i recently got the sector 9 fractor with butterball wheels and gullwing sidewinder trucks.i like to slide but find stand up slides with these trucks very unpredictable.which are better for stand up slides etc, double or single trucks?  please could you give me some names or trucks you recommend.

howsit ryan. if those sidewinders are the trucks i think they are, then i would say they are more geared towards cruising aroung and carving.
you'd be better off with regular reverse kingpin trucks like we have here on the site. http://www.longboardingsa.co.za/trucks.html

now that would depend on the rider!! bushings also play a role in this. trucks don't really make you slide better or worse. a more stable truck would probably be the sabre trucks though and if you want to be super stable check out the sabre CF-38 baseplates.
