Street Studs for 2013 ...
I presume with the mild winter and very abrasive track conditions this past season, that many, if not all, of the street stud racers are left with a pile of used if not useless tires that will be turned in for discount pricing, sometime before next season.
Therefore, I would like to propose a change to the street stud tire build, and post this poll, to gauge interest.
I would think that the SS series would be a lot fairer, if all the tires used the proper stud in them, that is a #13 stud where a #13 should be, instead of drilling the tire, not that they are drilled anymore, and placing a #15 in it's place. All the tires will remain Hankook iPikes.
In this way we would accomplish two things. Everyone would be on a tire that is more reliable and still afford the user with slightly better traction than RTI. And, Track wear would not be an issue in a season like the last where we actually hit dirt without the Menard classes running.
This also would fall in line with my proposal to revamp our thinking with regard to full competition studs, should the Menard tire go the way of the DoDo ... in the 2014 season.
Ice Racing will always be a Black art! So ... In order to finish first, ... first you must Finish!
