Converting pintail deck to downhill deck
No one in our project has enough solid works knowledge to create a downhill deck design that could be cut out by a CNC router. So for now (until I am taking a CAD class next trimester) we are going to trace a pintail I own and convert it into a downhill board my making a few modifications to the shape. What type of things do you think we should do to the shape of a pintail to make it more downhillish? I was thinking cutting off the tail wheel cutouts, maybe making some cuts along the rails.

Don't drop mount and tip mount mount the same way? From the top down? Im missing some logic here, aren't i ?
@yourtrucks top mount means the board is on top of the trucks (example- bustin boombox- landyachts wolfshark) drop mount commonly called a drop through is the baseplate is on top of the deck as the hangar is on the bottom ( examples- landyachts drop carve -bustin maestro)
Awesome. Thanks DeathSlinger! Although I have to add "...drop through is the baseplate on top of the deck ..." See how I got confused there? XD
