All of my trucks are currently broke... I stole the servo off the sportsman for the xr10 because the ds's in the sportsman are busted, busted the gears in the servo on my comp truck and blew the gears in the axle on my xr10... I've got 4 trucks sitting around my bench all waiting on parts. I'm going to do my best to be there though, wish I could convince someone to ride out with me.

joe dont cut yourself short man. you and james are both very good especially considering the amount of money you have spent to get your guys crawler running. im amazed at some of the gates you guys have cleared so you two are always a threat of winning

The claws and the HB tires work well. Not sure bout the boss claws though. If it rains the rock will be very clean and dry up fairly quick. There will be some mud and puddles in between gates though so count on that. I ran Chisels before and wasn't very pleased with them. They work better with DD's and siped but the Rovers are dominating.

im probably gonna make a few climbs with my chisels then use my leopards to see which one i like more before we start the competition. if neither of them are working for me ill switch to sedonas

I ran Sedona's last time I was there. My Nova DD foams are too short to fill out the tire but the performance potential was definitely there....almost think they will work better than the Rover's and the Rover white dot's are pretty hard to beat there.
