What type of grooving is better on a dry/slick track? Would a checkerboard style with lots of grooves be better since there are more edges to bite into the surface or would less grooves be better to put more of the tire tread to the surface? Thanks.

You didnt say what tire your running, But my opinion the more grooves and sipes you put in a tire the more gripping edges you have and the softer the tire gets and like outlaw said if your running a pretty hard tire sipe the crap out of it....Towman

Sorry, forgot to mention the tires are Hoosier Asphalt pull-offs. They're a pretty hard tire.

Ive ran the 60s 63s and the replacement for them I think was like a 1045 or something like that and for a dryslick tire I used a pretty good sized block pattern in the middle and really siped the outside blocks for a little extra side bite hope this helps.....Towman
