Maybe the track too? Never driven Buckmore tbh so can't compare it to Bayford or other places. Looks like there is a fair amount of high speed corners at Buckmore?
I done all day at buckmore on sports & had no issues with my ribs?
It is a demanding track but them extra sticky tyres make it harder.
Also they are a c*** to pop when putting air in 😅 some times they don't go on 1st time

Fair play mate! I'm defo intrigued to try them :giggle:

I find with the sports the fronts pop on first go and the rears sometimes take a few attempts. I only have a small compressor tank though :cry:

Yeah course had to swap to a p1 rib tech though, the bengio didn't like me any more.
Honestly I think they are TOO grippy don't think we should run them tbh
Still less grip than a mojo d5

Enjoyed the Maxxis Greens, keen to test them at Bayford. Agree on being sore after 3 days straight though.

Iv heard nothing but good things about the tyre mostly that it held pace well..no drop off.
I think if your used to a proper tyre like the mojo your physically be fine... but if all you know is the sport I can understand how a grippy tyre would leave a driver hurting.
