A couple of the guys saw my photo and said it looks way off??
Hoosier 29 x 10.5 W @ 2900 lbs entire combination is softened up for bracket racing.

Does this look horrible??

I switched from 10-11 when the track champion said he could see too much wheel speed.
It really hasn't felt any different, but it can't hurt to ask you guys for opinions.

I was racing alone that day, and they are dead nuts 11 PSI.

We were at the track last night and after watching a slow video I went from
12.5 psi to 14 psi. 60 foot went from 1.31 to 1.26 et and mph were improved. But we are 3,400 LBS don’t know if that helps.
What tire were you on?

I run Hoosier 29x10.5W and the lowest I go is 12.5psi. I've run every brand of 10.5 and have never gone any lower on psi. Car is 3,000lb goes mid to high 6's depending on fuel and weather and I FB and TB it. Same when the car had a 3spd and 5.13's

OK, so I went up to 12 PSI, for the big bucks event, and really didn't nptice any difference??
5.70 and the 60 foot stayed consistent.
Had a rough W/E, only won one round, so didn't get much data.

It's the Standard 10.5W, not radial.
