Compare the crazy diversity of all those slalom setups to the bland genericism of street setups.

Here's my slalom rig #2. #1 was not quite right, too narrow at the front, no concave and the Bennett wasn't happening for me. Now I've got more leverage at the front and a Starfire truck from the late 70s I think. I'm getting plenty of speed from the pump and quick turn in but I'm yet to test it out though the cones.

The concave looks nice in the front there Hambo. What are the dimensions?? Length, WB and width.

The deck is an 80s mini blank that I got from Melbourne Surf Shop; I wasn't digging it as a rider, it has a kind of weird tail. Length 30, Width at widest 9, Width at tail 8, WB 18, Nose 4. There's decent concave at the front tapering to pretty much none at the rear. It may need a little trim up front and possibly a reshape of the tail but first impressions are not bad at all.

17 3/4" ish WB. A PC influence no doubt. The front wedgy from hell. No wonder you guys can wizz in and out of 5 ft-ers. The NACHOS sure do breed em tight.
Nice work Andy!
