Racing Tires


Recommended Posts

Just as with everything, the more you read a book the more you see.

 

For most the basic front-rear weight distribution is 40/60. In Twist 2 pg.6 I'm reading "...for racing and real GP machines carry more rear rubber, changing bias (possibly as much as 30/70...)... acceleration coming out of turns."

 

What does "more rubber" mean??? Is the tire profile different -in such a way to increase the contact patch; a wider or taller tire; or, something else? As the dvd demonstrates, bigger tire = can handle more. Just wondering how or what the difference is (it's kind of intriguing).

More Rubber= Bigger tire.
