PostSubject: Using BRT Hangers with Y Baseplates?   Thu Apr 07, 2016 4:12 am

I have seen a number of fingerboarders over the past couple of months using BRT hangers on Y baseplates and was wondering how this combination preforms? For instance, are they more responsive than (standard) BRT's; are they lighter; do they have a higher clearance for the wheels etc?

Also, when configuring in this combination is it be best to use Y style bushings?

ive seen loads of people try this over the years an gave it a try myself a long time ago

but they just didnt feel right, i guess BRTs are designed to fit together an so a Y trucks, i was worried i mite wear parts down or break the trucks

people probably do it to make ther decks stand out or be more original, but i dont think swapping hangers an baseplates around can make it perform any better

thats just my opinion though, im interested what other people have to say on this subject!

I always thought they did so because they had thrashed their BRT baseplates. It makes no sense otherwise. The only other difference I can see it making is the pivot cups. With YTrucks you can use the long, tubed pivot cups you cut yourself. I never thought those felt right with BRTs. Also, Y baseplates use that screw so people who lost their locknuts can still use super loose trucks.
