    I got strip 44 miles away from my place and was wondering if anyone runs slick on highway when they are driving to Drag/Strip.

    What's the PSI or any other information would be helpful.

    Thanks,

    Plus slicks are illegal on public roads.

    I drive on Nitto 555R all the time. My car is not a daily driver but I drive roughly 50 mile to and from my local track.

    With no side wall it would have crazy handing. Just get some drag radials.

    2 mins? Ok, maybe if you have a pit crew, to change and torgue lug nuts is no way 2 minutes, IMO;);)

    2 mins per tire for real. This helps too but i use to do it the old fashioned way. Just have a good jack. Screenshot_20160402-213441.png

    even with that no way without pit crew, how long does it take to torque each lug?

    Maybe I am just slow, who knows :D:D
