Tug of war - a little fun on the lake today!

570 vs 400.

Both riders similar in weight. 400 has aggressive gators and were throwing the snow, but the stock tires on the 570 were getting better grip.

Also did a tug of war with 570sp vs 570. I thought the sp with siping in the stock tires would have done better, but even with extra weight added, the 570 with non-siped tires was doing a better job pulling.

So I was out on the lake yesterday...first day out with my new tires.

I definitely noticed less traction with my new tires than with my stock ones. I think they just dig right down to the ice where the stock ones were not aggressive enough. Took some getting used to. Doesnt help that we only had maybe an inch of snow on the ice.
