Sinister6 Here's another video from Mt Blanca, CO going back down Jaws2. This is also the obstacle that has the plaque in memory of one of the individuals that have died on this trail.

Sounds like a plan! You find yourself near Colorado Springs we'll hit some trails down here and grab a bite after!

Sinister6 Trail really was great!
The MTZ's do really well in winter conditions. I had the last set Siped, and noticed better performance on packed ice and snow. And I believe it improved traction on the trail too, especially slippery rocks. Colorado like Wyoming can get some pretty intense storms. If we had bad weather (snow) rolling in I would usually let anywhere from 7 to 15 pounds of air out of the tires to drive to work. The airing down combined with the tires being Siped really improved traction on snow packed roads.

Brit Nick Thanks for the info.

I'm looking for tires that do well in snow and ice (Wyoming weather) and that are also capable in rocks, as that is what most of the trails around here are.

Looks like a great ride you had in Mt Blanca

Sinister6 We did Mt Blanca this last weekend. http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=112
Awesome weekend! We sacrificed 1- 40" MTR, 1-AntiRock and a Johnny joint on my front axle to the Jeep gods. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uovGjo2Q9ac - Video Tube for YouTube - iPhone/iPad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-vVjQe1tgA - Video Tube for YouTube - iPhone/iPad

More videos to come! It feels great to build a rig capable of doing a trail that the vast majority of people will never try simply because of its reputation!!

Sinister6 Balancers are working great! New 35's on Beadlocks unbalanced, roll down the highway like balanced wheels! Did a 400 mile trip this last weekend no issues even at 75mph.
I run MT BAJA MTZ on TrailReady Beadlocks.
09-03-2014 09:46 PM
Brit Nick Could you give us an update on the balancers ?

One more question. What kinda tires u run ?

I am almost tempted to see how much weight each individual tire would take if I had them balanced. Just to see how much the Centramatic Balancers are actually working.
