Joe For the longest time,conventional wisdom said:spinning leads to more wear.Until McCoy came about & shattered the decades long "engineering myth".Search for the answer: turned out that McCoy being very light,the tire could not hook up & spin.Instead of heating up,it cooled down-which was why McCoy used a softer compound & finish. Butas JB said..while watching Hayden slide the left side at the "ring" in 06..."Hayden is having a good time sliding the left side..we shall see at the end of the race..." Lucky(as usual)for Hayden,the race was red flagged...The fact is,sliding does lead to greater wear(though not all conditions)& more fuel consumption (proven studies of the obvious).
