    You know I expect vids, right?

    That's a nice setup you got on the tires. I can't wait to see the mist that comes off those things when they tear into a slab of cold ice :D

    Darn this thing is huge :) Did you add the studs yourself to the tires or it's something available for the baja? If you did it yourself, what did you use?

    Could be interesting since I live on the shore of a river where they prep the ice for skating every winter!

    Very nice!

    ya went to the local motorsports shop and picked up 250 KoldKutter ice studs and put them in myself. 20ish bux for a bag of 250. does all 4 tires and gives you some spares (50 or so).

    it wasnt too bad, but at 40* the ice was WET as hell. but safe at 15inches thick yet. hardest thing was trying to keep the air filter dry. wasnt too bad but after 15 or 20 mins, it was starting to choke out due to the water saturating the air filter.

    Man that Track is BIG. WAY bigger than i hoped it was. i ll be editing and uploading some of the vid i got. wasnt much, as it sat on the dash of my Van while we were getting some runs in.
    should have it ready maybe tonight or tomorrow.

    So how much traction did you end up getting with those studs? Reminds me of the time my room mate and I went sledding on a frozen lake up there in MI. 150 mph across a frozen lake on a Yamaha RX-1....that thing was sick!
