Loose.  Also, they're pretty loosely bolted to the board, but that's because I'm to lazy to tighten those bolts.

I ride my trucks way tight.  Whenever I get new trucks I always replace the bushings with Lucky Hard Kegs and I tighten them down.  I also always use riser pads, more for shock absorption than anything.  Loose trucks = wheel bite.

Kinda in the middle but more on the loose side. i carve better with looser trucks, i tighten them up a little when i bomb hills to help with speed wobble, but now i've learned a new trick to help with that.

as loose as they'll go without the bolt coming off all the time.

you'll never be able to do 3:20.

I was actually watching that clip just the other day.
yes 3:20 is ridiculous!

I ride my indy's pretty much how they come from the factory. I've found that if I try to adjust them at all that I'm never happy with them so I just leave them how they are.

i like them medium to loose.
so i'm stable enough to do tricks, yet loose so i can carve and move.
plus i weigh 220 (i'm like 6'4) so i have to tighten the trucks abit..

loose is good. not loose to the point where you have to do something kooky like glue your nut on, or take out a washer, but loose enough to get hot and bothered...

you know?
