I read the other post that Bob did, and was wondering what is the best way to tune your foams? Got a set of Pitbulls and put Nova double duce 5.5 in and I'm not sure that they fill it enough. Trying to get a good understanding of a good setup. The pitbulls are flat treads not rounded like the rovers.

We shall see, I was happy with the grip, they are super sticky and bite down well. Need to play with the foams for sidehilling still a little too soft. But we shall find you after the comp on Sun.

Thanks Bob, Yes I would be interested. I used the foams I have the nova double duce 5.5 in the tire right now. They seem to be doing well. I have some extra gray foams I could bring on Sunday. They are larger than the ones that are in it now. Thanks
