Is the Trampa Carver with Mini Spring Trucks Stable Enough for 40mph? Advice Greatly Appreciated!

I’m planning out my first build, and I need some advice.

The current plan is to make a 4wd build on a Trampa Street Carver Deck with Mini Spring trucks and 8in street wheels

I’m going to gear the 4 190kv 6374s at 4:1 for a rough speed of 42 mph according to the esk8 calculator.

Is this deck + trucks combination going to feel unstable at speed?

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome!

Press X to doubt?

Channel trucks are not meant to go fast, you want really stuff urethane eggs if you do, and if you’re a heavy rider you’re more likely to wobble but if you’re well equipped you can try

Definitely get rid of the springs. The trucks are fine with barrels. I swapped just the front to barrels. It’s pretty right but with the right tuning it’s achievable

Most stable I’ve ever ridden was on @ahravs board. Hit 45 or something like that. Maybe follow his setup of you got the need

Well i’ve myself hot a carver with the mini trucks also have 6374’s, i miss the motor mounts but i doubt that you’ll be able to fit 6374’s on anything else than the trampa carver mounts. You should definitely NOT get the mini ones, i go downhill on it in my town hit about barelly 20 miles per hour and it ain’t that stable (i’m a noob tho so maybe thats why) if you want mini trucks tho i’d happily sell mine to you lol

What barrels/springs do you have on it?

I haven’t bought anything yet, so I could use pretty much anything. I forgot to mention it in the post but I’m planning to use the Trampa barrels. I’m pretty new to all of this - is there a better option?

Absolutely there are better ways. Trampa trucks are not for speed. Quite a few hooligans have need for speed. @CiscoV comes to mind as well.

Usual recipe is Evo or equivalent deck with precision trucks on metro tires and good hubs.

Well. Things might be a little different now with new barrels. I mean. I assume they’re close to mbs matrix 2 in stability Right. But as stated above. There are better ways to achieve 40mph without feeling the sketchiness of channel trucks lol

Thats fair. My setup is fine right up to 35/40 trampa ultimate trucks, front barrels and rear springs.

@ZachTetra you need to ask @Cyanoacrylate if he’s made of $ first

They’re awesome trucks for carving. Not so much to try to keep up with today’s fast kids is all I can say

Perfect combo y’all might wanna try is @3DServisas fb320s with mbs shockblocks and metal plates. Definitely an experience

Combines the width of hypertrucks with stability/support of matrix shockblocks :heart_eyes:

@Agressivstreetlamp are you running full size trucks or the minis? Also @ZachTetra this isn’t a budget build by any means, but I’m not sure I can stomach $900 trucks lol

Full size ultimates

One of the main reasons I chose to go with the mtb trampa deck and trucks is that I wanted to be able to install bindings and jump things - Do people do that with street decks like the GT40 too?

Haha. I wouldn’t think so.

Why not get Boardnamics 270mm trucks? They come stock with 96a barrel bushings and split angles so they are good for speed

I am running 8" wheels by using a 75mm shoulder bolt and 16100-2RS bearings, works great. Only catch is you need to use a 60T pulley to run the idlers

I don’t know much about them, but do you think the MBS matrix 2 trucks would fair any better?

Matrix II Pro trucks are very good, they are solidly built and there are ways to make them very stable
