Kolt 90 tires

I removed the restrictor, and it runs a lot (10X) beter.

Now I am thinking about puting 2in taller tires on the back & put on spacers to make the back tires 3in or 5in wider. I am doing this to get more clearance.

How would this effect the handling and power?

Would this make it more or less stable?

Re: Kolt 90 tires

Adding the taller tires will have two effects.

1. Gearing- this will increase top speed, but low end power will suffer.

2. Stability- With the taller tires there will be more sidewall flex and will make the quad tip easier.

Optimally, you want the front one inch wider than the rear for handling characteristics. Also, bigger heavier tires rob Hp.
