Default Tubliss with trials tire

I have been running the Tubliss system for nearly a year now. I have said it before, and I'll say it again here. Tubliss is the most cost effective, best modification I've ever done on an off road motorcycle.
Many of us know a trials tyre is a good, long lasting tire with great traction in most places. I have found with the Tubliss that any knobby is fantastic because you can run such low tire pressures. In my experience, the Dunlop MX 31 is thet best tire for my conditions, and frankly makes the trials tire unnecessary. However, I am curious and there is a local riding spot that as much as requires a trials tire. So, I bought one and mounted it up on my Tubliss equipped wheel. So, to the point.

The trials tire with 6psi worked very very very well for me this week. I took it out Wednesday in a downpour, and showed that it still doesn't work in gooey conditions, and has absolutely no braking traction in the same . However, today I went to another local riding spot, and found that it worked very well. While the braking traction is nearly nonexistent, it can be overcome with a modification of riding technique, mostly just waiting for something the tire can grab onto. The beauty of the trials tire with the Tubliss is that it works exactly the same as on a real trials bike. Trials riders often ride with as little as 2psi in their rear tire, and they can do unreal things. I was able to do crazy stuff with this tire today. Mostly over some rocks and logs, but suffice it to say that it works far better without a tube. One can actually run a low enough pressure in the trials tire without fear of pinch flat to make it work like it was designed to work.
