Oh ok, thanks Charlie. I'm still kinda new to TC. The reason why I was asking is because mine were getting up to 120-122 last weekend. It is a big track in Washington and the surface is not as abrasive. This is also not using tire warmers, just paragon. So I am just trying figure out what is a normal range and what is to high.

I hear ya. Most of the time i go by what the car does anyway. When i am by myself at the track and no one to temp the car for me, i have no choice but to go by what the car does. You will know when your tires are at it's breaking point and adjust from there.

I have wurth brake cleaner and i have clean them 3 times hard but they aren't full shiny, still production leftovers or they are maybe faulty?
Do you have some better stuf to clean them so that they are full shiny?
I have reinhard sauce so i will try it again after i find how to clean them better.

It work on hot day so i finaly got them running, but this is definitly hardest 30 tire i have run, they like very hot track.
When i compare exp36 and exp30 i would use 36 prior to 30 when it's cooler outside.
Can someone confirm this?

quick question on the inserts whats the main difference between a pink insert and a blue insert on carpet tracks, i know about the weight difference but really whats does it come down to on having the same tire say a 36 and one with a pink insert and the other with the blue what does it do to the tire ?

X1 can also be used as a traction compound on high grip tracks.

X1 is very good on high grip tracks. It's actually just a very "light" traction compound. I like it when it when the track gets very hot. Helps keep the tires a little cooler, and prevents them from overheating.
