@babyPuke, I was riding 165s when we did this together:

Our 1st man, Carleton, did a blazing acceleration out of t2 and Paul (2nd man) was gapped, but not as bad as last year. By the line, it was probably 5 lengths so not a total disaster, but definitely not ideal. I didn't freak out and just rested on his wheel, nearly skimming his tire. He faded a bit, but gradually, and I readied, backing off out of t4 and rolling on through the straight.

OK...maybe I'm making your point.

But, my bigger point is that we should experiment. I got even faster using 172.5s... I swear (in all seriousness...I really did)...then BAM...allergies and on-track dizzy spells.
