yeah i guess i am at fault also for getting this thread hijacked and turned into a sand tire thread. maybe those killer moderaters and whoever else edit the site will clean it all up and move our sand tire questions, comments, and opinions to the write spot.[/b]
I almost skipped over the gearing thread, but something kept making me go back and read more :P

Generally once I see that Junkie and Fuel get posting back and forth, I have an immediate reaction to crack open the moderator tools :P It's always awesome information, just sadly never in the right spot hehe

Thanks for splitting off MX...I planned to do this today but you already know I am a slacker!

Yea, Fuel, Junkie and I must really love these topics!

OneSavage, I hope in all our blabbering you took away that yes there are custom V shaped tires much better then the SSII. The SSI in either play cut or comp cut and the ST Edges IMO are all better options then the SSII.

I think it's okay to derail this thing now. It has been informative long enough.

Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. The other half is shutting the [email protected]#! up.

Can I join the paddle party?

Too much paddle with what width of rims? That affects things a lot. I ran SS's a long time ago on 10X10's(was younger and really stupid then ) and would blow the tires right off with my built kfx. Got rid of them along time ago as well . Now I have a set of SS's for backups on 10X8 rims and they seem to work pretty good. Still heavy? YES! But the hookup is adequate now. I do run 21X12-8 7 paddle haulers(nanco carcass) and absolutely love them. They do everything great! The hook up on the haulers seems to stay pretty consistant which is nice. The SS's hookup seems to really change a lot depending on the condition of the sand(wet or dry). OKTRX knows I'm jealous of his brats, but there is no way I'm going to try them because I'm afraid that I will be trying to find the $300-400 to buy them after the ride

It's better to be quiet and thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt

When in doubt, GAS IT..... either you will fix the problem or end the suspense.

'89 310R, Pro-X cylinder, "fiveO" ported, race gas dome(198 psi), LRD pipe, 38mm airstryker, ESR intake, VF3 reeds, +1 housers/TCS triple rate zps

Don&#39;t you just hate that? :P

Everytime I come home from riding I find there&#39;s something else I need...usually in the $300 to $500 dollar range...of course...
