Default double dees

Double dees v2 would be good. If the track is abrasive you can go harder compound.
Goosebumps wear really good too.

i dont think dirt can reach 135 degrees lol, you must be thinking of a asphault parking lot track.
I agree I beams soft all round, or medium if you want longer life.

Jconcepts doublecross work really well on dusty tracks and the wear is also good.

J concepts have a great selection of tires that zone in on specific conditions...

Recoils in M2 or M3, Calibers in M2 or M3, For AKA Gridirons in soft
and medium.

The more dust, the more I would lean toward the Calibers. Gridirons will
actually work with a pretty good layer of dust they just may not have the
wear your looking for in soft,mediums work well and will wear alot better.


Recoils would work ok in a layer of dust and only get better as the track
grooves in.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I will be more precise about the track because for now the choice is too large.

The ground is hard with little holes and rocks. The surface is dusty but the racing line clearly visible. No blue groove at all. The out of the racing line is very dusty (light dust), the racing line itself always has a little dust on it. The track overall is fast with large & medium corners. I need a good side bite from the tires so that the car doesn't slide too much in the high speed corners.

What do you think about the revolver? This is what Jerome Sartel (a good french racer) used on this track during a national race.

Is it run dry or wet?

I would only run a crossbrace on this if it was wet. Houston was running
some Sweeps on our local track that has the same abrasive, and rocky
surface that I was running Recoils on. I think he was using Exergens?
you might bounce over to his engine service thread and ask him how
he liked them at RPM Hobbies track.

I run the track when it is dry, so there is a lot of light dust on the hard ground. Almost never run it when it is wet

Well when i was running Med City Blocks on our local track they where
lasting maybe three race days( 3 -7min qual and a 20 min main). M2 recoils
on the same track look like they will get about the same wear. Med Gridirons
about the same. In other words I dont really think your gonna find a tire
thats going to last much longer than CityBlock/Ibeam without a major loss
of grip.

Try some M2 Recoils, I think you will really like the sidebite and overall
traction just stay out of the fluff.

I have taken track temps and seen them up over 100 plenty of times. Next time its 90 degrees out and your at the track, do what chops said and take a temp, you will be suprised Im sure.

why because the pin rolls over to much and it cause it to wear and you are losing tracion.

you run a med tire you get longer wear more consistan and you have traction again.

once you hit 135 track temps it time to pull out a harder tire

any questions stutdents?
So, if your running on a blue groove track at night and the temp drops to 70, do you run a super soft tire.

but if your running on the same track in the heat of the day, and its 140+ you run a hard tire?

sorry but this doesn't seem quite right

VP Pro Axemen in ultraflex or med flex work awesome on dusty tracks and the wear is really good with the medium flex.
