I have them both drilled the same, and both at the same out of box finish, and the FireRoad changes direction harder, but rolls, compared to the CrossRoad that has more of a hard arch with continuation. Pin over ring, cg on grip line, no hole(5"pin x 5.5" cg). The more oil up front, the more the FireRoad wants to change direction. The less oil, the quicker it slows down and smooths out. I will be posting my full review sometime next week.
