I am running a WFB 95.5 chubby boardside and a APS 92.5 canon roadside with a sleeved washer under the chubby and a cup washer on the canon in the rear, and a WFB 93 chubby boardside and a APS 90 cone with a sleeved washer in the front. Trucks are Paris V2 Amanda Powell. I also installed 3M Safety-Walk under the truck mount, which is the stuff the Array Sticky Riser is made of, and 2.36mm thick Poron 4701-50 firm urethane sheeting, the stuff Loaded Pushin' Cushion was made of. I did away with shock pads under my trucks after reading a post Brad made on an e-skate blog saying there were better ways to dampen vibration, so I went looking for a better way. Poron may be it. I am running a mini in-out footstop up front and a aer-out foot stop flipped around backwards as an adjustable torque block. I have 1-1/2" washers on the deck with neoprene washers under them to protect the deck. Of course, Mr. Groucho advised through the planning process and green-lighted the project. I also swapped out the kingpin on my Charger 1 trucks to a 3" Khiro with the intent of grinding it down once the set-up was dialed in, but then discovered I could run tall bushings roadside and standard size boardside without messing with the geometry, but putting a lot more urethane between me and the road. I haven't had a chance to play with that one much yet, but I am sure it will be fun. All in all, these things are just gifts that keep on giving, investments in my well being, and I have certainly enjoyed every last little thing I have gotten from Brad and Tracey. I think I am at 7 boards now, so I don't see this train stopping soon...
