's

Shogos 62mm = 139mm darts trackers or Indys149's stage8 or Indys 139 stage 9(stage 8 149 has a 139 hanger )

Now thats cleared up a bit of confusion I had about Indy trucks and their odd sizes. Why did they use 156 & 149 in stage 8 when they weren't concurrent with the hanger size?

 I built a sweet one for my Daughter "Squeaker's" (Leigh) Christmas present. I went with 1/2" Wedge Risers, Indy 169's, A Powell Tail Bone, A Powell Jaw Bone, BDS Ultra Mini-Dubs dyed purple, white bushings dyed purple. It was a teal colored top of the deck, so I cut out the logo from a BDS mini-poster and pasted on the board under clear pizza grip tape. And of course I had to go with the Rocin' Ron's Rockets for bearings... I'll get my Son to help me add a pic, I'm just a technologically challenged skatetard...  Roger "Doc".

For any of you looking to cut new due cut tape to go with the spayed panel found on the Bulldog Model - Here are the measurements of the lettering I took from my Sacred Heart Model. I assume that these will measure up with the Skull & Kane edition but you may want to check.

From the top to the bottom of the BDS measures 9 5/16" or 23.8mm

The Top of the B is 11" or 28cm from the edge of the nose

The Bottom of the S is 11 3/4" or 30cm from the edge of the tail allowing for change in angle of tail - put the tape flat on the deck.

Don't have a pic yet, but I used Tracker purple Staabs, Bones Reds, and Ultra Dubs dyed Purple. Can't bring myself to ride it.  She's a wall hanger.
