It looks hard packed, doesnt look like it will neccessarily "blue groove", also being dirt vs clay, I would stay with something that has a little more lug.

You could also try a Green splitter(rears only offered) for if it does ever groove up to med/high bite. But I don't know on those specific conditions how they would react.
Hi Brandon..

Sorry... i should have said what car i will be using..I will be using my 8ight E 3.0 and SCTE 2.0 on the smaller track. Same dirt type

Yes, removing 1/4 of the overall width of a rear 2wd buggy foam, and stuffing it into a front 2wd buggy tire.

For 1/8 Buggy, I'd try Hybrids and Stackers.

For 4WD SCT, Double Dee's and 3D's.

Correct because rear tires are bigger than fronts on a 2wd buggy.

I'm looking to buy the SC inserts that come with Barcodes gold. All I can find are these and they say firm. http://www.jconcepts.net/store/index...roducts_id=468

Does JC sell a medium or soft CC insert?

Yes. For the temperature range you specified, Blue compound should work well. For low 70's, you would probably want to use Super Soft (Green) for best performance.

General rule of thumb is...

Colder Temps = Softer Tires
Higher Temps = Harder Tires

That is because JC is hoarding them for major races that are coming up. It is good business practice to release a tire, then have none available anywhere, for months...
