I run a Wissota mod with Hoosier Dirt Bozz (A40) tires. On July 1 our track is going to a new tire rule requiring the mods to run a Hard Bozz (H40) on the right rear. Does anyone have any experience running the Hard Bozz on just the right year and if so, do any changes need to be made to your set up?

Also, Wissota announced that they are switching from the Dirt Bozz to the E-Mod tread design. As soon as the inventory of Dirt Bozz tires is gone, thats it. How do the E-Mods compare to the Dirt Bozz tires? Are they similar in size?

FYI: Harris chassis, 3 Link, 12.5:1 358

shouldnt have to make any chassis changes, it'll just take a couple more laps for the heat to build up enough to hook the tire up

Hey Marty,
Ron here, I have the mod at home now, Hey on those tires, watch it on restarts, when those tires cool off a bit they don't hook up as well on the restart as they may have been b4 the restart

we run the hard bozz on the right at our track only because a dirt won't last 20 laps here( well maybe but it is wore out) like he said watch the restarts, keep them warm on the yellows. as for the new tread design only 2 weeks on them here( we dont have any yet) but the guys who do say they will be better on the dry slick but worse on a tacky track. if you run through a wet spot they don't clean out as fast as the old design so watch that also, they'll buzz longer and quicker. so if you run a tacky track i might stock up on the old design and have an advantage for a while.

I've got probably 200 laps on the new tires. The take a bit to keep them clean, little more air and try to "spin" the tire when it is tacky. As far as a hard bozz goes, I love them, just keep them warm, sipe them if you are allowed, recovers the heat quicker, also gives the tread a little more flex.
