Default Slicks air pressure

The best way is to watch your slicks on the edges after you have made a burn out, look at the very edge of the slick, you will have excess rubber build up where the slick is actually contacting the track. You want the excess to be on the slick edge, hope this helps, with your weight probally start out between 7-8 lbs.

I run 33x15 goodyears at about between 7-8 lbs. pretty light car with 4-link though. As far as the back end wanting to come around on the burn out if you can jack some weight in the left front that would help also. ( puts more load on the right rear )

I had 14.5x32 on a 2800lb Nova and was running 10lbs with no problem. I agree to call the manufacture though to get a rough esitmate. Then play around with it a little to get the best 60' times. Good luck and keep us informed.

Default Tire pressure

With the tires inflated to the same pressure, check the circumference of the tires to see if they are the same. They may be different and the difference in pressure may equalize the size. I ran 7.5 in my Hoosier slicks. Both were the same circumference within an eighth of an inch.

I can understand different pressures to equalize the rollout,is there a certain range the tires have to stay in?Like only a 2 pound difference or something like that?
