ROCKOMOTIF, Tangerang – Indonesian manufacturer of original car tires, Accelerate launched a semi-slick car tire at the event that can be used for the Toyota Fortuner and Toyota Kijang Innova The elite show 2023 at ICE, BSD City, Tangerang, Sunday (5/2/2023). Actually PT Elangperdana Tire Industry, as a manufacturer of Accelerate tires, is targeting the endurance racing segment which is starting to recover in Indonesia.
However, the Accelera 651 Sport Drag tires are only available in size 255/50 R18, suitable for Fortuner and also Innova. Drag race is a racing event on a straight track where whoever crosses the finish line will be the winner.
For this reason, the role of the tires in this competitive event is very important, because they convey the engine power generated and transmitted to the rotation of the tire without losing traction.
According to Koko Jatmiko, R&D Manager of PT Elangperdana Tire Industry, if the tires as a means of connecting to the road do not have good traction capabilities, then the power generated by the engine will be wasted, because the slip caused by the tires cannot transfer the power directly. of the engine to the rotation of the tyre.
“For this reason, with Super Grip Compound technology developed by PT Elangperdana Tire Industry team engineer, Accelera introduced the 651 Sport Drag specifically for Drag Race competition,” Koko said at the launch.
Koko added that the development of tires for endurance has been long enough to produce tires with stable and good grip and traction from the beginning to the end of the tyre’s use. “So that 651 Sport Drag can surely be relied upon by Drag Race lovers and racers in Indonesia and abroad.”
Another advantage of the Accelera Sport Drag tires is also the selling price which is cheaper than the competitors in its category. According to Koko, it can be up to half the competitor’s price for 2 tyres.
