racer951 said:It seems like the companies that have just recently entered into the foray, (Maxxis & Mickey Thompson) the strategy is to throw a lot of money out to build their name FAST. It has worked with Mickey Thompson so far, a lot of racers have switched over. I would be interested to see if Maxxis has buggy tires. That could get me out to a few more races. Ya Fish, it sounds like a huge step-up; 1500 bucks for contingency every race is unheard of.
Edit: It kind of looks like it's for a certain tire, the "bighorn".
