    Default Side bite

    A few years ago, a national driver told me he liked the rr to slide 3-4 feet then stop. He said thats when his car ran the best!

    Whats yalls opinion?

    It doesn't have to slide at all when the front turns the car.
    Droop isn't the problem.

    it really funny how straight these cars are being driven in the slick, makes you think maybe an asphalt setup may work in the slick

    I havenít been around asphalt cars in many years. Iím curious how different the dynamic wheel load numbers really are? They certainly get there with completely different methods, but what do the final numbers look like in comparison? Iím curious.

    I went to a MLRA event last week and the winner drove the car turning left most of the time. I'm sure the RR was bald a baby's butt but he also won against the top three blowing RR tires. 5 RR's didn't make it at all.

    Running a fast lap and winning a race are two completely different animals. Do you think his rr tire would have survived 25-50+ laps of that
