I know there are several ways to keep the buildup down somewhat with bleeders/nitrogen etc, has anyone else heard of any other ways?
We usually get 3-4 lbs of buildup per tire with the McCreary, how much buildup does the hoosier have? Any thoughts on this would be helpful.

Jammin what's new? with the Hoosier dirt tires we gain the most of course on the RR which is as much as 5 lbs in a 30 lap race but the LR is next with about 3 and the fronts 1 each. I run 59 to 60 % rear though Hope this helps. car is working better and have put new Vipers on with a LR spring change from 150 to 200 to tighten the car a little on entry and exit. went 50# so I can for sure feel the change. first choice would be to match the RR 175. Have that set-up on the afco eliminator spares and can easily change at the track.

Thought you might like to know that we are using Argon in place of nitrogen in our asphalt Nascar South West Series late model. I have some friends that work on some Winston Cup crews, and they say that is what those guys are using. Also, we use a moisture filter/trap to remove any moisture when airing up the tires. Hope this inside info helps you out.
