Minimum front wheel and tyre width of 7mm

 

TREATMENT OF REAR TYRES WITH CHEMICALS OR OILS IS STRICKLY PROHIBITED

 

Hi Dave, just some clarification required on these 2 rules.

Is the Min 7mm width relate to the contact part of the tire to the track or the overall width of the tire?

 

The no treatment rule - does that then preclude using Fuelite or turps to do a final polish after truing the tires?

just the overall width for front tyre filing or coning is allowed

 

I will allow polishing the tires but treating to change the compound of the tire

Oh that's new to me David didn't think anything was allowed apart from gluing and truing , is that one of the reasons Orakeis cars always seem to be very competative , he's using fuelite and turps all the time seem to remember someone else mentioning something about this in the can am not to sure but thought Rossko bought this up some time ago.

all the fuelite does is give the tire a smoother finish

it doesn't treat the tire at all

 

it is done by putting a small amount on a rag and giving the tire a quick wipe while it is spinning on the truer

 

treating changes the compound of the tire making it softer/squishy giving the tire more grip and making the car more responsive

that is not allowed in this proxy or even recommended for several reasons

 

1 - if treated tires have any pressure on them while packaged or sitting on their tires while at the track

they will get a flat spot very quickly

 

2 - if any work needs to be done on a tire during the proxy that will be hard to do

 

just to name a couple

You guys can use as much Fuelite or turps as you like but please remove my entry from the grid.

See where Wobble is coming from , i only asked the question because i didn't know any treatment was allowed to the tyres at any time , i don't use any liquid form of prep on my tyres only give them a rub over with a damp cloth, but on seeing Orakeis thread thought as it was being allowed would join them but thinking again to late in the day for me to stachanging my principals so like Wobble on principle i am joining him in removing my car
