A lot of us want more stability, without giving up too much maneuverability. Long decks, harder bushings, and lower baseplate angles, increase stability, but at the cost of maneuverability. How can we have our cake and eat it too? Maybe you’ve got short board that is too twitchy, but you like the turning radius. Or maybe you’ve got an Evo that’s rock solid, but you’d like to be able to take a turn without merging into a new lane. Let’s hear some ideas?
My untested thoughts
trucks with more rake, and lower baseplate angle Rake supposedly makes the center feel dead, but the extreme-lean feel lively. Seems perfect, a stable center, but plenty of turn at the limits
softer bushings/cone bushings, cranked down hard Maybe softer/cone bushings will not get incrementally stiffer by very much as you lean from mild turn to extreme turn. That way you can crank them down a ton to have stability around center, without cutting off the limits of lean?
tkp rear Tkp in the rear adds trailing caster (like shopping cart wheels) which should theoretically add more return to center
