Check out Devin Whites setup a few pages back. The Tamiya USA's track is outdoors asphalt. It sounds like it's very similar to your surface. Devin is our TCS champ this year, excuse me, last year.

I suggest having atleast a dozen different tire combonations with you at every track. Why you ask? Well weather is never the same and niether is track traction also when you travel to different tracks like us socal guys tracks are always different. So when your car in the morning is dialed come the afternoon you might be loose or have a push and thats when a simple tire change from stiff to soft or soft to medium can make all the difference in the world. Here is what I usually have with me when I go racing.

60 D Tires with tamiya rims:

No insert
HPI low bounce insert
HPI med bounce insert
HPI double stuffed foam/foam insert
HPI Foam and blue hard insert = HARD
HPI Foam and green insert = Stiff
HPI Foam and red insert = Medium
HPI Foam and yellow insert = Firm

Tamiya Super Grip Radials:

No insert
HPI foam insert
HPI double stuffed Foam/Foam insert
HPI Double stuffed Foam/Blue insert

All of the colors above are HPI sedan inserts and I run the HPI foam insert against the tire then the regular foam that would contact the rim and beleive it or not I don't cut the sedan insert down it takes a liitle bit of finess but you can get it in there. The advantage is that it gives you a taller tire which = Higher Top speed for big tracks.

Don't trust this guy. I've raced against him a couple of times and know for a fact that he brings one spare set of Type A's with a double expresso latte' with a twist, and a pair of S-Grips with both mayo and mustard.

You heard it from me, and old guys don't lie.

Funny snail story, tho.

I suppose you have to ask yourself first, is there anything wrong with the standard arms?

I'd suggest not....
