Who is the main trackside or mail order supplier for Dunlop slicks on the East coast?
Are you sure? I thought he was Bridgestone only?
Stickboy sold me Dunlops last year.
Stick used to be exclusively Bridgestone, but is a dual vendor now. Of course, we all know the best tires he sells are Bridgestone...
He's the Dunlop rep for the southeast and other places but still does Bridgestone too.
That I did not know.
Guessing you missed the Bridgestone and Michelin years too huh?
Yes, we went from Bridgestone only. To Bridgestone and Michelin, and now we sell Bridgestone and Dunlop.
Avon or Heidenau for this bloke.
We sold Heidenau a little, and looked into Avon. One had much older dates that bothered us. The other shipped everything out of country, so there wasn’t going to be product support for us
we now have Bridgestones, with newer technology than both of those, in 18” vintage sizes that are working well for us. We’re winning races and championships. They also pay contingency in all classes with both orgs.
I spoke to you quite a bit about tyres at AHRMA races last season and I know the full race ones are good. Unfortunately Bridgestone didn't have race compound rubber in the sizes I use at the time 3.00 x 18 and 3.50 x 18, do they now?
We don’t have the rest of the CR11 tires yet. The ones we brought in to fill the gap are working way better than we expected. The other brands haven’t been updated in a while. Our have new compounds that work really well in this application.
Yep, 1:49 around Barber on a 160 Honda is something.
