I've had goodluck with my BFG's but I was wondering what everybody thought of the new M/T's. I cut 1.6's on bald bfg's but they seem to wear down really fast. Any opinions on which one to go with?

The Drag Radial Controversy

A few months ago we mentioned that Rick Head of Innovative Turbo had taken the ultimate ET for a drag radial car: 7.66 @ 186mph. We failed to mention that he did it on Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials, and the guys at M/T begged for clarification. Why Not just for the free plug but because the M/Ts are in the middle of a battle in the drag radial marketplace that started when NMRA refused to allow M/T radials to compete in radial classes. The NMRA says Mickeys would stink up the class, basically because they are too good. Sure enough, when the PSCA on the West Coast had M/T as the spec tire, everyone went three-tenths quicker. The M/T is an evil, sticky meat.

If that's not proof enough, I dont know what is.


EDIT: Here's the second half, since it was brought up.:

The big question is, what's the point of drag radial racing? It's already esteablished that it's not for average street rubber. So who decides how sticky a drag radial is allowed to be? And, when other drag radials come to market from other bigger, more heavily funded companies, will they be allowed to race? Do sticky tires ruin the intent? Watch the controversy play out in the coming year.
