MessageSujet: Slalom setup tuning chez les allemands...   Mar 14 Aoû 2012 - 23:04

J'ai trouvé ça sur un autre forum. C'est un résumé d'échanges de emails et MPs d'un skater avec des membres du team et les designers des trucks.

Ça va sûrement intéresser les slalomeurs qui utilisent des trucks de précision. Y a plein de choses que plusieurs d'entre nous savaient déjà, et d'autres trucs qui sont très discutables.

Je l'ai édité un peu pour que ça soit plus compréhensible.

This is what i've been told many pavel/gog team riders are doing to increase performance.

I tried to summarize the best info from many emails/pms/etc...hope slalom-heads enjoy.

___________________________________________________________________________

Dom Kowalski uses soft inverted cones hourglassed...Foxy 72°, Homer 35° (approx)

(many pros now inverting soft cones, flipped roadside for faster/steeper courses)

___________________________________________________________________________

CBark runs Homer approx 32°.

____________________________________________________________________________

SteveP runs Homer 32-37° for TS/Hybrid/GS (adjusted accordingly), 72° Foxy

RacerX 11-25°... longer deck=more rear angle... runs Homer for TS/GS & Hybrid.

(uses Foxy if super steep downhill, lately mostly using Homer for all disciplines)

____________________________________________________________________________

Pappas runs Homer so loose you can shake his deck & it flops around...very stiff RacerX at 10°.

SteveP says his style is the most powerfull he has seen of all the pros.

___________________________________________________________________________

Frank.B runs a Homer for back truck (no shit) with kingpin just past vertical

He designed GoG trucks and does the Quality Control, so it's hard to question his logic.

____________________________________________________________________________

Chris Baumann made the 'sex block' bushing out of green bigzig for RacerX truck.

It's molded into the whole bushing seat so it gets pressure from all sides instead of mainly top/bottom.

He tried every duro bigzig and found the green to be best performance due to massive size.

____________________________________________________________________________

Many German pros don't use soft rear wheels for grip, they're using rear truck angle instead.

Evidently using a soft rear is "old fashioned". Rear truck angle influences grip these days.

___________________________________________________________________________

Many German pros are running 86-89a wheels, many use 89 front & back these days.

American pros are known for softer wheels than German pros...83-86 is still popular for super GS.

____________________________________________________________________________

Many pros don't use risers, just shockpads or nothing at all, even on rear...depends on deck/rider.

______________________________________________________________________________

Newer GoGs can be spaced to maximum axle width anytime...axle can handle maximum spacing no problem.

FrankB changed the design for the axles so they're stronger, no axles bent or snapped since update.

__________________________________________________________________________

GoGs don't require modification of bushing to accept spherical (like Rads for example)

__________________________________________________________________________

RacerX and Foxy "click or creaking noise" is fixed by using tight kingpin washer and perfect height bushing when engaged.

Buy washer with hole smaller than kingpin diameter, then file hole untill exact fit, if you don't want play at all.

Circumference of kingpin washer can affect noise, smaller usually better...experiment till success.
