Re: Taking Trampa Dampas out for more turning

You could also try using skate style trucks instead of channel trucks.
Or you could try using heel straps if you aren't already, they'll give you more leverage on the board so more steering.

Re: Gilaboards: Full suspension board

It would be a good model for a powered setup. With suspension like that you could have 1 central motor and use drive shafts to put power to the wheels

Re: Trampa new electric

I wonder if you could use it to get you up the hill and then disengage the motor to go down the hill, but still be able to still use it as a brake.
Does that make sense?

Re: Taking Trampa Dampas out for more turning

Hey, you could try moving the springs closer together like you can do on old scrub trucks and on some mbs matrix trucks. http://evilc.com/bbg/images/scrub_boost.jpg On these trucks you can move the whole spring and damper assembly close to the center giving you less resistance and more movement. All...

I think the best board you can get would be a trampa, they never break but they're a bit pricey. i found one here on ebay that's just in your budget. the mbs boards that you mentioned are good for starting out, but as you have allot of snowboarding experience you might outgrow them quickly. It's up ...

There isn't really much for them to change with the next one (if there is one) except for adding a ratchet. But if they were going to release a new one i'd of thought they'd release it with the rest of their new product line. i'd recommend getting heel straps now.

They are definitely worth getting if you've been snowboarding before. Most riders, especially in england prefer to ride with heel straps on, unless they're doing allot of freestyle. I'd recommend either Trampa heel straps or MBS Heels strap . The only difference between them is that the trampa ones ...

That could yield something amazing. Perhaps you could talk to ted and trampa and get some of his stuff for the top and bottom layers, with a wood, foam or plastic honeycomb sort of thing in between?
I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

i selected his post, then in the moderation box selected delete posts and spam, i can't remember exactly what to do on the next window without seeing it. and i don't want to experiment on a normal citizen incase i block them. But i think it was fairly selft explanatory.
