In general tyres manufactured outside eu don\'t have a emark on.
When vehicle go through sva for european type apporval an e mark is not needed as long as the tyres has load rating and speed rating then they are deem road legal and meet european type approval. If it has only of these then a letter from manufacturer is need confirming that they tyre meets european standards. Obviously it must also have normal tread depth and width etc.

The local tire man near me said that to be road legal they require a tread wear marker

Updated, I assume you wanted your 12.6 time as your official entry :)

Donato still hangs onto the 60ft lead, but you have the 1/4 mile time and top speed.

It has occurred to me that a "Date" and "Venue" would be useful information so if you\'ve got it, post the details.

Its odd, I had a 13.70 second at 110.12mph on the same day with a 2.564 60ft !

Trouble was it was all done on normal uk road tyres, potenza p5\'s, 255 at the standard 32psi :eek. So isn\'t too bad !

I have only voiced my opinion, and as Im not in it, its for you guys to make your minds up as to what rules you want.
In the times that I have run, I have never run on slicks, mainly because my aim was to see how fast my street car was, and as I will never race a farrari or poker on slicks, Ive never seen the point, if I was playing with the unlimited, mods & power brigade I naturally would want all the help I could get. I have found it far more important to learn how to drive your car, than simply bolt on all the goodies. As this is a non tuner-limited budget bit of fun, just go out and play with the car you have and increase the power and mods as you improve your times. Like a gradual learning process.

Its just like golf, or skiing. Get the best gear and play like crap, as it takes a certain amount of expertise to use the equipment.
Jump in a top fuel dragcar, and when you fail with a miserable time, you wont know what to pin point it on, there will be so many factors. Start with a stock car and as you learn to feel for the car, you will know were your strenghts and weaknesses are, and you can build on that, until you are using that top fueler properly.
