Chicken strip after trackday???
Hey all, just got back from a trackday and I noticed I have a quarter inch chicken strip on my right side. This surprised me. I'm no racer but I run A group skill level, I've never had a chicken strip on a track tire.
Anyway, there are definitely some reasons why this might make sense:
Counterclockwise track, mostly left handers.
First time running a 180/60 rear tire.
HOWEVER, I did notice that my tire alignment may have been SLIGHTLY off judging by the notch marks on the swingarm. I stress the work slight, talking MM or two. I did my own wheel install, and I struggled big time getting the rear wheel on. Still pretty new to changing my own wheels, maybe only 3rd time I've done it
Just wanted to get your guys' opinion, make sure this isn't indicative of a problem or if its just the new tire size.
