I want to say something here about this. With our Front Engine Dragsters very few are the same. We have some with 1000 Hp and weighs 1350 with driver. We have others that flex like crazy and some that do not.  It would be very hard to say one tire works better than another on our cars with so many variables.

With the Rear Engine Four link Dragsters they are all very close in weight, suspension chassis stiffness most of them even paint them the same with tribal swirl paint jobs. It is not hard to get a good tire for one of those and you can adjust the chassis some if they do not work.

With our front engine dragsters each is a different animal and hard to say exactly what will work on it.
