I seen a guy running this spring set-up a couple 2-3 weeks ago at Revelation in CA. I doubt he would give up the oil piston combination to me though. He runs really well with it.

Thanks. I have yet to run it with that head on it. I just put it on a couple of days ago. It's the B-mods head.

I think I'm going to have to send Mr. McGoo a body to see what he can come up with, minus the pink of course.

Anyone hear about pro-line making a holeshot xtr? Now that the bow-tie's are in xtr, i was wondering if they would make the holeshot in that compound.

XTR is proline's firm tire. It has the hardest compound of them all.(m3, m2,) Great for long main's.

I've been having great luck with knock offs of crime fighters called Pro-Grip Cheetah tires. $22.95 for a full set of 4 and rims. Yes, I said $22.95! They are like an xtr compound. Find them on ebay

I think we've all seen these. They're just too damned expensive.
