Default Tires for indoor racing

Got a question. I'm planning on going to the 2010 AMS and have never raced this event, or any indoor event for that matter. I'm trying to get a general idea of what tread/compound tires to bring. I plan on using JConcepts. I know its still 4 months away, but I'm trying to get a headstart on getting supplies together. Thanks for the help. By the way, I'll be running buggy if it makes a difference.

Blue "Sevens" are awesome indoors! the more i ran the better they got, once the top pin was gone they were really good.

So few people race indoors in the summer that you may not get a lot of responses. I would expect the best tires to be about what you would run on the same track outdoors in the summer with the exception being that the track will be cooler because of the shade.

I have ran at AMS a few times. I am running Panther Switches with AKA inserts. They work Good. There is a variety of tires people run. Switches, barcodes, sevens they all seem to work well.

M3 calibers would work the best or M3 holeshot. Also depends on the heat if you would want to go to an m2. I run them on a small indoor track and they are hooked. I also like the jc kit tires that came with the rc8t ce kit, I think they are an yellow but I doped them the night before and they felt really stable.

I usually run M3 calibers with proline foams--Panther Raptor clay with ofna red or yellow foams--Panther switch clay. I dont use aka foams in the winter here in iowa seem to be too hard when the temps drop. But love the aka in summer weather

Wishbones?

hahaha. Wishful thinking...if ya can't beat 'em, join 'em I guess.

JConcepts BarCodes, PL Inside Jobs and now AKA Wishbones.

JC Blue, PL M3, AKA Soft...should cover any hardpacked, bluegroove indoor setup.
