What do you guys think about the skat trak extremes 18.5x10x8's? They are small but extremely light. I found that they sink a bit on take off in the sand but ride on top of the sand well at higher speed. I haven't attempted any hill climbs yet. Any other opinions?[/b]
Those are meant for mini's. I run those on my daughter's predator 90.
My comp cut brats are about 3lbs lighter than her 18.5x10x8 gliders.
If you don't have the money for brats, then 7's in a 21x12x8 are the way to go. If you race 300' flats mostly then maybe some 8's
My Brats are the 6 paddle flavor. Here is a pic of me going to race a Zilla and I end up getting a better match with a bolt on 450R with boltons and spindle mount fronts. He was running a 9 paddle 22" hauler.
Btw, My LTR is still running only a 400ex filter and cherry bomb.
Hand is down and I'm moving.... you can see the roost from the 450R on the right side of the pic we both timed it about the same.
out of the hole and all non-drag racers get dropped. Remember thats my 6 paddle brats to his 9 paddle haulers out of the hole.
At the top of the hill it looks like I'm ahead but we are about dead even. From this angle you get to also see the difference in Rider size. My brats = pretty much any advantage he thought he had. If he had 7's or Brats on his bike he would have murdered me for sure.
basicly you can buy brats now or talk about how you wish you would have bought brats later.
