I can't for the life of me get my back truck (45) to get my power to the floor like my front truck (5). It just deflects to much and eats my push, but it sure does turn nice on the derby track . this is just my opinion.
Loosen the rear truck or put a softer cushion on it, It lets the truck settle down with less pressure so the tires will bite.
