So would you put the the triangle pins in the front for steering and in the rear the other way, like a scoop for traction? I was talking to Scott Hughes about these tires at RCX.

You can run them with the Y pointing forward like a tractor tire in the rear for more forward bite and backwards in the front for added steering.

How well do you think these tires will do on a hard packed blue groove track?

At silver state, i bought 6 sets of M2, and 5 sets of m3. Used 1 set for the whole race at Silver State, and they are still in great condition.

Somewhere they look like stadium Pro-Line Step Pin T but with closer pins.

I also think they are the best Pro-Line tires for buggy. Drake were running the truggy version at Silver State.

If this is the begining of a tire war... it is a good news, all racers will take advantage of it !
