I got my best 60' times on street tires.
I got my worst 60' times on drag radials.

The car handles awesome on street tires.
The car handles like a wet noodle with drag radials on the back.

So, my unpleasant experience allowed me the joy of tossing them into a dumpster.:buhbye:

no-i'm trying anything at this point to get some traction at our track.the one i alway's complain about.dirt track up wind of the launch pad.
it's just such a pain to get my car off the ground,i don't want to be changing tire's at the track.(i would have to tow a trailer with jack's and wood block's:laughing: ).
so i was curious how they were for daily driving.

i never thought about it,but the drag-radial's might have weaker side wall's than other tire's,so maybe they flex when cornering?creating the noodle effect.that ain't good,because i do some mid -nite cornering now and again:laughing:

Your track isn't prepped well. You'll have the same problem with drag radials.

You need to go the cheaper route.... go to your racing store and buy a 5 gallon bucket of VHT (which they should be spraying on the track). Roll it on your tires with a paint roller, let it sit for a few minutes. You'll then hook wonderfully... and everyone will be jealous.
