Thanks so much ill try them adjustments. I know few fast guys tryed running yellows but they all said they where loosing to much grip around the 5min mark. And some went back to pinks and some to whites.

it is the white paragon cans and track is crc carpet.

Here's another thought,with the FX2 use less. It is a very oily compound and can build up on the tires. This may be causing your traction loss at the 5 minute mark. Try using just a ring of 1 dauber's width around the center of the rear tire and spread it out with your fingers. Too much additive can pick up more dirt as well.

ok il try that. i have been saucing them heavy letting sit for 20mins then rubbing them off. Then after ever round cleaning them with motor spray on a paper towl let dry then reapply. Pink seem to grip well just the yellow oranges seem to fade off.

At my track when yellows stopped working we would go to magentas front and rear . Then things were good. Other than that we always run blk fronts and yellow rears. But we also use sxt 3.0.

i tryed black fronts and orange rears at our track and it had a awful bad pash and came off track with glazing on all four tires


I think chris is right the car dosnt want to rotate it wants to push around the turn instead of rotating.

To be honest, I'm a bit surprised at the choice of tire sauce.
FXII is generally used as more of a sticky outdoor application.
Most indoor tracks use Paragon GE, SXT or JTG.

I'm not surprised your tires are glazing.
That said, if others at your track are not having the same issues, there is obviously method to the madness

Alot of people are havin grip issues. The top 2 guys at the track one guy racing longer then i living and well sponsored and the other almost lives at the track are only to not havin to much trouble. But the chqnge and clean tires every run. They also running white rears which im going order to have and try once i get the car to rotate and carry more corner speed. My car is as fast as theres on straight but the infield there gone and the way there cars rotate around the turns is smooth and fast

Straight line speed doesn't count for much in club racing, I gear for rip, top speed don't matter.

If they are changing tires every run, so should you.
Bring 3 sets, one for each heat, and one for the main.
Rotate those out, and use em next week.

At the big races when the grip is insane, that's the go.
The tires get too sticky, and it takes time for them to dry out.
Foam tires are sponge like

90% of the setup is tire choice & prep.

I remember racing places where you had to have a set of tires for every run, because after 1 run they were totally gone, worn out.

Just a quick tip - you can flip the wheelnuts the other way around with the nylon ring facing the wheel

Hey guys,

First off, I hope you all have a happy and safe new year.

I want to let you all know that our computer system has been down for about a week and a half at the shop. I got it back up and running but still have a few bugs to work out. All of the orders that have been placed have shipped out but notifications of shipment to your email have not been sent due to these issues. Sorry for the inconvenience. Things should be running back to normal shortly.

Jason whats the status on the new rear pod? I am using the IRS ride height adjusters and tired of breaking them. Guess I am going back to the associated ones that seem to hold up better but would rather put the money into the new pod.
