Stroked Lightning is getting a few new parts to go faster with.

Would you do this to your brand new wheels

Is this your way to hold a beed so you can air down the tires?

bead locked wheels dont let the wheel spin inside of tire under really hard acceleration there for putting all power to the ground making a harder launch if you dont burn the tires!!! :lol:

Yes I will be running the tires at about 9-12 psi and they are screws put right into the bead of the tire. This is a poormans beadlock , drag racers have been doing it for years.
