Do most people like super soft Double Dees for outdoor loose conditions that don't blue groove up on Stadium Trucks? I'm liking them but just wondering if anything else works better?

There are 2 stadium truck tires I take to every outdoor track, double and flipouts. The 3D is also a great option tire!

What conditions do you like flip outs in? 3Ds haven't been doing much for me past practice when it's wet and really loose still.

When the track is fluffier and more loose stuff on top especially when wet. If my double Dee isn't the best, the flipouts are!

Has anyone tried green or black bar codes on a stadium truck on a dusty loose track ?

The green do ok as long as there is a decent amount of clay in the track and it's packed in.

No clay at all. Just loose dirt

In conditions where you like flipouts rears, would you also lean towards Carver fronts? Usually when the double dees are hooking up I also run double dees up front. Curious about when it's softer or when there is a film of dust on the track.

Yes, typically I run carver fronts. Double Dee is always a good front tire option!

They are going through production now, so it should be pretty soon.

when you run double dees on loose conditions for 1/10 2wd buggies, are you running with a molded insert (if so which one) or are you just using the stock foam?

I ran at a track recently that if we didn't get rained out I was going to try flipouts next that i had mounted up versus the proline blockades in m4 I was using.

The surface was moist, somewhat loose but I think it was because with the dirt blown off their is a mixture of dirt and small rocks.

The track was treated with calcium chloride as well.
