You're gearing and tires were much better for off road than mine, but (useable) power wise they are still damn close. Perhaps peak power (like a drag race) you'll walk away from me, but I don't use peak power out on the trails.
Yeah, that's what I thought. ;) Speaking of lofting the front end. You were doing that a lot when I was following you. What's your secret for doing that?
don't do that...but if you do FILM IT!
