    MT had Bracket drag radials, Pro drag radials and 275/60 Pro drag radial.

    All three have different compounds. Which one hooks the best?(not concerned with wear)

    I know the PRO 275 works well but I would rather run 28x10.5 PRO Bracket but not sure if it hooks as well.

    (I got DQd at a 10.00 race for having 11.5 tires)

    I dont think there is 1 fit it all answer to this. I think it will depend on your setup.

    Have a buddy that ran 28x10.5 pro brackets, runs just as fast on the slicks, and is slightly more consistent on the slicks.

    But alot of fadt cars are running the 275 and the pro brackets.

    Might need to call my, and talk and get their recommendation

    Thinking about giving the radials a try. They dont wad up as much and might help my RT.

    If you prefer a slick I would bet you'd be happy with the PBR.

    I just ran back to back yesterday, first on the 275 Pro and then on the 10.5x29.5 PBR. Went 5.29 both runs with slightly more MPH on the taller tire.

    Every once in a while a given car won't like a radial and give the owner fits. The majority love them. They last longer and in some cases perform better than a bias tire.

    The pro bracket is more consistent on all tracks.
    If its a radial prep the radial is better.

    I have zero complaints about the pro bracket and have been running it for years.
    I will have a set of the hoosier radial slick for sale cheap at b.g.if you want to try them.
    Only reason I took them off is you can't run them in Cecil 10.0 index because its a 30 by 10.5

    I was told by both hoosier and mt. That radial tires dont recover as well as bias slicks. So if they spin,it could result in a totally aborted run,

    Not really sure what is truly the difference between 275 pro and pro bracket radials are

    Yeah, I've turned a slick and just weave a bit and then shift higher to make up the lost et. I think you're right the radial wouldn't recover.....but I'd like to try them again.
    Ran some early MTs and only hooked 3 of 5 runs but tracks are better prepped now....
    I bet it changes reaction time right? Might screw me up with them on only one car....
