This time around, we’ll look at factors other than construction that are inherent in drag radials.
Given the passage of time and the advances in rubber, we figured it was high time to re-investigate the world of drag radials.
Justin Banner breaks down two cars with identical setups, the only difference? Their rear tires.
In the last issue, we took an involved look at the business end of the car – the tires. And we devoted that space specifically drag radials. But what about the front of the car?
