No matter how much i wanted to, it just didnt feel safe to keep it up for very long even on mostly flat spots...just reporting back. i will admit there is some merit to the idea that it is faster flat based
I honestly feel better doing it on steep areas than flat areas, I also feel way more confident flatbasing my supermodel (RIP) which is camber.
I'm not a fan of flat basing on the Evo either.

I feel like It's faster in most conditions as well, aside from slushly snow... IMO
