Drove to and from Chicago on Wednesday, on the way home to a drive 20 miles south of I-94 to Beecher IL to FRP racing and picked up a set of correctly sized ice tires. So may give it a proper try on Sunday. Jeff at FRP has nice/hard to find shop if you ever have an hour or so to drop by, this time of year he was quite well stocked with ice tires. Here is his story

You have to page down a bit to get his history

Thanks for having me and my daughter out Bruno. It was great to see everyone ripping out on the ice.

Thanks for the riding today Bruno. Had a blast out there again!

Tore the 400 down, it was a loose crank nut. Going to check the stator side tomorrow and pickup some new gaskets, keyways, etc and get it buttoned back up.

What a great time riding and hanging out with friends. Doesn't get any better than that.

Matt, your pictures are outstanding. Thanks for taking and sharing them !

Jon, good news on your 400. Sounds like you'll have it back to good in no time.
