Dude remove all the wax from your board and go ride any thing other than super freezing crud or ice and see what happens. If it barely makes only a mili sec. difference, why do you even bother waxing. If you speak the truth I'm over waxing. When a base is bone dry not only it will not move on sticky pow. It will stop you cold over the handle bars
. A base is built to be used with wax. It's pores absorb wax. From the start I said all the tech on a board is important but you guys wanted to discount wax and I think that's wrong.
And your argument with the 150 waxed or 160 unwaxed, 150 all day on variable snow.. There are a lot of things that make the board fast but that lube called wax between the snow and the board, that's what makes it a rocket on almost any snow when done right.
