I heard that to adjust the Radikal dragon tail that you just swap out bushings to adjust it, is it the same with the dragon claw?
Its like a gift. I can't control it.

Cameron, the front and rear trucks can be fine tuned by adjusting the king pin nut, but not a lot. You should see no more than about one thread above the top of the king pin nut. ANYTHING more than fine tuning should be done by changing bushings. This is why we have bushing of 75A, 80A, 85A, 90A and 95A. If you or anybody else have any questions just e-mail me a phone # to Keith@KeithHollien.com and I will get back to you.

Later Keith, Team Radikal.

I should pay more attention to these forums. I was having an adjustment issue last weekend. Couldn't figure out why I couldn't tighten the truck sufficiently. I guess I needed to swap bushings. I spent a lot of time milling that damn stimulator too! No wonder Barker handed me a blue bushing.
