View Full Version : Drag Tyres
My commodore has a 5.7lt engine, 3500 converter and a 3.36LSD.
What size slicks wouled be best to run.I know a 26in tyre is probably best but my concern is that they may be too tall with a 3.36 diff.Mickey thompson make a 22.4in slick.Wouled these be any good?
In drag racing, height is more important than width. You will need at least the 26 inch tyre mentioned, or preferably the 28.
Unfortunately I think you will find that the 28 won't fit.....
Can running slicks ruin diffs?
I've heard of people blowing their diffs by running slicks (latest HPI magazine some guy in a supra has done it :().
How do slicks affect 4WD systems? Can they bugger up the front and rear diffs together?
