Looks good! Just what I have in mind. I'll try not cutting it off first and see how it is. Larger pins will be easy and a must and hollowing it out...will look just like that tip. Hopefully it works well or I'll get the tip with shark teeth!

How do y'all find the need to use the back brake? With as strong as the regen brake is, if I even think of touching the pedal, the rear tire locks up. So skid steer use only... For scrubbing speed off, it's regen and front brake as required, even on steep hills. Is this just a track use thing?
If you are not using the rear brake, you are not braking fast enough. The bike doesn't have enough engine braking to warrant not using the rear brake.

Usually i'll completely lock up the rear wheel and "rear steer" the bike into a rut or corner while modulating the front brake. If you pay close attention to the pros, they do it often as well. It depends on the corner though. If the corner is fast i won't use the rear brake at all.

So this is a MX track thing... For woods riding, I am certain that I am breaking fast enough, if not I would be doing a lot of tree hugging. Since I have never ridden MX track, I am doubtlessly watching the pros do other things besides breaking for corners.
