Precision skating made perfect

I never like skating with new trucks: they are slippery, not broken in yet and you slide of the ledge easily. But the Thunder Hollow Lights broke in super fast. What I love about the trucks is that they react directly. If I bend a little to turn, they react as fast as I want to. It makes the trucks reliable and feels like precision skating made perfect. They are actually super light and make me ollie higher obstacles. The only disadvantage I can think of is that I have wheel bite really fast. I like to skate my trucks loose, so I do not have to do much to turn. But that also gives me wheel bite really easily. You can try to tighten your trucks a bit more if that really is a problem. Or try harder bushings, but I like mine medium.
All together, these trucks are my personal favorite. They do exactly what I want. I feel very comfortable on these trucks and the way they react. They actually made me more secure on my board. Besides the wheel bites, I can not imagine another disadvantage of these trucks. If you like lightweight and precision, these Thunder trucks are a real recommendation. Get some harder bushings if you get annoyed by the wheel bites; even though that is something you can hardly get rid of with any kind of truck.
