Use Mr. Sticky wheels.

I have been playing roller since they had plastic frames way back in the day. I have tried every wheel, including the "Live Action" wheels they had out 10 years ago, that "let you stop just like you where on ice" roflmao

Live action was a joke, they had little strips of metal in the wheel and it forced the rubber to seperate from the hub..and the wheels weighed 100lbs each.

I can't stop like I can on ice with Mr. Stickys, that is impossible. However, I can stop on a dime if I am not going full speed. I can actually slide on the wheels like I am on ice before I pull up.

Took years to learn how to do that, but it can be done. You have to wear away the film the wheel is coated with before you can do that, however. A new wheel creates too much friction to actually slide on it.
