Nice looking set up on that Shogo. I think some guys were using the same for the Superpig as they`re very turny. About those wheels, I had similar results and when I tried a larger Abec Grippin, the wheels went over small pebbles no problem, so it may be a combo of size and hardness that counts.

Yeah, I saw that thread on Revenge trucks for the Superpig.  Probably really good for a board like that.  Even the Long Pig would probably be a good match.

And, yeah, taller wheels would probably help.  Mine are 70mm.  But, I'm pretty sure my softer 70mm Kryptonics would have rolled over the pebble.

Still loving the Mellow Yellows too.  They are just awesome street cruising wheels.

I thought it was bcuz I suck but I had Revenges on the same board w/mellow Shogos and nearly killed myself from turning too sharp. I gave up on the Revenges right away as they felt dangerous  to me. Got launched  off my board at moderate speed. Could have had wheel burn too but not sure exact problem. Had thoughts of getting launched at twice the speed and decided they weren't wise for me. Feel better now that you had same sorta issue.

I don't know how El Jeffe rides the Revenge trucks in bowls.  It would just scare me to death.

Anyway, what we got here are the Revenge Alpha I trucks, Sonic Red Dragons and hand cut BDS grip.  The wheels can stay, but I think the trucks got to go.

Tony, nice of you to drop in.  Been too long.

I just got some Tracker RT-X 149s for this board.  I'm thinking those should be the bomb.  Won't know for a while with all the snow on the ground, though.  It's only December, and I'm already sick of the cold.
