I have what is probably dumb question. When people say they use the open cell foam from a rear tire cut to 3/4 do they mean of the width or cut it to make it shorter? I run at a high bite clay track and a high to medium bite clay and dirt track. Also on a side note. I have a front set of ions with red AKA foam in them the foam is shot but the tire is perfect what is the best way to remove the tire from the wheel without damaging it? Thanks

Awesome thanks. So do cut down open cell work better on high bite than closed cell?

Not exactly sure about that. Ran some dirt webs in clay compound yesterday indoors on damp clay with open cell inserts and they worked great. Tires even squealed around a few corners. Probably the first time I have ran open cell in a few years. Will probably stick with open cell for a while, easier on the wallet.

Damp-Wet. We have a "mister" system that we use at the beginning of each round.

The LPS repels the water which is why I think it works so good.

For front tire

not 3/4 , its 3/16 usually..

Tip

Place your Sharpie flat on table and scribe a line on foam for perfect 3/16..
Higher traction indoor clay uses full rear foam , no trim..

Some actually put it on wet, and say it works better. For me I feel it's really similar results just letting it dry.

Only downfall to the LPS is it eats the foams.

Thats it, dont know if it's cheaper anywhere else.. Locally I can pick it up for $9, but dont know where u can buy it where u live. There are TONS of different LPS cans, but that's the one we have been using. Try it out and see what you think.
