      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

New ITP Tundracross tires, SS312 Rims and BajaCross tires.

Recommended Posts

2009 TUNDRACROSS IS THE INDUSTRY’S FIRST STUDDED TIRE

ITPTundracross.jpg

The all-new TundraCross features nearly 100 carbide-tipped steel case studs that are strategically placed for maximum performance on ice and snow. The TundraCross is based on ITP’s highly successful TerraCross R/T XD design, and features fully sipped (thinly cut) lugs, which result in more traction-grabbing edges and maximum traction in loose, slippery conditions.

Its 6-ply bias construction is light in weight and offers excellent flotation to keep the tire “on top” of the snow. A proven Rim Guard keeps snow and ice out of the bead area and protects the wheel lip. The TundraCross debuts in two sizes: 25x9-12 and 25x10-12.

I am intersted in the ITP SS312's when I purchase my new machine.

THE SS312 IS ANOTHER IMPRESSIVE ADDITION TO ITP’s SS ALLOY WHEEL LINE

ITPSS312Mach2_s.jpg

All new for 2009, the SS312 joins the proven SS Alloy line as one of the strongest, lightest and best looking one-piece aluminum wheels on the market today! The SS312 features a stealthy matte black finish with bright, diamond-cut machined accents topped with a tough clear-coat.

The heavy-duty 12-inch ATV wheel rated at 700 pounds, while the 14-inch side-by-side UTV applications are rated at 800 pounds! The SS312 carries a lifetime structural warranty: if you bend or break it, we will replace it! Buy with confidence! Built using ITP’s exclusive Advancecast process to exacting QS 9000 quality specifications. A custom SS wheel cap featuring an all-new design is included. Sizing is 12x7, 14x6 and 14x8, for precise front/rear fitment.

ALL-NEW BAJACROSS IS ITP’s TOUGHEST TIRE EVER

ITP-BajaCross_s.jpg

For 2009, ITP is proud to introduce its most rugged tire ever, the all-new BajaCross. This tire is Baja proven to handle the toughest and heaviest UTV applications, and it performs impressively on 4x4 and utility ATVs as well. An 8-ply rating and 25% stronger construction has resulted in a high level of durability. Our extended-life rubber compound and innovative overlapping tread pattern provides a smooth, predictable ride as well as slow wear characteristics — this is the highest-mileage tire ITP has ever produced! Stepped lugs provide consistent tread edges as the tire wears, for predictable performance throughout the long life of the tire. Wraparound lugs provide improved shoulder protection, while a super deep Rim Guard feature offers the best wheel lip protection in the business. Despite its strength, the BajaCross’s advanced carcass design delivers the most comfortable, trail-compliant ride available. Now available in four sizes: 25x8R-12, 25x10R-12, 26x10R-14, 26x11R-14.

Finally someone comes out with a tire that will offer good snow traction and comes pre-studded for the ice.

will save a lot of time having to stud them yourself

although it has far less # of studs that what you normally see, i wonder if it is just where they are located and that they are carbide-tipped steel they last alot longer so you dont need as many

ITP's been busy these days. They're coming out with some 15" rims and tires too. I know the rims were 212's and the tire is called the Ultra Cross Radial. They also are coming out with a whole new line of rims called System 6. Maxxis has the bighorn 2.0 in 15" sizes and the vision rims in 15". They also have a fully camo tire and wheel. I think the tire was a zilla, not sure on the rim. A different HSOforum I saw had a bunch of photos from the dealer show. GBC also introduced a few new tires.

    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer
