    Hey guys,
    In my neck of the woods we run into many motorsports clients, go carts, atv's, dirt bikes, snowmobiles, etc... the list goes on and on. What my biggest problem is, is cutting thick material- dirtbike guys want convex material and as thick as i can get it- but my CJV30- simply cannot cut this. Whats anyone else using?? equipment and material? thanks
