Default Truggy clay track tires

I am having a very hard time finding any Panther Raptor Clay compound tires...what else is anyone running on an indoor clay track? I have heard the Hot Bodies MegaBites in pink would be good, but they don't come with foams, so what foams would you put in them? Also, anyone know why there are no Panther Raptor Clay's to be found?

HB megabite pink compound with AKA grooved foams are the tired to have IMO. they work great everywhere. and last forever.

On our track a lot of guys run Switch 2.0 tires. I run the Panther Boa's which over time as they wear they get better and better.

I ran at RaceWorld a couple weeks ago and was very happy with the Boa's. Were very Predictable. I know the fast guy I ran with the day I was there was running Proline Recoils, another guy was running Proline Calibers.

My Suggestion would be to see what the fast guys are running on your track. I think a Small to medium pin size is your best bet.

jonksi I will be at L.H this sat/sun I have a set of panther raptors I will sell ya for $20.00 for all 4 on white wheels with aka foams I can only run HB tires anymore so I have no use for them.

as for the pink megabites I run the AKA foams and trim the edge just slighty on both sides to keep the tire "rounded" other wise they make the tire "flat"
