    drag racing on hard packed dirt

    i have a 1000 ninja which i have placed my 450r rear end under, i would like to know what the guys who have fast drag quads use for rear tires on hard packed dirt, i have a set of stock 450 rear tires with 3/16 carriage bolts for studs, it spins alot, and i see other guys just run 4snow tires and they do decent , mainly i would like to see what worked for other guys wiht higher horsepower quads before i sink more money in to it, thanks jeff

    where ever there are trails, or races
    i drag race my yfz on clay which is hard packed. for it i run turf tamers. if its real hard packed like clay then you want something with the most surface area(like turf tamers).
