I'm here Harold. I've been working long hours at work to make up for the 2 week vacation I took for the Bash. Last night was a great night with my Dad and brother. We went to a Doo Wop Show at the Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove, NJ. We saw Charlie Thomas and the Drifters, The Diamonds, Vito and The Salutations, and Emil Stucchio & The Classics. Great show!

I haven't touched my Fairlane since I took it off the trailer from Kentucky, other than readjusting the clutch. I did buy some tire bead sealant, but I need your F350 to roll over the side to break the bead. I hope to do that experiment this week, and rough sand the inside of the bead. I hope that keeps the tires from spinning on the rim. If that doesn't do it, I'm going to get slicks for the track and be done with it. I'm looking forward to the next track trip. Thanks for the thoughts Harold; you're the man!

You can use contact cement on the bead and wheel to help from spinning. Thats kind of a last resort thing when all else fails.

I hope so Travis, because I don't want to use screws on my nice steel powder coated rims and Drag Radials. We were talking about options at the Bash, and this was one some guys told me to try. At 18 psi, the tire would hook and spin on the rim (powder coated in/out), but 20+ psi the tires would spin on the track. I couldn't find that happy medium so this is the next step. I could always walk it off the line, but dumping the clutch at 3k rpm's is so much fun.
