So the drivability won't come into play as much. The SCORE Baja Sur 500, the SCORE Baja 500 and the SCORE Baja 1000 is where we will see the advantages. You can push harder and the tires are more precise; they have less push. I am able to tip toe around rocks a lot better. They will be a great addition to the team.
