Right now we run Moroso DS-2 Front Drag Tire 26.0'' x 4.5'' - 15''. We have 849 runs on them. Would I gain anything by going to the 28" tire. The rears are 28x11.50x15 and 29.5x9x15.

Do that and you'll likely screw up Jake's reaction times. If those were working, why would you want to change?

Just a thought. I didn't think about RT though. Good point. That's why I ask the questions. :-s Thanks

Steve,

I run the 28's only for more roll out distance so when I am a little early on the tree, I have a nano inch or two as a cushion, but I have had these from day one so I am adj. to them, and my brake, now, if I could get my thumb to work with the other two :- =;

From what I have red, and seen, many use different sizes for different reasons. I figured that if I can get that much more out of the gate than the other guy, that I already have the advantage on him provided I cut a good light, and so far, so good for me anyway. A smaller tire will have less roll out of the beams, hence a quicker rt.

Thanks John. Jake is real comfortable with the 26's after 4 seasons with these tires and is a killer on the tree. So using kens adage if it ain't broke don't try to fix it. =;

About 6 more weeks \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
