    I am having trouble keeping from scalping (with the anti scalp rollers while turning), and/or rubbing the ground raw with the tires while turning. I can slow down and prevent this, but most of the problem occurs in soft or moist ground. Any tips?:confused:

    Do not spin -- Do a K or a Y turn. Always keep both tires turning. even if in different directions

    Just read my answer-- KY always helps form tearing things up:laugh:

    That's good:laugh: Thanks! I will give it a try. I have turf tires, but they are still agressive.
