I have been running Holeshots, but there is a ton of traction so I am sure BK Bars, Taper pins, etc will all be hooked up.

Thanks but we'll test them during the race. I've only seen the track when I was passing through Tucson back in Aug. Very nice track set-up. Stopped at costco and found your track by accident.

Hahahaha! I am sure they will work just fine. The track has a ton of traction and it will groove up in a big way over the course of the weekend.

I have rin panther switches at CH and IMO they work as good as tapers and last longer. I run 10.5 brushless truck. I cannot say for buggy.

Sean, awesome to hear you will be able to make it out. I'm looking forward to a great weekend.

Thanks Rich
Desert--Yes the Panther tires will work well, the "adhesive" we have been applying o the track really has helped w/dust and traction. Tire wear is going up as well.
