frank, i have tried m2 and m3 calipers. m3 was preferred in wet and transition to drying up. but when its dry totally i hated calipers totally.

I have ONLY tried SOFT city blocks in totally dry and wet and in transition. I loved it. unfortunately i have not tired this tire in non blue groove conditions BUT the nitro pit grooves up quickly.


As stated by dishsoap i have preferred losi eclipse in greens but they have a lot of side bite. Im going to try xbt up front, i have heard this fixes the issue

When I race the pit I run M3 V2 Bowfighters (Crimefighters front and Bowties rear) with the outside lugs cut off the crime fighters like Losi Racer said and Red Eclipse. I was told the green is even better. Truhe TQ with Bow Fighters last year. Joey watered the track last year and it was in great shape all week. Do your self a favor and bring losi Eclipse Red and Green's.

The xbt up front and eclipse in the rear give you a little more steering n the corners usually. I personally like this combo and it will work pretty well on most tracks dry, wet, indoor, outdoor, clay, etc. All eclipse or xbt ip front and eclipse rear is a lethal combo.
