2 new noMpa's

Post by Martin » Thu Apr 17, 2014 3:47 pm

Hi all . as mentioned earlier , a G4s trampa from ebay with a bent truck now has a noSno freestyle set of trucks on . they are abit shorter than standard . I have power planed 4cm off each side so it sits horizontaly with 14 stone on . it has sk8 truck angle short tips so is a bit slow to turn but does turn enough . i like it . be nicer on 8 inch tires .

The other is my race board with a long tip channel truck deck . its a good bit thicker and has been power planed parallel to just over 4 inches . Both rides have bashing restraint plates - cups on the top surface of the deck only . mainly as i made 4 for one ride but found 2 is enough .Great like a cross between a marsh mallow and a pogo stick . i tried some noSno composite trucks ,flow bindings make for a quick exit . had fun this eve on a set of 11 inch sack truck tires down the north face of Wittenham clumps with 5 psi on . very cumfy drifty carving . I'd like to see if i can go slowly enough to get down Badbury Clump clean from the top in round 4 . I'll find some pics :-)

The great thing about flows compared to other high backs is in a mas pile up ' pop' and your out . you can be back down bx avoiding last place . If you have a gut also less time with a purple face .

The most useful tool for stress free noMpa building is a set of digital vernier calipers . Mine were just 17 quid .with these you can actually scribe or scratch an accurate centre line down your deck and alloy bush cup plates . then mark out all your holes . A centre punch is great to mark drill holes . i then line up all my centres , wind down the bushes a few turns . pop some wheels on and push it up and down a flat surface tapping the bushes with a soft mallet until it runs nice and straight . then wind down tight nd re test . Power planning the deck to suit is real fast 2mm a go. use ya vernier gauges to mark up and over lay with fat marker pen . If you have a skate truck style trampa deck , you can remove width until you get the tip angle you desire .
Have one of each ! :-)

ps from screwfix you can get m6 threaded inserts to mount your bindings without gert nuts poking out the bottom . again vernier not very near . the first one i built by eye and it pisses me of to think it is all a tad out . works tho !
