    M/T Drag Radial's are the

    chitsss!

    I honstly hated on these tires since they are not forgiving to people like me who cant launch on Drag Radial's! Well, I was running on M/T ET Street till I almost lost control of the car and every since then, I have ran on these DR's...Normally the sway on the ET Street never troubled me one bit, but when there is so much dirt & possible water on the track, travelling around 80mph is freaky!

    1st run I did get wheel hop...but not major...after that, these tires are sweet!

    Well I hear the ET Streets get a little squirrelly when the pressure is run below 14 PSI, but other than that I look forward to something with a little more sidewall flex.

    You never ran on them before?

    I used up about 12 or 14 sets of them on the Mach1...naturally Mach1 doesn't haul butt in the MPH, so it wasn't noticeable at all...even with sway bar completely off the car. Ran them as low as 10psi before.

    The Termee was a different story though...just carefull not to give the steering too much input. You are going to feel it, but you can get used to it / Seems like road racers cant over come that feeling.

    Did M/H have soft sidewalls like M/T?

    I hear that Drag Slicks are even more freaky!
