It was a lot of fun. That was the first time on the ice with screws so I still have a lot to learn. I was alot faster on the raptor than the bike, because the bike is so unsettling. I hoe to hit it up again this Saturday. I want to get a long straight stretch plowed out so I can do some super long wheelies. There was one section that I did nto get a video of where I could get keep it at 10 o'clock for about 200 feet or so.

ok, yeah it worked, those are on my buddys bill balance yfz, and i loved them, i'm sure the ones from the inside are better, it took a while to get used to, on powdery snow on the river they didn't work that great,but ice only they were awesome, took a bit to get used to but i was whipping it side ways when i wanted once i got used to it and could wheelie for days.. i might add them to my stock tires next year after i get me some holeshots

I think you've found something that actually is worse than sheetmetal screws...

I have only two words for anyone going out to play on the ice:

KOLD KUTTERS

hey maddog would it make a real difference with those cheng shins and the studs, or would it be just as good with stock tires and the studs

the 1000 pack looks like the way to go, how many would you suggest in each tire? or per row i guess, do you have a pic of your set up by any chance?
here is a pattern i seen on cheng shin tire/rim package

If you're just playing don't worry about getting special tires, but putting the screws in a designated set of tires will keep your summer tires in better shape.

Patterns can vary quite a bit depending on tire size, rider and bike weights, suspension setup, track size, etc, etc, etc. If you're doing stock tires it's pretty self explanatory, throw a couple in each knob. If you're studding cheng shins you can use all kinds of patterns. The one they suggest is a good one, but to keep the price down on screw costs you can just run one per knob.

I used the gold screws made specifically for the ice. They seem to work ok. I put them in my bike too. I need a few more because I want to get more bite in the front end to go faster around the oval. Right now the whole quad slides sideways in a really controllable manner, but it slides too much to the outside of the corner. I put them in the stock tires and ti kinda sucked because of the ridge on the edge of each knob. I might get some cheng shins once these are ruined.
