I had a friend with an Anglia and MT Sportsmans, SCARY!!
If someone had some organizational skills it would sure be cool to get some informal cruise-ins together this winter.

My previous tires were MT Sportsmans, and they didn't hook up in wet or dry conditions. I could smoke them forever if I wanted to keep my foot in the throttle, and 1st-2nd shifts were scarey! The short wheelbase Austin would jump sideways on a 1-2 shift, and get completely out of control.
I still have them on my '71 Camaro, but the longer wheelbase makes it more driveable under power, but they still don't hook up.

|59RAMBLERSUPERWAGON||Yeah a lot of the year round Rodders run the mickey thompsons for their great rain traction and their track function.|

It was in the high 40's at the time, and miserable with no wipers on my gasser! But had to try and see what happened when I got off the freeway and stopped at a light. They hooked much better than I expected and the little car got moving with very little tire spin.

|xxllmm4||I guess you could call me a fair weather rodder also, Drag radials with rain and cold DO NOT MIX its like driving on ice, seriously. I might get another set of rims so I can mount some all seasons on it|

Well I'm up north in Portland area with Badrat, and I too am one of those fair weather drivers. I probably put more miles on my hotrods each year than most people put on their regular cars, but I do have a couple that don't see much rain if I can avoid it!
And I don't own a car trailer. I do borrow one when I race my street legal gasser occasionally.

It is Oregon people, if you don't drive your car because it might rain, your only gona have 5 or 6 days out of the year to drive,,, enclosed trailer queens. Haha.
Says the poor bastard who can't afford a car worth garaging.
