The newton was designed primarily for top mounting on a cutaway board. If you are currently using any one of the 50 degree trucks in a drop through
configuration and your board is about .35” thick, wheel clearance should be the same. If your board is thicker, you will get less rub with the newton. If
your board is thinner, you will get more wheel rub. Wheel rub has always been dependent on the shape of the board, width of the hanger, angle of the
trucks, size of the wheels used and tightness of your trucks. In a non-cutaway board, you will need to use riser pads. With some cutaway boards, riders
have even been able to drop mount, or use a drop deck. Always test for wheel rub standing still, with a full lean before riding.
