wasn't too sure where to put this thread but this may be the right spot...

I'm going to the track this sunday (www.mpdragway.com)-car wars
& the only thing left I can think of is my tires..

I can take off slow & they spin when I floor it,they spun on the track the last couple of times I went,wasn't too big of a deal...but....

if I was to buy some cheapo goodyear tires,would it help out any?
would it bother that its a bit more weight?
would it be worth it? & would it kind of give me better traction?

I know some of them questions can only be answered if you seen my tires,
but their in pretty good shape,have about 50-60% thread left..but..
I was just wondering if I was to get me a quick little set of tires would it help out on the spin problem?

heres my month old timeslip:

reaction: .310
I1: 2.399
I2: 6.697
I3: 10.276
MPH (I3) 68.295
I4: .000

E.T. 15.988
MPH: 84.633

any help would be appreciated on anything about what could help me out at the tracks this weekend,

I have been running a ram intake,this time it will be cold intake,
(both maybe-depending on time)
retard timing a bit
racing seats-(1 seat this time)
lightweight a couple of things
(((& I was thinking of getting some new tires to help me get some grip.)))

(I'm only going to the races with some friends & brothers to have a little fun-last time that 15.9 got me 3rd place in all-motor (4/6 cyl.) won 50$...lol

thanks for any help & sorry for the long post,

oops.srry, I have a set of stock 13" rims,

Grip... well yea you can get some new treds

bf Goodwrench g-sport tires

There like $66 each for 15's. They are sweet and hook up nice. Just get 2 for the front tires, and roll with your other ones on the back.

I read a while back that putting winter tires on the front helped increase traction for drag racing. Find some 195-225 mm wide winter tires used somewhere for cheap and use those...

NOTE - I READ THIS IN AN IMPORT MAGAZINE. I HAVE NEVER TRIED IT PERSONALLY...

Sounds like a rwd trick. Skinny tires with high pressure on the non-drive wheels to reduce role resistance.
