Tires and quarter mile
How much of a difference are bald tires gonna make in the quarter? Obviously I just want a guesstimate. Also how much do your times improve with dr's?

I have 1/8's to compare sorry but thats all you get there aren't enough sea level tracks open on so cal anymore.


best 1/8 on street tires 9.2

best 1/8 on drs 8.8

best mph on street tires 78.0

best mph on dr's 79.97

best 60' on street tires 2.13

best 60 on dr's 2.007

The biggest difference...
best 330' on street tires 6.1
best 330' on dr's 5.7


and on a side note, dr's dont do squat if you dont know how to take advantage of the added traction. it'll take at least 2-3 track days to get the hang of it. at first you'll either bog, or get over excited and spin out.

this might sound stupid. but arent slikss usally nice and smooth w/no tread. when your street tires are balding out wont they be smooth too. so my question is, wont bald tires make good track tires? yea prolly a retard question, but o well

wow, that was good for a laugh.

the actual rubber compound used to makes slicks is different then a street tire. so no, I'll you'll do is spin all day long.

bad idea to go to the track on bald tires.

When i first got the turbo i went on street tires and was getting 2.3-2.4 60 fts of course thats at qualcomm which is notorious for bad traction as it is. But for comparison after i got the dr's on i was running 2.0-2.1 60 fts at qualcomm.
