    I always found dirt hawgs ok as an all round tyre, but not great for track racing. Soft Proline tyres are good, I don't know if Fuzzy-Ts are still avail, but they're awesome.

    Hey I'm sure everyone's done it at one time or another (including myself), to satisfy their curiosity.

    What I'm trying to say, however, is that top speed on-road isn't the be-all and end-all !
