I don't practice this so I shouldn't preach it. But i am a firm believer in floating or digging. Track conditions also play into what tires you are going to put on. But in anything really deep I am in favor of floating, And the #1 problem I see with 99% of guys set ups is that they will put wides on the back to float and put skinny's on the front to try and steer or dig.(I'm not sure which) I KNOW WHAT YOUR SAYING.... WE HAVE ALL SEEN MANY, MANY FAST TRUCKS RUN THIS SET UP. PERSONALLY I ATTRIBUTE IT TO A DRAG RACE SET UP WHERE THE FRONT ISN'T DOING THAT MUCH, SO YOU WANT TO LOOSE ROTATING WEIGHT. AND THE REAR YOU WANT TO KEEP BITING LARGE FOR THE DIRT/THIN MUD HOOK.
But if in deep or medium mud why do you want to float the back? why wouldn't you want to keep your front end up and out which would cause your pumpkin not to drag?
Float and Float..... or Dig and Dig?
I'm in favor of the latter...in 70+ % of the tracks we see digging with skinny something's is winning. The only Problem I see is if the diggers don't get severely bogged down by deep stuff, it is hard for you with wides to get their hole shot and track speed in the first part of the track, after that it may be too late!!
Kjett you've raced as much as I have, I just put this up for the younger ones that may be reading this posting.
Let us know how what you decide!!
