Radikal bushing combos

Post by Lawrence Kurtz » Wed Mar 03, 2010 3:09 am

Just received a front Radikal from another member. It looks to be set up with a clear and green. The green is too hard....right? What would be an alternate bushing for the inner? I have some white, orange and blue Khiro Barrels. Or do I need to stick with the Radikal bushing?

First, knowing what you weigh is important, but yes, green is probabloy too hard in the front. You can try anything, but Rads originally shipped with green stims, they work. I imagine venoms and abec11 would work too.

Use anything you want, just keep the geometry the same. Radikals are not made to be tightened like a regular truck. Use the search function, read thru the Radikal forum under "truck mfg", or contact Ketih Hollien.

The clear inner, white khiro outer seem to feel ok. wrenched up the rig last nite with the splitfire rear. I read some of the posts so I tried dewedging the rear 5-10 degrees from horizontal. Not sure if I wedged the front radikal too much. I have a 15 degree wedge there.
