2nd vote no to tubes i don't care who ran tubes back in the day we have better tires and rims now the rims was the problem back in the day thats why they ran tubes.If you run low air pressure with tubes you better use baby powder to keep the tire from taring up the tube.Run good rims and you want have a problem with your tires plus have you priced tubes lately,almost the price of a new tire or atleast half.

Yes we ran tubes back in the day, but we ran racing tires with very thin sidewalls. The tubes were very thick too. We also put screws into the wheels so that the wheel wouldn't spin inside the tire and cut the valve stem of the tube off. I don't remember the last time I ran with tubes. Just remember on dry slick to try to get into the corner straight. not with the rear end hung out. Also get back on the throttle really easy and be sure you have lots of travel on the accelerator pedal so its easier to feather the throttle. Sure wish I was able to race, I sure miss the driving part.

I was trying anything to try to hook up. Have been running tubeless, switched to tubes and that didn't help any either. Gonna have to cut half of the boys size 14 foot off and put a govenor on the car I guess. Yank 2 wires off to keep him from busting loose.
Thanks for all the input. Good to hear from you Aubrey.
