Track prep

Track prep
After reading another mshs post on Facebook, I began to wonder has any mshs racer ever seen good track prep? Seems like anytime their cars don't hook it's a prep issue. I listened about track prep at CF last year while watching a top alcohol dragster carry the front wheels for 50' on the same prep?
Funny thing you suggest maybe it's their car and they are instantly insulted. You ask some simple questions like what was the track temp versus tire temp, what was their tire psi pre and post burn out and they look at you like you are speaking a foreign language.
You ask them about what suspension mods they are running and you get the same dumb look, or I got 90/10s up front.
Don't even think about asking them if they run different tires for different conditions or is their weight transfer is working, their heads would explode.
I guess it's just bad prep if you can't run a 700hp car with stock suspension, 3 year old drag radials with a 100 passes and hook LMAO

RE: Track prep
No just every time I see these guys post, they whine about track prep. I just have yet to have hooking issues that I did not cause and needed to correct. I know most of them sold their Toyota camary and bought a charger in 2007 but shit get your fucking car right and quit crying

RE: Track prep
I only had a problem once. Remember the in car vid of me almost flipping. Well they ended up closing the track after a bike crashed after me. Other than that, its always comical to listen to everyone complain about track prep. Especially the guys that don't even know how to air their tires. You are supposed to know your car and adjust it to track conditions because no two tracks are the same.

RE: Track prep
Yep that's what I was saying Mike. I used to travel quite a bit and depending on temp, humidity, prep and other factors. You had to switch to different slicks, adjust the shocks or 4 link.

RE: Track prep
After running on tracks like vmp, norwalk, mir, atco, darlington, rockingham......yeah.....track prep makes a huge difference. Especially running radials. I'll whine about it every time. If I have to put a slick on the car to be consistent on a shit track we'll lose 3 tenths compared to the radial.

Maybe Phil should show up and show us how Smile

RE: Track prep
Phil showed everybody how that's why all 6 speed cars started using slicks Laugh.
Plus if people would rather have 3/10s extra over being consistent and winning I can't help them anyway LMAO
