Okay, so I am hung on the new black and silver compounds and need help with compound choice from someone who has tried them.

I have always run either gold or SS, but am having trouble with them at a new track. This track has a wet clay surface, slicks are hooking up, but gold barcodes no longer have any traction if they have any tread.

Any suggestions on what compound to try? Going to be running dirt webs and barcodes.

^ Green or black compounds.

Dirtwebs front, Bar/brocode rears; or DW all around should be a good place to start.

However, I have seen track surfaces like that sometimes only like slicks. In that case, use the green compound.

Just raced on a track really similar to what you described. Dirtwebs front/barcodes rear were good; as were slicks. The latter you just have to try to find out.

I typically run 1/10 indoor. I always wanted a tire more linear and aggressive than the barcode... Dirtwebs provide that

It will not be a Finnisher body, but from what I understand it will be as close to release as possible.

They are coming out with a brand new design/line for 1/10 bodies.

I know it's not going to happen, but...

Oh, and as long as I'm pleading, how about some rulux with 12mm hexes?

Cab forward bodies have proven to aid in the aerodynamics on these super high bite tracks of today. Not going with a cab forward design would probably be a step backwards, tbh.

They don't make bodies just for looks, but as improvements, much like all of the components offered. Function > Form.

I know. That's why I know it won't happen. But that doesn't mean I have to like it.
I would GREATLY prefer to have a cab rear body & neat, well designed front wing. This is a perfect exmple of what I'm talking about:

p.s. if anybody ever started importing these I'd be very interested in one

I have always run either gold or SS, but am having trouble with a new track I am running on. It is a clay surface that is about 3-4yrs old, new tires have no traction. They have put diesel (), cal mag and sugar beat juice in the clay and they have decided to start running it wet. Slicks are hooking up, but gold barcodes no longer have any traction if they have tread.

Any suggestions on what compound to try? They typically run ions in front and subs in rear... (but now slicks). Going to be running dirt webs and barcodes.
If you are talking about Addiction RC, I have always ran gold as well with great results, on the super wet track a few weeks ago, my barcodes did not hookup like usual, so I tried gold pressure points and they performed very well. I have some new gold dirt webs to try out this weekend. I am thinking they will be good for that surface. I have never been a fan of slicks!! I have not tried silver or black yet, but what I have heard about the new silver is good just a tad bit softer than gold but it breaks in faster.

I am hoping the dirt webs will be the answer. They should perform similar to Pro-Line IONS. Might have to try out some silvers, they would break-in quicker which is a plus.

Man i would love if you guys came out with a Soft or Clay compound 2wd Staduim truck Flip out tires ! I been running the Green Flip out tires on a carpet track on the Rear end.

And they work great and last a decent amount of time with a firmer tire insert . And still work fine with the with the middle tread worn down.

These dirt webs are the real deal. Turned quite a few heads to boot. Better get a steady supply of these to all hobby shops In Sacramento and the Bay Area
