I did have Lakewoods on mine and they were working well. I took them back off because I bought Caltracs but haven't installed them yet. With the Lakewoods be sure to install them with the plastic snubber directly under the front spring eye. You may need to adjust the gap until they work like you want. I had to purchase longer bolts than what my Lakewoods came with. I still have the overload springs and the bolts they supplied just weren't long enough.

If traction is a problem, you can always use 4-Hi.

Anthony, you are going to like the Crazy Spartan. I've got a Stage III VB and haven't installed it. Lazy I guess, but the old girl runs so good I haven't messed with it. A 650 rpm idle does well with mine and 2800 TC launches great. Good luck...
