    It would have been nice to use a durometer on the tread as opposed to wear ratings to nail the softness down. I also wonder what treating the tires with Hot Lap or Track Claw, softening chemicals, would do. We used it in stock car racing and would see pretty big drops in hardness when using the durometer. I hated messing with the tires, but everyone was doing it and we were forced to. We'd use that blue towel on "endless" rolls, wrap the tire in the towel, soak it, then wrap the tire in Saran Wrap, then put it in a black waste bag and let it sit in the sun. We spent more time messing with tires than anything else.

    Great great video, I'm still confused on what I should buy for track use only tire for a 6 speed car making 400 rwhp, I'd have to drive to and back from the track 2 hours each way.

    OMG this is so old.. I ran those L60 Dirt Track tires on the street back in the day.. They were actually damn good for what was out back then.

    Car should have been an auto to be more accurate.. although I did bracket race successfully with a manual.. not everyone is consistent with their shifts.

    LOL! That Yenko Deuce in your last run of the day is completely out of the picture by the time you shifted into second.

    Your not supposed to have your tires deflated a bit so they grip better

    I'd like to see a drag radial test

    No need to melt the BFG radial base tire.

    See, that's why I run slicks! 14.5 x 32×15 @ 6.5 psi.  1.29 60ft at 9.26 in a 2500 lb. car.

    Your test car needs some suspension work.

    Good test on how well the tires grip the road/track surface. But i would not use ET as a determination as which tire performed better. Unless of course you use the same wheels to test each tire. Weight of the wheel increases or decreases rotational mass. Higher rotational mass is a killer of ET times an 60' times! I know several cars that have taken as much as 1.5seconds off their ET times and trap speeds of 10-12mph by simply changing wheels, but using the same tires. Not being a troll, pessimist, or a dick… just trying to help.
