Response to O/T..rejuvenating drag slicks?
If you get 3 years partial use out of a set, that's real, real good. I just tossed a set of Pro Stock slicks off the back of the dragster - Goodyear Eagles, $360 a pop at Summit. Sitting 4 years from the previous owner, didn't even try them. Sidewalls cracked, etc. I have recently switched from Mickey to Hoosier and I really like the tires, no problems. I get a better 60' in the door cars out of a 275-60x15 Hooiser drag radial than a 28" 3055 MT Drag. The dragster is running one year old used 31 x 15.5W Hoosers I bought from a friend and it sticks every pass.
I never got more than 2 years, maybe 200 passes out of a set of Mickeys.
Sometimes a good hard burnout will "wake up" a pair of older slicks. You can try the PJ-1 (VHT) as suggested above after a good heat. Other than that, they are scrap. DO NOT think about bringing anything like "pimp juice" to the line with you, many tracks will throw you out.
