do a burnout, gain some Hp!

proofz!!!1 :

http://www.sportrider.com/tech/146_0...yno/index.html

apparantly a new fresh tire is slightly heavier than a worn tire, and it can make a noticable difference on the dyno...

if anyone wants to "upgrade" i got some take-offs at the shop with steel belts showing!

...and here i thought all those dudes coming in with shinkos almost worn through were being dumb...silly me they must be geniuses.... i hope they never read this article.

interesting read though. tire type and wear can make a big difference on Hp, but tire pressure has little/no effect.
