Re: Burnouts unecessary?

Yes burn outs are necessary. I race both of my cars in pure stock and you must run the original tire and rim size, F70-15 with an 8 inch rim and F70-14 on a 7 inch rim with polyglas tires! The burn out is critical, too hot and they get greasy and too cold and they spin. The real reason for treaded tires to stay out of the water is the water that comes off of the inner fender well. No water. Btw, I run 40lbs of air in the rear and 45 In the front, it is all about the contact patch

"SpellCheck" is also 'unnecessary' - but handy at times

1968 Convertible
Some trucks
Other V8 things - some of which float
Other V6 things - none of which float
Oh yeah, and 1 "Straight-Six" ...

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!

Re: Burnouts unecessary?

You drive around the water on street tires because the track doesn't want your big treaded tires dragging water to the starting line where it will make the slick tire cars spin. Street tires almost always get more sticky with a burnout though. Even back in my street racing days,we would put down water and burn the tire and when we backed up,you would hear the tires sticking to the road and making a suction sound. Whenever I light'em up from a stop light and then continue cruising down the road,I hear the rocks getting thrown up against the wheelwells,so it is clear that even on my regular old Pep Boys tires they get sticky with heat.

Re: Burnouts unecessary?

Jim...ya got the brass ring! Was waitin' for someone to pick up and ID that line. And it that morning footage from the movie stayed with me for a long time, eh?

Getting back to the "burn out" thread...was wondering if there's any burn out contests like there were before. I think the environ people have nixed the burn out contests to a large degree, as I haven't seen any in the eastern part of Canada. They still go motor blow ups around here, but I've only seen just the one. People freaked last year when the motor died just short of a minute! I had a ticket for a minute, ten and was gonna throw it away as I thought it was a ridiculous time. Little did I know.

I've always wondered if anybody ever notices that his name Kilgore (Kill, Gore) is appropriate for the character?

i don't know if communist would be accurate. More like frugal. Also, the Mickey Thompson tire company apparently agrees with me:
http://www.mickeythompsontires.com/s...hp?item=ETDrag

My view is that if brackets, why burn up your tires---they are not cheap. Why not just power down and/or add weight/and or run a higher gear/and or get a bigger tire until there is no spin?

It would seem more economical this way. i know racing is not cheap, but this is one area you can control.
