The transparent Yellow Stain is awesome!!!


Webb wides with 15° wedges up front and 7° wedges in the rear with BD Dubs and Ron's new ceramics. Track width is 11.5". Yellow tracker Stimulator & Red Khiro insert in the rear
. Blue Venom Eliminator  - 78a - & Red Khiro insert up front. Edger Grip @ the tip & tail with BDS die cut grip in the middle.

The Eliminators are the same shape as the Stimulators which are usually my top choice bottom bushing but they are slightly smaller allowing a little more lean. Trying to milk some quick turning agility out of this beast. Felt really good out on my street. Might even be my new short deck choice over the Q10" Blunt Nose

No camera here tonight but I will snap some shots on Friday at the park.

Indy 215's with bones white / hard bushings, 1/4 riser, team color dub con's with b /reds bearings, og Crooks rails and finished off with Flick grave yard grip. This is the first time I've rode BDS dub con's and like them a lot. This board is certainly as much fun as the Q12 and quickly becoming a favorite rider.

Had it out in the park today but only took it for a little spin. I really like the setup but need to log some time on it before giving some feedback.
Holt had his out the whole time and and seemed pretty pleased.
I'll post up a thread on the sesh a little later.

Wedges change the geometry of the truck which changes its turning characteristics.. The steeper the angle is the greater the effect.
The orientation of the wedge will either increase or decrease the turning radius.



Wheelbase is another thing that relates to the turning radius.



I wanted to make the Webb's turn a lot quicker so I wedged both front and rear trucks.
Trade off - a quick turning set up but is less stable at speed.

Generally the front truck is wedged more than the rear. Most people don't wedge the rear truck at all or reverse (points toward the center of the deck) the wedge if they do.

It all boils down to the desired use and rider preference so I recommend playing around with trucks, wedges, and bushings to find what suits your needs.

I use tracker inverted KP's as the GK's are too short for most applications.
