Default SC Tire help

Hey guys im looking for some suggestions on SC tires. My local track has a kinda wierd surface. Its clay like but doesnt groove. Its always dusty and slick. The hot tire for 2whl buggy is ribs/Ifmar pins. For Mod truck its Ifmar pins all the way around. Last year a few guys ran Enduros and some ran GB's on SC trucks and liked them. Anyone know of a small pin SC tire something like the Ifmars? Last year I ran calibers and GB's myself but neither was very good.

Sounds like you might wanna try some Bowties or Bowfighters. They are not small pins but I love them on light dusty tracks.

Or even some Snipers.

We've had good results with the Snipers and Enduros

+1 on previous posts. I ordered a set of AKA City blocks, which tend to work about anywhere. Small pins would recommend the Sniper, Double D V2's, etc.

We have an outdoor track that sounds similar.....Enduros and Cityblocks dominate our track.......this year more people moving to the Cityblock in supersoft.

I am running Cityblocks in Soft and they are hooking up solid....alot more than the Enduros...but my setup has changed as well.

Everything mentioned has a flat pin which doesnt seem to work very well at this track. I was hoping someone knew of a tire that has small pointy pins like on these truck Ifmar's. Thats all that seems to really work good there.
