When I was in my teens we used to ice race. There was a lake with a cleared oval that was used for racing cars and we'd go out when it was empty. We'd put several hundred short sheet metal screws in our knobbies. It's a blast.

Awesome. We had a lake near where i lived. Made a sailboat with blades on it. We used to haul ass across the lake. Had to dodge the ice fishing shacks. Laughing emoticon No wonder we weren't killed (that was before gear). Laughing emoticon

I love the steering damper (looks like an old Ohlins unit!) and the correct studding on the tires (full on left sidewall, light on right sidewall). Those guys aren't playing! Clap emoticon
