Re: Tubes for Drag Slicks
Older slicks like natural rubber tubes. I tried radial/synthetic tubes and they did not work.
When installing the tube and starting to fill, try not to have the tube foldover. Try to keep it flat about its outer circumference. Removing the core will help seat the tube before final filling.
Lube the rim & bead with silicone grease as it will make break down at the track to repair a tube much easier.
Having an experienced person replace the tubes, if you chose not to do it, is the key. I learned on my first one, you don't let a national chain store fix the flat/tube. I came back to pick it up and it had 80 PSI. Needless to say, the tube was toast. The high pressure gave the slick, a used one, tiny splits in the tread area.
Balance is important. You can feel a 1/4 ounce difference.
