Torqueboards 218mm Trucks Chipping?

Hey guys,

I recently installed some new pivot cups on my TB218mm trucks, but due to an unrelated issue I had to take out and put in pivot cups a few times. However, even though I went pretty light on the pliers and the screwdriver, I still totally scratched up the top of the pivot cup seat. Then, when I was using vice grips to press the pivot cup in there real good (with a rag as a buffer between the tool and the metal of the truck) a piece of aluminum just came off! I guess I didn’t expect the aluminum to be nearly as soft. Anyone have this issue?



Sounds like you kinda went overkill…you shouldn’t need to use a vise grip to press the pivot cup back in.

If it doesn’t work, use force. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.




mine come on with the hangers most of the time and if not i put the auger on my bobcat and dig that bitch out of there :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: image

Yeah, I think I did go overkill. Whoops! Luckily it’s not actually an issue other than cosmetic. I bought new trucks because I’m a perfectionist, so expect some cheap ass 218mms sometime soon!


skateboard trucks will never stay perfect for long tho…:frowning:
