Yes I do. Been taking my 86 to silver lake for many years. I've missed a few also. I also used 33" boggers on the front besides the desert tracks.

It's probably cheaper with over counter considering you can get everything in a package. I would recommend going with an all spring set up. Just my opinion.

I would not run Scat Trak paddles on a rig like this. I don't like Skat Traks in this application for a couple reasons. Drag slick casings have super thin sidewalls and the tread face is buffed so thin they puncture real easy and the cups are prone to breaking up and coming off with low tire pressure. If you were strictly racing then the Skat's would be fine. I use on Skat Trak for my sand drag needs but for the dunes play I prefer Sand Tire Unlimited tires.


A nice set of tall cut STU 20.00's would be just right on the 15x15 wheel. Anything smaller than 20.00's and you will go just as good with a set of 12.50x33 BFG Radial Mud Terrain type tires.
Best pass during 2015 races 3.092@104.4mph at Albany OR. All motor single 4 on race gas.
