Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates.

Default Hey Doc - I was wondering SA to DA old Invaders

Doc - I just bought off eBay - RS1000 sure grip Invaders SA after researching a thread you contributed how to change to DA.
I purchased these to use for out door skating. Previously I had purchased a Riedell 220 boot using my old Jogger wheels with Super X SG plates for out doors, but Holy Moly that boot is too stiff. So back to the drawing board.
My question - is it possible to use the Old Jogger trucks and king pin to turn the SA to DA ?
I have already ordered the cushions and cups.

Unfortunately, that is not possible, although I have run a cross some rentals @ a rink in NC I used to roll where the clowns in the skate room tried to do it. I guess anything can fit if you have a big enough hammer..or maybe a big enough wrench in that case??

If you have the Delrin pivot cups and urethane cushions coming, you still will need the DA45 trucks. They are the only ones that will easily convert an Invader. I would recommend getting the Harry's stud king pins as well.. Also note: The DA45 trucks require conical cushions / retainers as well.

Thank you so much for your quick reply.
I ordered a set of urethane conical and a set of barrels with the conical cups to match the conical.
Where would I find the DA45 trucks ? And I guess the Delrin pivot cups you mentioned too ....and the Harry stud king pins.

I might just have to stick a conical on it and call it good.
