Well that could make things interesting... I'm not too worried about popping a bead. Surprisingly it has never seemed to be an issue. Even when crawling at 8psi. I usually run 20 psi in the sand.

As for other stuff breaking, like the UCA or LCA, well hopefully I just hold on for the ride and don't roll... I don't jump very often. I hit the sand once every few months or so but I usually do several jumps when I do go.

Every time I land I keep waiting to see my motor in my rearview mirror though... I need to get some motor mount gussets...

im looking to get new tires soon, options are bfg baja t/a's, pro comp a/t's, general grabbers, so far. it's for my half-ish dd, still debating about going up to 37's...but i feel 35's would be a better choice over all for the time being. what are your guys thoughts, also other tire suggestions would be appreciated.

Theres a reason everyone has them for racing!

1. cause they are awesome

2. Cause they get them for free or a ridiculously cheaper rate from sponsorship.
