Default Truggy - Help me expand my tire lineup

I race mostly on hard pack dusty surfaces...the racing line cleans out as the day goes not but never really grooves.

For 2010 I have:

- Medium CityBlocks
- Medium I-Beam
- Blue Crosshair
- Supersoft Gridiron - left over from indoor...will prob. run in the spring when it's still cool outside.

On a typical race day I will run cityblocks when the track is dusty and then switch to I beams as the dust clears off the racing line. I ran the crosshairs in one qualifier last season and liked them.

I'm looking for one more tire for my bag to round out my selection..I was thinking a soft or medium gridiron for cooler conditions or else a soft I-beam since I run them the most.

What else should I consider? Any other recomendations???

I don't run Calibers, but if the balancing is anything like the the LPR's you will have to morgage your house to afford all the balancing putty you will need to make those tires work. I switched to J Concepts because of the balancing issues Pro Line seems to have had.

VTR prolines do not need balancing or just a minimal.

All I use are calibers and revolvers (M2 and M3). no need for anything else on my truggy

VTR tires are 20grams lighter per tire compared to standard LPR like AKA. thats 80+ grams
