Does it have bearings in all the same places as a Radikal? The kingpin looks fixed in there, so if there is a bearing between the bushings, how do you swap the bottom bushing?

Another thing that I really like about the split-fire DS compared to the Radikal are the axles.

I would recommend getting a splitfire DS (as opposed to the original splitfire). In my opinion this is the most versatile truck on the market due to the fact that it fits with any Randal baseplate. I run it in the rear with a 35 degree Randal baseplate, and this setup gives more traction than the TT...
