Has anyone run stickier tires on legends or thunder roadsters and run them hard?

Does the engine starve and go bang?

Rob,
Several guys in the southeast have run slicks on the roadsters and legends without any problems. the SE Spec Thunder Roadster Series specs the "stock " Hoosier tire so no Raodsters are running slicks but the legends guys are.

Thanks Darrel,

Any idea what size and compound tires they are using? We talking a real racing slick, or like a hoosier R6 or any of the other R compound radials?

I'm curious if a 205/50/15 will work or will be too short. I think there is a taller R6, but it is pricier.

Rob,
I don't know size but they were a Hooosier slick and I'm not sure about the compound.
