Saw my first Firecat this weekend up at Lewiston. I got a question. I was able to look this thing over for a while. What the heck is the ethanol switch for. Is that kinda like Polaris's switch for cheap gas. For one, that switch looks awfully cheap. The other thing was studding. I talked to the owner and he said clearance isn't the issue, like what was posted in another topic. He told me that the problem was there was only two small strips that you can get studs in and you have to get them almost perfect so you don't mess up the track. He told me the racers were running 1.5 in. studs and didn't ever hit.
