The 811A Special Edition is the newest offering from Track. Both the core and coverstock are new. Track used a new additive that gives the 811A Special Edition a massive motion when it sees the hook.

This type of reaction is what we like to see on our medium test pattern. On this pattern, even Stroker saw a skid/snap type movement which is a rarity for someone with a low rev rate. Tweener and Cranker saw the same, only more because of their styles. The 811A Special Edition stores an unbelievable amount of energy for the breakpoint and back end. As the oil carried down, it slowed the 811A
