Re: Slick Tyres

if you planning to race on the street then....slicks/semi slicks will give you better traction of the line, basically cut down on your wheel spin and therefore better launching.

Re: Slick Tyres

If you learn how to work with them then you can get of the line a bit faster.

Re: Slick Tyres

You do get semi-slicks that are street legal. But they need to be approved.
You can ask a tire dealer who makes them these days. I remember that Falcon has.
