Ive already tested a car with them and they worked great for us. I know a good amount of the dragster boys are going over to them. Who all here runs them on a door car?
I wouldn't go with the 3191w on a fast door car, its a softer compound version of the the 3190w. I think the 3190w would be a better choice. I have the 3190w on my dragster running 6.90-7.0, approaching 200 runs on them and absolutely deadly consistent still.I am also curious about the 3191W, I am thinking of putting a set on my car. just worried about what kind of life I can expect out of them. Have they been faster than the say 33.5x17 stuff?
We tried the original Bubba (12¾" wide) with a 107" runout. Results were quite mixed over a full season. Worked well on a very tight track but not so much on a looser track. I could dead hook it & get sub 1 second 60' but had a tendency to run away if you got good wheelspeed. We went to Hoosier 34.5's and life was good ever since.
I wouldn't change a damn thing if I were as bad ass as you guys are right nowI don't know about the door cars , but I like the 3186 M/T on our dragster , works great on any track, and at 106 runs as of this last wkd , still winning races and going .986 -.990 60's …when these wear out I might be tempted to try the big bubba tire …. but have seen mixed results on other dragsters on really hot tracks so far ...
I don't know why your hating on the Lithium-Pro battery all the time.. A quick 600 dollars to refurbish and replace to a bigger unit after one season and I'm back in Business ... :smt113Qkdragster - I think your recent performance is due to the fact you took that POS LITHIUM battery out of the car. OK maybe not but I'm sticking to it - lol.
Never mentioned a company but I guess you want to throw the one you mentioned under the bus. Nice that after you spent 1500 the very next year they only charged you 600 to exchange to a bigger unit. Would not be happy with a deal like like - but in your case their products and themselves would be considered POS's to me :butthead:
For what it's worth we've been using LithiumPros batteries for several years with nothing but good service, battery life, & customer support.
