i have no experience with Take-off tires, i dont know if they are still making tires? I do have a lotta experience with Sorex on asphalt. I used 28R and 32R
in my area. The 28R had very good grip in cooler weather and the 32R lasted much longer but did not provide the same traction as the 28's.

We ran 10.5 motors on a 100x50 foot track, the tires lasted about 4 club races.

I use Take off for a few years, SSA, SSB and CS22 but all this was on cool tracks (except SSB when we got a bit of heat) and they were really sturdy and lasted very well, regarding Sorex, we used the 36 in hot weather and the grip was good but the gluing on wheels was very average, inserts were also reliable (green) still we use to treat and warm them to get better result, otherwise it takes 3 laps to heat up.
