IL_AudiRacer, I use S-Grip with Tamiya hard foam inserts all around for asphalt. Then fine tune with traction compound.

Good luck on your race.

p.s. for me the tire runs better after around 30 minutes of running (the tire gets broken in).

I've never seen much advantage when running the double-stuff mini tires. When would be the optimal time to try them again? I'm assuming only on high traction surfaces.

Any track that has decent straight sections.
Double stuffing can be used as a tuning aid as far as traction (if you know what your trying to accomplish and know how to achieve it) but for most its all about increasing the wheel tire diameter to a constant 60mm or just a tic over to get a straight line speed advantage.

Makes sense. Most of the time I'm on pretty small tracks. I actually prefer really soft inserts (almost nothing) on my local track, just for the added traction.

double stuffing also helpes the tire from folding over on high speed sweepers

Does anybody know where I can get a M01 mini kit or do any of you guys have one, I'm looking on behalf of someone that's interested in parts of a full kit.
