Wet/moist bumpy/rutted hardpack with a layer of loose sticky dirt. IFMAR studs work best, pins if the track was swept right before. Mostly medium speed corners.

On my RB5WC I was using a slightly modified Shin Adachi '11 Electrochamps setup on the standard WC kit - half a deg more camber, no side balance weight,

Tapped out on racing money for the week. Can go next week one day your there. Got a set of Pro-Line Suburbs you can throw on it, all I have are Bar Codes which I hear are not ideal for WCRC.
