One question.
Where exactly do you measure the wb on your decks?
Typically its measured from inner hole front to inne hole rear.
Cheers

Quote:
measured from centre of front truck axle to centre of rear truck axle using race angle baseplates . This is the only way to mesure the true " wheelbase "


That's true, but it makes it impossible to compare the wheelbase of your decks with the wheelbase of any other decks, unless you know exactly what trucks (and wedging) are being used for both decks.

If you use inner hole to inner hole then people can at least compare your decks to other decks.

I think easy comparison between decks is more important than technical correctness.

Just MO...

Fair call.
Some trucks vary between wheelbase using that method, thats all.
Slap some RII base plates and the wheelbase grows a lil bit.

There's a company in the states called Never Summer who must use the same method. They've got a 40" rig with what they claim 35" wb.
Add 2x 2.5" for oldskool truck pattern doesn't leave much left over for the rest of the deck.

My fave rig is 34.5" between inner to inner. Then again I'm a lanky b@$t@rd and need every inch I can get to rail it dropknee. Very Happy

Good to see you're making decks again Dave.
