I used a pair of dykes...havent had the time to smooth them down yet, but a dremel works nicely.

tread patter is 1-2-1-2-1 on each side of the tire.

Awww, I got jipped. I thought it said "let's see what you looked like after cutting your stock Clod tires". When I saw that Shag had posted I thought, well, if you've seen the pic, you know what I thought..lol.

Funny, with all the tires and rims you've cut, awesome chassis' you've built, interesting toys you have, the one thing everybody wants to see is you covered in tire poo! LOL :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Anyone have any new tire cuts? I am looking at cutting my stock Clod tires to get a bit better grip. They spin very easy.

Shags cuts look freakin great. I would use a dremel to smooth it all over. Round out the edges, or cut em hard and square to keep the grip.

Holy old post batman, I hope this keeps up, reminds us of the past and keeps us on our toes!

Speaking of tire shaving. I found a guy in the lllinois mt race series's that shaves tires. I just sent him my stock clod tires to cut some weight off of. He got them today, should have them back next week sometime. I'll keep ya posted. If you need his name and contact info pm me
