I don't know about most popular at the track as it seems like lots of people run lots of different stuff, especially at different tracks. These seem like the tires I'm reaching for the most.

Buggy: Recoil, Bowfighter (XBT/Eclipse)
Truggy: JC Cross Hairs

I have been racing with AKA I Beams and CityBlocks in soft compound for outdoor after switching over from Proline M3 compound tires and like the AKA truggy tire alot more. These tires so far are dope .

For buggy we are restricted to AKA crossbrace, LRP kamikaze or Xceed stardust. Compound and insert are free to choose.

As many as you have the money to buy. No one tire or compound is going to work everywhere.

For the most part though...

Hard packed tracks/blue groove with little dust Holeshot, Gridiron or Megabite.

Wet hard packed, Holeshot, Megabite, Inside Job, Sevens.

Hard packed with some dust Caliber, Cityblock or Revolver.

Loose or dusty, I-beam, Caliber, City-Beam or Bow-fighter.

Ya I always end up with tons of tires and I love to try new stuff. Earlier this year when I went to the nitro challenge I had tons of tires just for that event. I didn't realize how many until a buddy of mine came over and commented on my tire selection. I usually cary 1 dialed bag for buggy and 1 for truggy with the ziplock bags so 6-7 sets of truggy and 8 for buggy. You never know how the track will change or what will be the hot tire of the day. Sometimes it changes.

Yep you can never have too many tires. For big events I'll bring as many as 3-4 sets of the same tire, just so I always have a fresh set. I just mounted up 7 fresh sets of tires for a big race next week. I have a lot of tires.

I'll try anything and I am really happy with the VP pro tires. I will say that for consistency and longevity I dont think anything beats AKA but bang for your buck with great results, I am really pleased with the VP pro tires.

Thanks for all of the input guys. My future project is an online retail store where I will focus on mostly 1/8 scale products such as tires, wheels, inserts, clutches etc. With that said I can't afford to bring in every compund of every tire so I wanted to see what was popular and I would have the best chance at selling.

Please PM if you are interested in any pre-order specials on tires, wheels, inserts etc. You will not be able to beat these prices anywhere unless you have sponsership.
