Drag Racing Slicks
Posted 11 June 2007 - 08:43 AM
I tried some of the Staco slicks on a 98 Firebird and they are just a little too wide. I would like to replicate a car running in one of the stock categories without narrowing the rear chassis. Any ideas?
Thanks in Advance.

Slicks for a "Stock" classified car for todays generation is tough to find. You can try some of the aftermarket companies such as Perry's resin or Compresins for something different but you may have to settle for some narrow slicks from kits from the past such as the Lindberg 64 Dodges or something like that.
One other solution that would work (and I have tried this before with success) is to take a treaded tire that fits the size you are looking for and sand off all of the tread. For example, if you can find two of the left rear racing tires from any Revell-Monogram sprint car kits and sand down the tread they will work well or if you even need to go smaller then the two front tires from any of the same kits would work as well. The front tires from a sprint car kit actually already make for good cheater slicks because they only have two or three straight tread lines in them.
Hopefully this helps you with your search.
