I just got a sent Look Awesome i only run them 1 time the track was Dry and Dusty and they did not work to good but should work GOOD on a track that has been watered are Blue Grooved.

The Blocks are a little bigger then Crime Fighters but should work better then Crime Fighters.

Bigger than a crime? Holy crap I was hoping the were gonna be small. Something to kinda compare to a revolver. Oh well guess I won't be trying them. Don't really have anything I need to run a large pin

Enduro is an excellent blue groove final tire, We ran a set for 45 mins and the tire felt constant for the entire race.

If you want something like a crimefighter than you have the AKA crossbrace. That tire kinda of sucks in soft compound I have only liked it as a medium or hard.

the Enduros look to be tailor made for blue groove, or wherever you have hard abrasive conditions. Meanwhile I have a set and eager for the opportunity to try them out in the right conditions.

I have both the new enduro's in soft and also the revolver in m3... The tires are very simular in feel on a hard clean surface.. I do like the enduro a little bit better for all around, like if the track is not clean or a little dusty,loose but NO loam...The revolvers tend to loose some response for me when the little pins wear off the top of the hexes.... The enduro's seem to stay really consistant and wear very little. I have been running the same set of enduros (soft) for over 3 weeks and I love em...

WHAT? Do you have the tires and have you looked at them? The Pins are Bigger then the Pins on the Crimfighters.

AKA Enduro's have a short (not tall) lug, with a sipe in each lug. At first glance it looks like an on-road tire, which makes it great for those blue grooved type tracks. I ran them at Nitro Challenge, and they were hooked on that type of surface. On a hard compact surface, with maybe a tiny bit of dampness, these tires are HOOKED!

If you race on a loamy type surface, they may be a little "skatey" and not work as well, as another AKA design, but if hard pack is your surface, you will definitely want to give the Enduros a try.

I have about 4 weeks on mine at the same conditions. They allow you to slide the rear in these conditions. The wear on them is by far better than any tire I have ran and even in the soft compound.

Thank you for clearing that up!

There is absolutely no comparison between the CF and the Enduro. They are for two totally different surfaces.

I used them successfully at;

Nitro Challenge (moist and somewhat hard packed)
Silver State ( Dry and hard packed)
Enduro SC tire (Very moist indoor clay & moist hard pack with surface loam outdoor)
