The last tire debate

Lets put opinions into context so we can actually benchmark tire options. This first and foremost requires providing proof, and as proof the only thing I can think of is time slips.

So I'm proposing that we compile a list of,
60' (provide pics)
Tire
Suspension
LSD
Trans



Here are my (cherry picked) slips from this year so far.

Tire: 255/35-18 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500
Koni FSD / Eibach Sportline (pn 2150-4036)
MFactory Helical 3.46
Auto w/ XHP stg III

Straight line performance is only a minor aspect of tires though, g force limit and 'feel' up to that point, and after, are possibly more significant to many.

I do agree. But again, data is what is needed. Singular lap times won't cut it, driver can change line, brake zone, acceleration, etc.
If they have an average of times, better. But G Force (type) data would be best. Just not something most have, and I don't think we can easily view/log the data from the car.

So I went with something easy that most all of us do at some point, drag race.
