12-02-2004, 10:16 AM
I did not hear from anyone yesterday so here's the tire and rules. An amendment will be written up and published on the CASC-OR website.
The street stud series tire will be a Hankook W401 and W403.
They will contain a 3mm carbide street stud.
You will be allowed to purchase 6 tires max per season.
You are not allowed to tractionize the tire in any way period or disfigure them.
The tires are $95 plus tax studded.
You can only buy them from Tire Craft call Jeff Wenzel at 905.760.1130.
Tires will be recorded so no buying extra.
Call Jeff for sizing. He has some W401's in stock and will be getting more. The Hankook W403's will also be available.
If you want to go racing street stud this is it. Jeff will be more than accomodating for us for this series.

Jeff needs to know right away what sizes everyone needs. Please call him right away. We are getting close.

Just talked to Jeff, I don't think the stud size is right.
We were looking at a 3mm protrusion, but a number 12 stud hardly sticks out of the tire.

I said 3mm and I thought it was a #12 but if not it's whatever is a 3mm carbide button stud.
12-03-2004, 09:54 AM
Just confirmned with Jeff the #12 is 3mm and it will be the same for everyone.

i believe that the #12 is the "stock" stud for the tire.
To be at the 3MM mark i think we need to use a #13.

That's what I was trying to get accross ...
12-03-2004, 04:20 PM
#12 are 3 mm. Everyone will run these. They have been ordered.
12-03-2004, 06:08 PM
well at least one order has officially gone in!

Stud size is a # 15. Jeff advises this is the best stud for our application. All tires will be studded with this.
To all street studders, keep in mind that street studded tires are no way near regular studs. If you need to know what they look like go to your local arena and look at the tires on the Zamboni. These are what you'll be racing on and so will everyone else in this class.

Just ordered my tires.. Jeff indicated that I was the eighth person to order. Should be fun. :)
What cars are people running in this class? I've got a civic..
12-09-2004, 07:18 PM
I've got a Hummer.
:D :D :D

Zamboni ... Now there's a thought, 4wd and resurfacing capabilities at the same time!

I don't want this to be construed as negative, however, I had a look at some of the tires the other day for the SSC.
Those babies stick way out and although I'm not an engineer, I'd have to say a lot of those studs are gonna be ripped right out of those tires.....with relative ease.....I'd be a little concerned.
I do hope I'm wrong by the way..TD

with a #15. they are going to stick out prolly a 1/4 inch.
Dave...do you know if Jeff is glueing the studs in the tire?
12-14-2004, 06:25 PM
Oh oh! ...DOH! ... :eek:
12-14-2004, 06:41 PM
yes Jeff is gluing the studs in. he also mentioned to me the glue acts as a lubricant and makes it easier to install.
12-14-2004, 06:43 PM
What type of glue Graham??
12-14-2004, 07:17 PM
That's top secret Andy!

Who gave Dalton permission to enter the tire building lab????????????
12-14-2004, 08:11 PM
Ahh, it was by remote surveillence.
We're very crafty.......BTW, your guys rock in the back there Jeffy.
They had me in and out in about half hour.
And I'm not trying to stir the pot, I think it's a great idea, I think it will work. However, it may be fraught with some teething problems, as a lot of new ventures so often do.
Just an opinion, as I said before, I hope I'm wrong.....
If anyone can make it work, mr wenzel, he da man!

Just for that you are now annointed as the Stud Retriever. As the Official SR you must go out after every SSC race and collect the studs that have come out. Then by searching on the code of each errent stud retrive the tire number it came from. Then you find th car that the tire is on and inform the driver that you have found him a stud.
:D :D :D

How about a deposit of 5 cents per stud? maybe there will be a lineup for the stud retreiver job:D
