Also, one should know that a go-pro hero 3 and basic editing software alone are not enough to get you anywhere near the quality shown in the video. You need a professional color adjustment, contrast adjustment, and fancy pixel-creating software for the super-slow-motion shots. I love my GoPro Hero 2...

Well don't get too excited just yet. When I purchased my GoPro Hero2 I was pretty disappointed to find that the "specs" lied about the FOV adjustability for 720. The packaging (and website) first claimed "180, 130, and 90 degree FOV for both 1080 and 720 filming. Then, after purchasing it and findin...

BAY AREA (CA) - New CROSSAIR Wheels

There is a little bit of color-scuffs from when in the box, but other than that the things are brand new and never been used. Come get 'em for 25 bucks . call me. Lo...

I went and measured my turning radius: 170" Diameter... meaning, thats what I could turn around in if two vertical walls were spaced that far apart. 170 / 2 = 85" Radius 85" / 12" = 7.08' Turning Radius. (from center of rotation to outside edge of outermost tire path) And I feel like that is a very ...

i use corel video studio. It offers a good amount of editing features and only costs 60 bucks. It's important to note that no video editing software will work well without a good video-card in your PC. (don't even think about HD Video editing without a good one). The big problem with all the cheaper...

Do you have a picture of the adjustable king pin because on second thought it seems like it would mess with the spring position/angle and tension It didn't have springs.... if I remember correctly it was a bushing setup, similar to the ones you see on longboards. It just had a swinging portion (loo...

thats why I said "coupled with". lol.
Minus the tie-rod assist, it turns on the same basic principle that a channel truck does.

Oh, one more thing: These guys are using a conventional channel-truck steering coupled with a "tie-rod assist", which basically means they have foot-control over how much the front truck steering-rate increases/decreases. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=J0dhBXBwXlk http://www....

Ive seen the adjustable truck before. I believe they already sell 'em for downhill guys. If I remember correctly they function as a king-pin angle adjustment. I believe it locks in place via pin & hole arrangement, allowing the user to get maximum or minimum steering from their truck. But they do no...

?? I'm confused. The question is - does the length of the track (space between wheels on an axle) effect turning radius. . NO. Picture the skateboard viewed from above, fully turned. You can extend the length of the axles all you want, but the board will still be traveling the same radius. (the "in...

the board tip angles, wheelbase, and truck travel are actually the key players in figuring a turning-radius. For our geometry the following would give you a tighter turning radius: - Steeper tip angles. - Shorter wheelbase. - More truck travel. (ours seem to stop when the spring bottoms out on itsel...

Yeah well, everything's been done including electric mountainboards. That is no reason to keep from doing it better. I think it would work very well. Invention is about making something work, not proving that something can't work. but you can save a lot of time and $ if you think of all the reasons...
