the tail end smashing down and scraping is definitely hard on the car.

wrinkle-wall drag tires are designed to do that.

Yep, designed to wrinkle, and often called wrinkle wall tires. They're also run at very low pressure - 8 - 14 psi. Tires without radial walls (bias ply) spread out over the road when you underinflate them. Back in the '60's, muscle car owners would take advantage of this, and drop the pressure in the rear to improve straight line traction. Radial tires actually have a smaller contact patch when you under or overinflate them, reducing traction. Over inflated, they become rounded like a motorcycle tire. Underinflated, they become cupped.

damn wnen they came crashing down you could hear the money being thrown out the side windows.

I never said anywhere that drag cars don't need to warm up their tires before a run. Maybe you should read it more carefully.

hmm anonymity on the net is great isn't it.
