Default Anyone race at Leisure Hours in Chi-Town?

If so, I was wondering what is the tire\foam of choice for 1/8th Buggy and Truggy for the outdoor track.

Thanks

m/s gators with stock foam on lp wheels for truggy and m/s k2's and m/s gators for the buggy. check the website for times cause this weekend sat is for a bash day and sunday is outdoor onroad or indoor offroad. great fac with three tracks. and if you are in the area and wish to checkout some of the best onroad drivers, the byrons race will be on the last weekend of this month. i hear mugens and xrays top guys are coming.

well i always end up running the gators after the groove comes in and if it starts to break apart or theres still a little dust on the track i like the gators on the front and k2 on the back. but if i could only get one tire it would be the gator

I like the bowfighters. When it starts to get a bit blown out use a set of K2's with the outside row of knobbies snipped off so they dont grab in the rut.

Thanks for the replies.

Anyone try the JConcepts tires?

If I already have the LPR BowTies for my truggy would I see much improvement buying the gators?

Thanks
