Re: Fast Farm Truck

Here's another video. Notice the screws going through to the bead of the slicks. We tried doing that once but didn't work so well.

I work with a motorhead who has only 2 vehicles that develop less than 700 horses, his service van and his motorcycle... and he's seriously eying the motorcycle. If you're developing that much horse, let me know and I'll see how he's keeping from spinning off his tires. Recently his biggest thrill has been truck pulls and off road.

Re: Fast Farm Truck

" Notice the screws going through to the bead of the slicks" Is that the screws on the outer rim ? What's the idea with that ? To stop tyre coming off ? Can imagine some young turk sitting in their hot car at a stop and looking down at that old truck in disdain before getting blasted away .

Re: Fast Farm Truck

Using slicks, the air pressure is so low and they bite the pavement so hard, the rim will sometimes spin on the tire, that's why they screw them into the bead.
