Mike, you must have spoken to the custodian if that is the tire they recommend for your TD

You sure that's a D06? Not sure how you still have teeth if it is?

That’s impossible Mikey. Every time a tire conversation comes up we get told that Hoosiers are perfect. Big Grin

Based on my experience that is the right tire for that combination. I don’t run 1/4 mile often but I know Jeffrey Barker used to run that tire on his NHRA TS ride.

I have set of 18372's that have started doing this but not nearly as bad. Hoosier just say's they don't see a safety hazard. New MT's have been installed.

We did the same thing, Same tire torque side. They gave us a new set 18700. Then we tested with a new part number coming out soon and they are Bad to the bone! Same tire was on the winning TD at Pomona...

Mike, just been my past experiences with that tire on fast dragsters and door cars. It has it's limits and a 7.0 door car is just past them IMO based on past experiences. It will go down the track but not like the 34.5 tire will. I don't know who told him to run that tire nor what the rep was told either! Good track conditions, soft hit converter etc all help too, as always its not just one thing that makes or brakes a combo!

Unfortunately they discontinued the C2055 (34.5/17), it is now a W2021. We loved that tire and were convinced to switch to the C1550s - which are the tires that won TD in Pomon - and while they were very consistent, I couldn't get the shake out of them (4.70 dragster). Have tried getting ahold of someone at Hoosier to get their opinion 6 times now and can't get anyone to call me. Last ditch effort will be to raise the top bar and take all the grip out of the car. We put Bubbas on the 4.50 car.

^^^Wrong tire for your car/ETs. The BR3 is the tire you want.

The BR3 is a great tire on a 4.40s and slower dragster.

No matter what i did with the BR3, i couldnt get the shake out at 1.02-1.04. The 4 link and Penski shock was changed a bunch. Now there are several guys that are making the newest hoosier/bubba tire working. But it was said the newest version was designed by the MT engineers that now work for Hoosier. So far the guys using them say they cannot tell a difference between the hoosier and the mickey.
