I assume in clay compound?

Also, has anyone used J Concepts Octagons on carpet and how did they work if so, what compound?

we use both clay and super soft (or whatever is similar to prolines M4 if that is available in slicks). If clay, we sauce them.

the softer compounds offer better grip without needing sauce or much sauce but wear a bit faster. Personally I actually like the super soft etc. stuff.

Jconcepts Octagons looks like a slightly more "treaded" proline prime if that makes sense. I don't see personally why they wouldn't work if you are already considering slicks anyway. As for compound, probably be similar to what is used for slicks, like clay or a super soft depending on what has been stated to work at the track.

sweet. So clay slicks all around works for 4wd, no? I still have use for my clay tires then. As I recently glued a fresh set of primes on my 4wd then after 2 months... my local clay track announced they are going carpet.

I wonder if the primes clay works with 2wd.

I'm running MC primes on my SC5M on our local carpet track.. and loving it! Give's a bit of slide without the traction roll issues the "carpet tires" tend to have..

yeah a bit of slide works well.

As for clay tires we have also tried some treaded ones too, and they work well, though the tread can get ghosted fairly quick depending on the class.

For guys running SCT, we actually really like the stock AE tires that came with the SC104x4. They still make those and they work excellent, even better as they wear.

Ours are the Clay Primes, 2wd is are the only cars allowed. They work great. (CRC Carpet i think with SXT 3.0 traction compound).
