Bonneville Pro used to get speeds
This is why we use wide tires. 152.5 mph in 10.2 sec on dirt.
We also had a 21/4time of 280mph and 3 mile time of 294 mph ''engine blew just before end of 3 and start of 4 mile.
All runs on gas, thats all we have ever used.
This was also top time of the meet for 2 days.
On a tune up run we were 9 mph faster in the 2nd mile traveled than the 294 mph run. BNI started timing this mile
recently and is the mile before the start of the 3-4 and 5.
Skinney tires might help us get through the marbles at El Mirage but even the high powered lakesters WITH WINGS can't hook up on a loose track.
We also get excelent were on wide tires never wearing out the wear holes our shredding them.
There is to much peer pressure for open wheel cars to try wide tires
One coming from a very fast racer that tried them on his roadster and spun out bad mouthing them ever since
but failing to mention that his rear end was found to be mounted 5/8'' out of square
He also told me his roadster had never accelerated that fast.
