Anyone have a link to the best flapper disk?
I resurface the tires that we ran every week. If we are at a big show I will at times resurface after coming off the track If we will be needing to run them tires again that day or the next day.How do you decide when its time to refinish the tires? Do you do it to deal with feathering? Other indications its time?
When the tire becomes glazy looking ...that is when the pours seal off and the tire looses grip....surfacing tires brings out the new rubber and scuffs off dead rubber...which will bring back surface grip...it will also help keep the tire from feathering as much...so if you run on hard biteing tracks where tire feathering is a problem...do it lightly each week...or some do it each time off track..all depends what your tracks do to your tires where you race at...there isn't a 100% right or wrong answer to many tire questions...experience and time is key to doing tires correctly in all areas....get with experienced guys at your track...most will help you along....the less grip the track has the courser the grit can be used...the higher the bite the finer you go....60/80 to me with light touch is faster and simpler...and works in almost every dirt condition out there....How do you decide when its time to refinish the tires? Do you do it to deal with feathering? Other indications its time?
