    My setup is a TG bike with 10" tire and mine works great after 1 race and a call to MTC.

    I will make several comments/observations:
    -Talk to Kevin at MTC, he knows the baseline setup for your setup.
    -Make sure your tire pressure and wheelie bar setup are correct for that tire.
    I ran a small tire many years ago but these new tires are different so I would defer to someone familiar with the Reactor tire.
    Otherwise I would be surprised that you are blowing the tire away.
    If your were Budds Creek, MD it would be tough to spin the wheel at a MIROCK race.

    Do not give up, once you have the setup right you will be thrilled with it.

    6 pounds is still too low. You shouldn't need to run less than 7 psi. Ray.

    How much do you weigh? As Ray said, 6 is too low and I'm betting you need to be more around 7.75 to 8.5, my thoughts are you're cupping the tire, it's getting up on it's edges, thus your spin.. get the pressure up and get some contact patch. I crew for a guy with a 1500 cc small tire slider setup and we run 8.75. He weighs about 180.
