    I don't race, I bash at an relatively unused, but groomed, church softball field. Only in the grass in late fall and early spring, otherwise I run on the dirt/dust/mud depending on rainfall.

    I know it can be a pain but I'm here for 2 months. Nothing but sand. The only other thing I've noticed (and planned for) are extra spur gears. The sand is pretty hard on those. But I don't get...
