DOT Slicks

Postby cosmo22nov » Fri Mar 27, 2009 12:49 pm

so i was wondering, do DOT slicks count as a street tire or slick? i am just wondering if i would have to run in the 1/8 mile or if i could run the 1/4?

thanks,

The difference between running 1/8th or 1/4 is not the tires. It's the E.T. How fast is you ride ?

i just though if you ran slicks you were required to run the 1/8th.... all ive ever raced was the test n tunes.

The break is 12.00 for 1/4 . If you run faster we will let Bob do a wheelie on your head !!! :thumbsup:

If you'll donate the money to build a bridge over the canyon at the end of the track, they'll jump right on it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is a new rule. So if a car runs faster than 12.00 you are now limited to 1/8 mile on TnT nights?
