If the wheels don't stick, time to change wheels. Response is set to my preference, not too little and not too much. So when comparing stock to tuned, there is a big difference in reaction of the trucks/skates.
Exactly! and I've been preaching "Bushing Science" for the longest time... people don't put enough emphasis on their bushing set-up. Kudos to you fierocious1 !!
