Ask ScooterDad: Why are my girls Razor Pro XXX scooters slower than my Grit Tremor? Bearings?

Answer: 

Bearings could be a factor, but it's more likely the durometer of the wheels. That is, the hardness of the urethane determines how fast a wheel is. Harder wheels are faster, but less sticky. Another factor could be precision in machining. If the tolerances on the Grit are more accurate, then everything will fit better and there will be less resistance to smooth rolling. If the fork and wheel hubs are poorly machined, then it can impact how freely the bearings can spin.

Ask ScooterDad: i recently purchased a grit tremor and within weeks the bars started to wobble, is there any way to fix this without limiting how fast my deck can spin

Answer: 

You need to tighten your compression, which is something that you need to do for regular maintenance on your scooter. There is a fine balance between your compression being tight enough to hold your HIC shim snug and loose enough to allow for your headset to spin. Remember that the weight of your bars will make your headset feel more loose when they are on, so tighten your HIC shim a little more than you think it should be. New scooters, or rebuild scooters, will often loosen up since all the parts need to break in and seat properly after some use. What you're experiencing is very normal.
