A pair of Soft Crossbraces for the front and Soft I-Beams for the rear and you'll have a set of tires that work great at SRS, ET and The Nitro Pit.

No need to buy 6 different sets when one works great at all three and will last longer than any other. Just stay off the tracks when they are bone dry. If you think you'll run on a dry track for practice then maybe get a set of Medium Cityblocks for practice tires.

Also, what Chuck said is great advice. Find Jake at SRS and you'll have a ton of experience to learn from with the RC8.

Thanks for the input, I might give this set up a try.

Dans stuff should be pretty setup already.

Holeshot m3s at SRS

bowties m3 at the pit

Those 2 sets should get you through most driving conditions.

You can also pick up sets in m2 for practice.
