Douglas, most of These people dont race at our track, you should be asking this question locally. How does someone who runs at a totally different track know what tires to run at the Nitro Pit? Tracks are not the same, and neither are tire choices....I wouldn't put too much faith in the answers you are getting here. PM some of the fast guys at The Pit, like Bill, and Tony and Will, or Todd..I think they will be allot more helpful

The bowfighter combo has been working well at the Pit for awhile...Make sure you balance them..truggy tires (especially Prolines) are usually way out of balance..Good luck

When the track blue grooves you're going to want a smaller softer pin, I'd get a set of m3 hole shots or similiar to run when it's dry and grooved out.

Unfortunately the answer to your question is : your going to need muliple tires most likely.

m3 bow fighters should work in most conditions fairly well though, if you only want to buy one set.
