Good point. DUH me lol. I am spinning quite a bit. I guess some new tires are in order. Or maybe warmer days comin soon will warm the surface up a bit and traction will be better. I guess we will see. Thanks for your help today Mr. Trips.

I have been thinking about trying the 23 tooth pinion. Just havent done it yet.
But since Im spinning wheels as is I think I'll work on my traction trouble before trying gearing.
