Default Winter Tires

I did a search and didnt come up with anything. Can someone fill me in on the (Clay) compound like with proline its called MC heres a link> http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Buggy-Tires-2
JC calls it "gold" http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Insert-Gold-2
and I dont see anything from AKA for Clay specific. Is the MC or Gold softer than the M3 (proline) or Green (JC) or is it harder? I have some gold 7's that I think are super hard.

Thanks.

Good question Frank,

I'm not sure what has been done for the "Clay" compound tires these days. I think the idea for the Losi Pink compound back in the day was to have the traction of a Red compound and the wear rate of a Silver compound. It's old info for sure and like I said, I don't know what has been done since then.

I do know why you are asking, and for where you will be running this winter, I'd go with the softest coumpound you can get. More for the cold temps. than track. I think I ran softs the last time I ran down there and they seemed to do fine. Any harder tire than a soft and I was skating on the track.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/members/pw.html


PS hope none of the locals see this

This is the base and we got 30 more trucks of 100% Pure Clay coming over today/tomorrow and the bobcat's going to work tomorrow morning to get the rough layout started.

Clay compounds are a bit strange. They aren't as soft as something like a super soft compound, but aren't the same as a soft compound. They work really well on clay! I don't believe AKA has a clay compound. PL is MC, JC is Gold, Panther is Clay, Losi is Pink. If you're running on a tacky clay track, there's no substitution for a good clay compound and some traction additive.
