BFG KDW2s at track?
Any one ever have any luck with these tires out at the track? Whats the best way to launch them? Going to the track for the first time since mods and wondering if I have any chance getting these suckers to hook.
Planning on dropping the pressure to 22PSI and going around the water.. Gentle spin just to clean them off and see what I can do.

No such luck.. Track prep was next to nothing and I cut 2.2 60' all night long. Time for stickier tires.

There street tires, it won't benefit you at all by dropping the pressure. You'll actually lose traction because the sidewalls are stiff and it causes the center to bow up toward the rim. Next time just leave the tires at the normal PSI.

I tried them at a few different PSIs with no gain or loss.. constant 2.2s. Started at 32psi.. then 25.. then 20.. No good. At least I have a good baseline run in street trim to go by. Now to find me some BFGs or M/T drag radials
