i "heard" that the tires they tested recently were starting to come apart after 12 to 15 laps. ya, it's a new tire from the hoosiers we run on our wissota ( i've got six nights on my rr a-40 and have 5/32 tread left, new is 9/32 and it still durometers at 52) but i don't think you can take this tire and just put it on your imca "setup" and go. i've talked to a couple different chassis builders from up here and the cars they have in imca run a whole different setup than they do in wissota. it's gonna be a learning curve for everone especially since the imca tire is not exactly like the wissota tire. jmho, john
