for buggy
If wet M3 bowtie or holeshot for buggy also red EBT's work that is the red xbt and eclipse combo

Truggy hole shots and bowties are good. Not too sure about the AKA stuff.

Default wet

Wet track, alot of guys are running AKA soft I beams and M3 revolvers, I tried them and still think M3 v2 Bow fighters Crime fighters in the front and Bow Ties in the rear work the best for me but alot of the experts were using m3 revolvers.

You will be fine with Bowties or I-beams in the rear soft compound, and Crimefighters, or City blocks in the front soft compound. Either combo will give you tons of traction. The track does not really get blown out, and we were all using the bowfighters soft, until the AKA's came out. You will get slightly less traction roll with the AKA's and you can carry your speed into the corners a little better, and hit the gas a little sooner coming out of the turns with the AKA's. if you are used to the bowfighter combo stick with it. It will hook up just as good, and you wont have to get used to the AKA set-up. hole shots will not last through 3 races. I have not ried any of the other tires that have been mentioned. Nitro Pit is hard packed dirt, and its pretty dialed right now, but they may change it for the Nitro Challenge and then it will take some time to settle

yup youll want to take a mix of tire's. the only tires that will significantly wear will be your M3 holshots. AKA has the new gridirons and they wont wear as fast id run soft's. as far as tires for the mains.... ya everyone so far is right, take a few sets of m3 crimes, m3 bowties and m3 holeshots(ive even seen badlands work now that was crazy) the best thing to do is just watch other peoples tire selection. also knowing joey christensen(TRACK DESIGNER) he really hates his tracks from rutting so he'll most likely only water the outside line in hopes itll create a second line and also to keep it from dusting up. the track should slightly blue groove allitlle after day two. JUST HOPE IT DOESNT POUR LIKE LAST TIME. O YA ALSO I THINK MORE SHOPS LIKE CAROLINASRC AND AMAIN WILL BE BRINGING TONS OF TIRES THIS TIME AND DONT PLAN ON GETTING ANY FROM THE PROLINE TRUCK!!!

Default tires

One Hobbies just opened down the street from the Nitro Pit, It is the Nitro Pit hobby shop and I am sure they will have every tire out for the race. They will have parts and every thing you need, they might make runs. The phone number and contact info you can find in the Nitro Pit thread in the racing section.
