-All four wheels stay on the ground without a problem when throwing slides, you can tell by your thane lines and this allows for much more even wear and longer life for your wheels
-The stability is excellent as there is no slop in the bushing seat
-For maintenance you need to either put some dish soap or speed lube in the Delrin Pivot cup to make sure that your hanger can turn with ease and doesn't catch anywhere
-If you're trying to decide what size to go, depending on the size of your board I recommend either using the 186mm or the 179mm as most boards are within that range. I personally use the 186mm and they're fantastic on setups like the Rayne Vandal or Subsonic Killjoy, Racecar, any drop down or drop through setup, and any 9"-10" wide top mount
-You WILL need Half Inch risers and long enough hardware (which DBS offers 2" Hardware which works) when you purchase these trucks, they lean like none other and you are more prone to get wheel bite without risers.
-Also when it comes to maintenance when putting on bearings make sure that the nut on each side of the hanger is all the way tightened and locked or else it can fall off and that is not fun when you're going fast into a slide. I only had issues with Zealous bearings with this because there wasn't enough room to tighten the bearings down all the way.
-I recommend either Oust bearings, Bones Reds, or DBS regular or Built-in DBS bearings. Get some Caliber Spacers with speed rings and you'll be good to go.
-I run my trucks at 45 degrees so that I don't have to mess with putting two washers on the baseplate, it's nice not needing a washer on the bushing that sits on the baseplate as the baseplate acts as an Amish Washer. Otherwise get Amish Washers as they are made for these trucks and work great! Plus at 45 degrees the trucks feel great for freeride as well as downhill
-Buzzed can take a BEATING! I've hit ramps with my Buzzed going about 10-15mph and getting about 5 feet of air and landed no problem, I have yet to bend these hangers :)
-They don't like the rain, and I had the unfortunate experience of riding with them in the rain but WD-40 took all the rust spots off just fine and I dried them and haven't had an issue since :)
Buy Them :) They Rock
