Default proline calibers

i know ive seen it before but i cant seem to find it. i got some calibers for this coming race on my buggy and was wondering what way you want to tread to face. i remember reading that you will get more steering and better acceleration if you have the tread facing a certain way. let me knoww!
thanks

They are directional tires. There is an arrow on each tire. Just make sure when you mount them that 2 of the arrows face one way and 2 arrows face the others. Look at the tires and there are arrows on them. The arrows point foward such that when the tire spins the arrows go in the same direction. They are directional just like high performance tires on my 1:1 full size vehicle.

They are softer from what I have heard and will wear out faster then the City Blocks.

I haven't tried them, but that is what a local racer here was telling me about them. But he did say they were dialed when you first stick them on.

they are softer and do wear out faster, but they also hook up better on every track i have had them on so far. if the tracks are wet and soft enough for the tires to dig into i have even had to much traction at times. i like having that problem
compairing proline m3 and aka soft compounds

I have been running calibers in m2 compound on my truggy. I love them. Sometimes there is too much side bite but I can get use to that. Running the m2 compound in 100+ degree weather has been great. Wear is ok and grip os better than the usual cityblock / I beam combo I like to run.
