Big tires -vs- Small tires

BIG TIRES
Nothing special just use a rim width equal to the contact patch and go racing. Only issues are if it dead hooks when no wheelie bars you may in for a ride.

SMALL TIRES
Widest bead lock rims possible for a 10.5 tire, 14" wide rims will be best. The car leaves on the side walls but MPH's faster. Has to be driven on the edge to make it down the track.
More costly than big tires to run this setup.

Every time I'm at Milan No ET at least one of those small tire cars ends up hitting the wall. This happens after the dew begins to fall in the evening. I hope that I haven't offended anyone but if I have I'm not sorry.

Yea ... ask the people running Pro Stock these days.  With their high hood height, it seems all that they did was cut-off the forward facing opening ...

Amen!!!

Truth be known this was "stir the pot" but I only run the ragged edge on the small tire car because I don't have the chassis car to ride, nor the ability yet to build it, but I will jump at the opportunity to switch to the big tire when the cards line up. In the mean time I will just try to keep my raggedy ass off the wall.

It only takes a different track prep for a small tire / radial tire down the track. I may bring my own prep to the memorial race next yr. Lol

Meh, often with super light full chassis cars the big tire/calmer initial hit/wheel speed combo is about the only workable choice cuz they don't have a ton of extra weight to work with to help hold a hard/violent suspension initial hit on a small tire without bouncing the sidewalls.

Sometimes that dreaded extra weight a SS/mini tub/back half car often has comes in handy on a small tire combo.
