Just wondering if anyone on this forum has tried out the new M/T 275 radial ? I understand it now has a DOT certification.

I met up with Guy Lomack from TC at Holly Springs, MS for some TNT Sunday. Guy's got a super nice 72 Chevelle that looks and runs great. We had a great time hanging out and drag racing. Guy is a super nice person also. What a nice facility Holly Springs is and super nice folks that run it and own it! The DA hovered around 500' most of the day with a little bit of headwind. Great day for some new PB's.

I knew things were going go well when the car rips off a 5.93 right off the trailer. With some tweaking of shocks front and rear, some timing loops and jetting loops I ended the night with all new best incrementals a few passes later.

The new MT 275 Pro is everything it's cracked up to be. I dead hooked 8 of 11 passes. The only times it spun others were spinning also due to steet cars and bikes. When that happened, the track workers sprayed and redragged and we were right back in business. Here are a couple of videos from today of my Camaro.

Best Pass of the day
20 lbs in the radials
596' DA, 60 degrees, 29.61 pressure, 39.7% humidity
1.284
3.739
5.858 @ 115.12

I also had a 1.278 60 foot on one pass but it only netted a 5.91.

Passes of day 5.93, 5.92, 5.88, 5.85, 5.90, 5.89, spun, spun, 5.91, spun, 5.89

60 foots
1.2918
1.2918
1.2885
1.2890
1.2854
1.2840
spun
spun
1.2781
spun
1.2964


When it spun, others were spinning also due to too many street cars and bikes. The track workers then reprepped and we were right back in business.

Impressions: The tires work!
