    I think in this case when the load went off the rear slicks, the load transferred onto the front tires which got traction and swerved. The radials are better grip with the sidewalls for turns, thus when getting the load transferred the radial sidewall grabbed and caused the car to swerve alittle. After that its tough to regain unless you really know what you are doing.
    This is all correct, also, bias-ply actually expands and changes shape after the burnout and down the strip and you just don't want to mix them with radials.

    Some guys say they get away with it. But then some other guys run into the wall...

    Let's just try to make sure the crap stays over there and we keep this for the right people.

    There are going to be people like that but who cares. I don't find him anywhere near as retarded as that hpfrob guy though. How many douches have BMW's? Or Mercedes? Or Porsches? Or Toyotas? You can find one in anything. Point is we have a good community, let them have their heads up their asses.

    Mixing street radials with slicks or bias ply tires has been a big no-no for decades. I imagine this was simply a lack of experience on the drivers part. I'm pretty sure that was the main issue. From the video it is pretty clear it had to do with weight transfer.

    That is another good point, some of the guys running stiffer suspensions definitely don't have setups conducive to weight transfer.

    Yes, but I think you almost lost it on a shift due to traction, right? Yours was due to street tires just not having enough traction for the power. Glad you saved it though... it can happen to anyone.

    yeah, very different reason, but car has similar results! I had the nitto 555R tires on rear. Very scary going head on into a wall. I dont really get what happened above, was reading...I dont know anything about drag tires and mixing them

    Well, you were running radials. The problem for you is that you didn't get enough heat into the radial.

    Taza explained the mixing pretty well.

    Way above everything else, Chris is a brilliant business man. If he can stroke a customer's bruised ego into a turbo upgrade and sell a few $3K LSD kits in the process -- he will...


    Will a stronger LSD help? Sure. It'll help prevent the sudden loss of one side's camber thrust and toe caused by one tire spinning (as well as the moment created by unequal forward thrust). But it won't prevent Bias sway, nor will it help when you get out of the groove...

    IMO, its better to learn those skills before upgrading because now you've made a faster car that will stay straight longer before getting loose and a driver still unprepared to handle the consequences...

    I will give Chris brilliant business man status when he muzzles a few of his more vocal supporters. Click here to enlarge But other then that, like pretty much everything you post I agree with you completely.

    This issue was not one created by the diff. Nor would a different diff save him, he already had an LSD and really an open diff once pretty much works the same way on the strip once it has traction.

    The owner probably thinks that since the car needs to be repaired might as well get an upgrade while at it. The car was not setup properly for the strip. Drag tires alone do not make a car set up for the strip, more to it than that.

    Hey he tried! You'll never see me at the strip. I could careless about proving $#@! to the few Internet haters. Vbox and runs is as far as I go.

    It isn't about proving anything bro, it is just about going out and having a blast in a controlled environment. Once you make a pass you will be hooked!

    Guy isn't a hypnotist or a magician of some kind as that is what it would take.

    One his major fanboys HPFMTRE actually threatened physical violence over PM's (emotional much?) because I said his car would lose on pump vs. a Gintani SC DCT M3 on stock internals like mine. He and all the fanboys started insulting me instead of actually debating the topic. Later, his overconfidence got to him and he raced an SC DCT M3 on pump and lost... when I called him on it, I was put in timeout. Kids like him with the HPF kits (I assume this forcefed fellow is another early 20's child?) are part of the problem as that is the fanatics demographic. They are just brats who want to proclaim they have the best due to insecurity.

    Note, that is only a small fraction of the HPF owners as we seem to have gathered all the ones who are true enthusiasts and left the kids to their playground. This is working out quite well.

    Exactly, if this happened at the strip imagine what would happen if he tried this out on the public streets?

    1/4 mile passes are a lot of fun and tell you a lot about your car (and yourself).

    I hear you, Vbox runs are safer/easier anyway.

    The strip is challenging though and a lot of fun. The most important thing is to enjoy your car however you want to, but part of that for me is proving internet haters wrong Click here to enlarge

    Yes, bias-ply skinnies are what you want as they give you better stability so you don't hit the wall...
