Just use the Drake or Truhe setup and find the right set of tires. Those setups work almost anywhere.

Calibers for sure. They will bite pretty hard.

i assume m3 calibers? I think they'll be ok as long as it doesn't get too hot.

I've been having some success with those Exagon and Record Breaker tires from Sweep, in the very same conditions

I ended up using 30 all around for shock oil and calibers for tires and trial and error with the shock adjusters. I placed 2nd,2nd,3rd for qualifiers and was leading the a-main untill my motor mount came loose (i think) and killed my clutch bell thanks for the help guys.

Btw i saw a guy use cityblock ssoft and it looked like it was hooking up the BEST out of all the tires there yesterday. Am I just thinking that or would they actually work excellent?

City blocks and calibers should hook up well for your track conditions. I have used both of them and they felt real good. Just make sure your using the right compound. At a minimum M3 or soft and if you can get away with it, M4 or super soft.

Thanks for the info I have been waiting for cityblock soft mounted on yellow wheels for over a month now. I will place an order for super soft ones monday.

Just curious what conditions / surface do I-beam soft/super soft hook up best in
