yes, I picked up .08 in my 60fts, but the most important thing was my car was more consistent.. get a set..do these really work better for stick cars? what are your experiences? i ran some last year but am trying non stiff this year and am wondering what to expect.
the name basically tells you the diff in that and the reg slick. A stickcar will hit the tires harder than a auto, and you want the SS to absorb the shock. Try em out.........THEY WORKso basically what's the advantage to a stiff sidewall slick? is it just more consistent with a stick shift car (what i have) and more stable on the big end? i only run 1/8 mile so dunno if the last part would benefit me much at all.
Yes they are an awesome tire!RealStreetMustangs.com - Home of NMRA Real Street Racer Bruce Hemminger
Here is an article about the Mickey Thompson Tires 26 x 10 stiff sidewall that I wrote back in 2007 when I tested them for Mickey Thompson. The stiff sidewall 26 x 10 tire is for real. I have been as quick as 1.231 60ft with this tire. It is awesome little tire!!!!
Especially if you are running a stickshift car. The stiff sidewall tire will be a great tire for you.
I see slot of stick cars like the stiff sidewall, but why doesn't a regular slick absorb the hit better. My thought is it would winkle more, never understood this. Or is it when the softer tire gets back into shape that is the problem?the name basically tells you the diff in that and the reg slick.
