I debating between a 20x11-8 itp hole shot or maxis razor. I happen to have a fresh pair of 8x8 rear rims and looking the better or best dirt drag tire to fit the 8's. ((wish they were 9's lots more tire choices))
.
.
im running a stock length 250x with a kz 650 inline4 cyl enj.
.
( for those not fimallar with Busco Beach the drag strip is a loose top sand clay mix like you would see on MX tracks

Since you have a inline 4 650cc motor I reccomend spending the money on paddle tires, 4 snows work really well but are said to be more of a lower HP motor choice.

I think you would have a better choice with some 12 paddle or even 14 paddle tires, Youll spin razrs or holeshots way to much to do any good.

thanks for the reply :) I actually hooked well this weekend using a borrowed pair of Kenda bear claws. they were 22x12-10 http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/43/81/165/723/-/5375/Kenda-Bear-Claw-ATV-Tire. I was neck and neck with some 800 4x4 canam's (wow they are fast)
.
the bear claws showed lots of wear in about 30-50 runs.
.
Ive thought of paddles but figured they'd be too aggressive. i think I have to agree that the hole shots wont be aggressive enough.
.
Ima try to borrow a pair of paddles to test b4 buying. or try to locate some used ones on the cheap. lots of guys get em then don't like them.
.
I also plan to modify my kenda claws (not the bear claws) by removing some knobs and adding snow spikes. if they still aren't enough I can use them for trails n stuff.

Thats cool, sounds like your heading in the right direction.

I actually have a pair of razrs im shaving knobbs off of, The best tool I found so far is a $30 harbor freight recipricating grinder with a flat blade. I wana test and tune with them on so my times run low, then when I race Ill throw on the snows or the paddles after bets are made...:blah:

What times did the 650 run?

lol :) now im lookin the best paddle for my app. busco's strip isnt soft dessert like sand . however the launch spot getts chewed up to about 3" till you get to the hard pack.
.
then as i leave the gate the track gets rather hard with just 0.5" to 1" of soft over the hard.
.
i was thinking somthing ribbed like the sand gecko's or desert storms http://www.skat-trak.com/atvsand_main.html#
.
but ive read the 6 paddle brats kill on the drag strip . just dont know if theyll hold up on the hard pack??
.
.I don't know my times for there isn't any lights or timer's.
I would think during comp there would be something but i haven't entered any comp's yet .
.
thats why I compared my runs to the 800 4x4 canams. They are the fastest stock quad ive seen . I haven't beat a 800 canam yet. but im only a half length behind them in 2nd gear and they are getting me on the holeshot then i catch up but can't pass them b4 the 300 ft mark.
.
im getting some extra sprockets to lower my final drive which should improve my hole shot and acceleration.
.
not to mention when i hit the top of third gear im not eager to go faster, and don't know anywhere long and smooth enough to get any use from 4th and 5th gear. i wanna try to make third my 300 ft finish

My track has basically the same dirt texture that you decribed.

I used 8 paddle 21in skat traks on my 440ex drag bike, I beat alot of banshee's and alot of modded 450r's, I beat every big 4x4 I ever raced.

If you want a entry level paddle tire, get the ams sand snakes, I believe rockymountain has or had them for like $30 a piece.

thx 4 the advice Johndoe ...
.
I was just looking at paddle tires and think the skat tracks will be the way to go vs other brands. the other paddle tires have wimpy looking paddles i think ill rip em off on the hard pack.
.
the skat tracks have nice beefy looking paddles that may just hold up to the abuse..but ima have to save up a bit for them there very pricey. ripper 10 paddle

.
Iv'e thought of getting some 22" mudlite's as well and modding as necessary

Iv'e only been twice with this quad.
.
I don't think I know the guys u'r talking about...But may have met them?
.
I was told that there is a new drag track in Goldsboro N.C. that they will be holding the drag races @ ( instead of busco :( )
.
If anyone has the address and, name of this new track I'd love to know where it is so I can come join in on the fun.
.
ps- I won some haulers 20x10-10 on Douglas wheels ,and am making some spiked tires for busco
