    I don't think so, Smitty...

    I bought them from Kurt K at the 2009 Shootout and I'm pretty sure he bought them used too. I can't find the discussion we had about these particular slicks....David N knew the history prior to Kurt's and my ownership of them though....lol

    Probably lost in the archives of Facebook.

    I think we had determined they were over 10 years old in 2014. But like I said, they're really not bad....I could spin them, so I figured they needed replaced, but I can spin the new 28" Hoosiers too...I now blame my launch rather than the actual tires after trying some different "moves". They're in good shape - not dried out....I've been saving them for Danielle to use.

    For the record, I bought them new. I'm not sure if I can figure out when, but I will try. I do know that when I went to a 27" tall tire, my car responded well. The 26" tire was too short for the loose converter that I have--or at least that's what I thought the problem was.

    edit: According to my old webpage, I first used the slicks on January 22, 2000.

    That's funny. 17 year old slicks. If that doesn't fit the bill for this car nothing will. I wonder. If they're that old they may have already been on the car. It seems most of the car parts that came out of St Louis have been at one time or another lol

    It is funny you mention this Ira. I assure you those slicks were already on that car. Chris came to my house shortly after I bought it and borrowed them. It took me several months to get them back, but not before Chris took them on an adventure documented with pictures. "Mick the Slick" was a classic on the original TBU and nobody has been able to come up with the pictures to resurrect it.

    You're so right! So make sure you bring a set of 28" slicks for me so I won't have to beg Danielle to borrow hers

    For the record I didn't tell you to toss them. I ran an 11.90 and broke your transmission and an axle last time they saw track time.

    I understand all that, and you are confusing your comments from last winter/spring with what I said, circa right after the Shoot Out. So I was not ever talking about what you said, but of our friend from Tennessee, who was nice enough to pull the tires off the car at the end of the day at the Shoot Out. Now this was after I went sideways twice on my last run of the day, and at that time it was pretty obvious that there was no rubber left on the tires.
