Straight line.  Straight line.  Straight line!  Of course it'll scrub if you
turn, like my F250 in 4wd.  The 1/4 mile referred to in the original
question is a drag race (see: subject line) - a straight line.  Oh, but I
see by your spelling of tyres that you are UKish.  No silly drag racing in
UK.  No ovals either (don't get that started again!)  So I guess the
original questioners intent was lost in the translation.  Took me a long
time to get used to some of these stateside conventions and I live here!

Huw again
