Re: Drag Radials

First burn out on a new set, make it Force style.

After that I would normally hit them hard, shift almost immediately to high gear putting some high wheel speed in to them for about 4-5 seconds stationary then roll out spinning them letting off just in time to get on the brakes to prestage.

That netted me a 1.35 60' with my little 150 N20 hit dead out of the hole.

Re: Drag Radials

Well as good as the new engine acts, revs better pulls harder.

An 11.8xx and or a 1.5x would be a victory.

Then it's time to spray it. Big(er) ring gaps should be fun.
