I ran sorex 32's at the diamond on a losi type-r w/ a 13.5 i know it wa a little slow btu it was on practice day (thursday) and there was no traction compound or goo from the gassers on the track and the car still hooked up.
There are quite a few top class guys that race that track you can seek out too, Quinn Moon, Skooby Horton, Marvin and Darren Howard. They know the tips and tricks to get the most out of your car at the diamond. They helped me at both the diamond and at the mushroom bowl.
I'd also look at your ride height/droop, front spring stiffness and shock oil as well, i used to use jaco greens w/ tire tweak but switched to sorex and buggy grip, but RP30's seem to be the best tire going too bad we can't find any. Buggy grip seems to work better at the diamond because it isn't as sensitive to the dust.
I have to warn you I'm not really that good of a driver, but my car is pretty close to dialed due to the help o those folks i mentioned above. I'm just passing on the tips they've shared w/ me
