If you dead hook the car it would literally stop the engine! So, you need to watch the 60ft times and adjust your package accordingly. I don't really know too many people that can watch the tires and count revolutions anyway!

Thanks for your question,
Carl
Thanks for the response Carl. I suppose there is no real answer to my question then... just keep trying different things and watching the incrementals??

Is there a chance of making a 28"/29" tall drag radial for a 17" rim.

Yes Richard - you get the point...
You are correct in saying that there is no real answer because the variables are so many. Just let the car tell you what it wants...
It's all there - just reflect on the data and you will figure it out.

Thanks again,
Carl

Anything is possible, but there needs to be a significant demand for a specific tire size before we can invest in the development and associated costs. You know how it is today...
We must have a good business case before we initiate any new products!

Thanks for your question!
Carl
