Question Tire Pressure at the drag strip?

I have been ask by some people why I dont lower the tire pressure for better traction at the drag strip, can anyone shed some light on this situation? I didnt think it would matter in a radial. What pressure are some of you using at the drag strip.

Default Re: Tire Pressure at the drag strip?

lowering pressure IS very useful on radials...on two wheel drive cars.

most AWD cars don't have enough power to break all the tires loose that much. therefore its usually best to keep normal pressures, as you get less rolling resistance.
