Default CS27's and Heat....not a problem!

At the Reedy Race 2 years ago the track got to 140 and we had no over heating problems.

At the 2003 On Onroad Nats the track got to over 160 with no problems.

Every late summer Florida State Series Race (www.fseara.org) is held in near 100 degree weather with the track at or over 160 and we never have problems with the CS27's.

Other brands of tires wear out fast, blister or slow way down in the heat. Take Off just don't seem to be like that. They have very broad heat ranges.

Are there any tips to make sure the 27's do not over heat? Do you put extra holes in the rims or any other tricks? The take off 27 premount is the spec tire at my local track in Mod sedan and will be attending the Nats this summer and any help would be great.

YOu Can't do much to the Qualifying And Race Tires because It cant be unmounted etc. I don't think theres any tips on keeping these from over heating, but i could be wrong.

I understand about the unmounting not being a posibility. But wondered if putting a vent hole or two in the rim helps or any particular traction compound that is used in hot temps like the ones talked about at the preworlds. I think a premount tire can really bring the fun back to sedan racing and would never want to monkey with unmounting them...lol

Thanks

Jeff

Jeff - You aren't allowed to modify CS27GL's in any way. There are small vent holes in the rim but you cannot expand them.

You don't have to do anything special in the heat. For traction compound most guys use Paragon Ground FX or FX2...Zip Grip is good too. They use traction compound no mater how hot or cold the track temp is.
