At stock wheelbase he should be able to run. 30 psi and never spin.

I had trouble with the first one I bought. It would spin pretty bad and only
lasted a couple of race weekends. The last two seem to be doing ok but
I'm switching to the power one after this one wears out.

Don't think that would work with quikgix's light bike with ported head and a 75 shot. Hell it wouldn't work on my 66" stock motor bike.

If the usoft/hookup won't work, then the non usoft damn sure won't work!

I picked up a new tire today from Custom Specialties Cycles http://handlebarheaven.com/csi.html. They recieved a new shipment today. I noticed that the 180s seemed a little drier and harder than the 190s, and the 180s I have gotten from Custom Specialties Cycles in the past. I went with the 190 this time, but I will go back to 180s when I see them at the quality level they use to be.
The internet is not always the best route to go when buying tire IMO. It cost alittle more to buy from your local vender, but you get to see what you are buying before it is at your door step.
If you need a new hook-up give Custom Specialties Cycles http://handlebarheaven.com/csi.html a call. All of their 190s are fresh and of good quality. I checked them all.

I bought one for dad when they first came out. If you are on a great track like dakota runs on (MIR) then there will be zero issues. If you are on a questionable track or don't have your suspension absolutely dialed in then you can hang it up. the hook up won't hook. Dad had better luck out of the full bore and the U-soft than he did with the hookup and that was with him at about 61-62" and weighing 145 lbs. Needless to say, He runs a 008 slick because when the hookup spins, it hooks.

I will only use the 200 drag radial, and now that it's getting hot traction will be harder to come by. Especially with tracks cutting back on glue!!! it's a quarter inch wider than the 190,and holds a lot better. 1 pound of tire weight doesn't mean much if you just got beat from spinning. most of the time when traction is hard to come by. We run only 8 pounds of air.
