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.
Most of the time we just use the stock foam with DD's. However, there have been times when we have used the Dirt Tech inserts and they give a little more fwd traction, but have less side bite.

More recently outdoor we have been running Hybrids with stock foam and they have been really good

Our outdoor tracks are hard packed orange clay treated with calcium. In the morning the track holds a lot of moisture and is EXTREMELY slick. The best tire combo has been Hybrid rears (stock foam) and reflex fronts (dirt tech foam) both in green compound. We use the clear/gold FDJ sauce 10-15mins before our heat.

In those outdoor conditions and the temps at 90 deg plus what compound do you recommend?

On carpet, people generally favor open cell foams on buggy. I went out on a limb and assumed the included inserts work well, so that's what I glued them up with. Let you know in two weeks how it goes

Oh, I glued them with the thick texture row on the outside, as we have way too much side bite. I think that's the right way to do it to decrease side bite.

any thoughts on making a front 2wd double dee?

The proline holeshot front works really well out here in comparison to the ribbed style fronts.

Try the reflexes on the front! I really like these as an option

I glued my first set the other way...with the thin strip on the outside, and my buggy was almost undriveable after 2 heat races. I pulled them off and reglued them the other way around and after 2 race days they're still hooked up

We the racers have been asking for them the last 6 years, but it just never happened. So at this point, I don't see it ever happening.

As Adam mentioned, the reflex fronts work really well.

Stock insert is recommended.

No plans for a D216 body.
