    First time running on anything but street tires in 47 years on and off the track. I think I will start at 20 and see how it feels. Thanks for all the feedback!

    The ManHs are very soft sidewall for a radial,..they can be a little "twitchy" just keep wheel movement at a minimum and you'll be good.

    The MT Dr's are little more stable imo,..but man the ManHs hook!,..they are doing great on my 850hp Zl1 camaro

    Should they take a break in period to really start working. My three passes with lowering the pressure each time still did not seem to hook at all. No better then my regular TA radials.

    Were they smoking during the burnout? If so,. You are getting them greasy,..ie too much heat

    Don't go below 18lbs

    Even my slicks i need a few good burn outs to start then each tiMe out 1 decent in tt......then it only requires minor from there.

    I start in 1st shift into 2nd about 5300, bring it back up to about 5300 and a few seconds later when they start to grab the rons pull down about 1000 i know I'm good to go and let it slide out and lift just b4 hook.

    Don't be in the water.....drive beyond when the tracks end.....if if drug way out you need to clear it by a little........ifvthe water is short.....just barely beyound it. Having someone there helps this alot
