    Why not? If you have the bucks, just bring nine modules with you and swip and swap to your hearts content.

    That's what I'm saying. With just three fronts and 3 tails you get 9 boards.

    Its weird when you start thinking about some of the things that must come into play when you start mixing different front and tails. Especially where they connect.

    the rails must all have to be the same...exactly the same in order to line up.
    the rocker must have to be the same at least near the transition point to line up.
    Board width. same
    Board thickness
    Bottom concaves
    Deck dome

    but maybe those things dont matter as much as...as the article says...it fits in your Mini Cooper

  8. this comes to mind...

  10. Sorry, but Mr. Potato Head was the first thing I thought of. Changin pieces around and all.

    What if... someone starts swappin parts around, stuff not even fittin together right, and then totally by accident discovers the ultimate config for max lift, or whatever?

    Somewhere along the shoreline...

    "Wha Happened?"

    "He was goin up for a big air, and just kept goin up."

    "Whaddya mean, just kept goin up?"

    "He just kept goin, dude. Til we couldn't see him no more."

    "No ****?"

    "No ****."

    "Dude"

    "Dude"

    So perhaps we are on the cusp of a historical discovery.

    Or it might just be Mr Tater Head. Not to be confused with Ron Tater Salad White.
