Pre-Ride Inspection

  • Make sure trucks pivot correctly and kingpin nuts are tightened.
  • Check for wear on wheels, bearings and bushings.
  • Check all nuts and bolts and make sure they are tightened. Loose bolts can quickly lead to accelerated wear and damage to vital components.
  • Turn on the remote and the drive and make sure both hub motors are in good working condition by pushing the throttle forward to test acceleration and by pulling the throttle back to test braking.
