Neglecting the small change in rolling resistance due to extra weight on the bearings and tires


The subject is Daytona BEACH. Try to pull a handcart on sand, empty and loaded and try to keep it at a certain speed and tell me again, that the effect of weight on rolling resistance is small.

Actually, the original Andy Granatelli 300F post related to the Bonneville salt flats but I am sure that the issues are the same. As for tires, on the salt, wider is not better (yypical Bonneville tire (left) compared with performance street tire (right).):

Anyway, I wonder why they only achieved 190 mph with a blown 2x4bbl 413 822 hp monster. Richard Petty was clocked 155 mph with a NA 383 with a stock (!) intake manifold and a SINGLE stock (525-550 cfm) carter carburetor in a 60 Plymouth.

are you calling Richard Petty a liar?
