My track tires are old Mickey Thompson ET Streets I've had for 8 years now, but always garaged, attached to the house.

I don't drive the car much. Nathan put these tires on it when he had it. They are pretty much junk now.

Even my camaro i didn't drive it much on the drag pak. The 18s with r compounds was my favorite form for that car. Just way more fun.

The % of try has to match the result.
It helps bandaid hurt feels when cars with massive power run **** times. It's science.
Bahahahaha okay Mr Timing error. Your turd actually ran high 12s. Your races against a stock 5br0 prove this.

^^^^^lol....that's jd. He's local to here. He looked at the notch a few weeks ago.

That's not working pretty good soslo. That r compound tire area. A 555r can easily do 1.7 60s behind a stick. You're just not stressing them to know their limits.

We are talking about the street here. I agree the MT should be better at the track.

I mean let's be honest here though MT's need heat to stick so on the street on a cold pull the nitto is going to crush it. Get em hot

I always heat up a DR before a launch aside from what brand it is. 555r like heat too. Brand aside, OP needs a 28" tire.

Talked to nathan last night. We deemed the Mickey's on the notch was 8+ yrs old.

i really need to swap the bias tires i bought for the camaro to the notch. But i either need to buy a tire machine or spend $80+
