If those are the ones Strasburg was running on the lakester, they were good for one run each. Saw them after both the down run and the return run, they were shredded.

All tires will shred on the salt if you overpower the traction and spin them.... rough courses are prone to promote spinning when the tires are off the ground....

Yeah, a 5 mile burnout on a 40-grit course will do that!

Did they look like this?

Strasburgs ran the new goodyears and M/T on 2 separate runs both at 344 MPH. In my opinion the Goodyears looked better with blistering of the rubber on the contact area, where the Mickeys had shredded cord in several placed. I saw no cord showing on the goodyears just some weird blistering. I believe the goodyear engineer took them back for evaluation.

Treit and Davenport had the new Goodyears

that were provided directly by Goodyear.

Unfortunately they have only about one

mile on them since we broke our drive train.

As i recall there were about 4 sets of them

on the salt.  Maybe I can add some more info

soon.

I heard that private testing went way above 320.

I was also told that Goodyear used Michelin's

tire dyno. I guarantee You Treit and Davenport

would not have run the tires with a 320 MPH

rating.

Just search what I said. It's only a guide and I'm

not the one that pays the bills.

We want to Thank Goodyear for providing the

tires and we are embarrassed that we didn't

go faster than we did. So far we call every

run "testing."
