More contact surface for better grip mostly.

You could also drop a couple pounds of pressure in your current tire to get a similar effect.

Re: removing rear brakes

Removing the rear brake is not only illegal for drag racing, its also extremely stupid and dangerous. You wont pass tech, and if you are heavily using the front brakes to slow down on a drag strip, you are a moron on borrowed time before you slide the front and tuck it. Call Darwin's awards people before you go any further.

Re: removing rear brakes

And your estimation of time drops for mods is fcuking laughable dude. Tenths for gearing is wrong, as is for a quick shifter. An air shifter MAYBE is good for 2 tenths. Maybe.

And you dont even fcuking need a wide tire. If you cant lay 9s on a modded bike being the smurf sized motherfcuker that you are, on a 180 tire, you need a rider mod. Ideally you want the tallest, lightest tire you can run without giving up too much gearing.

And you should be crossing at the top of 6th, not forth.

And before you get lippy, my bike goes 9s.... all fcuking motor, and mostly stock motor at that. I have lots of bolt ons and weight mods. and thats in the high 130s.

Taking off safety parts, even if your shitty track allows it, is god damned dumb.

sorry about that, looking back on it i think it was pretty dumb on my part. i was really pissed because my flight got cancelled due to the plane being in the maintenence hangar and wasnt thinking clearly. (I'm a very impulsive person)

"And you should be crossing at the top of 6th, not forth."

I know that, but I also ride on the highway and don't want to be switching my gearing every week.
