Default HB megabite vs PL revolvers

Which works best for steering all around balance on lightly dusty, bumpy tracks(hard packed)?

Which lasts longer for longer 1 hour mains?

The best lesson I have learned in this hobby is to buy the stuff I want and try it for myself. If it stinks I never buy it again and if its great, I stick with it until something better comes along. No trying to sound like a jerk but this is not a cheap hobby and you already know that. Get both sets and see which one you like better. Its not like the other set will go to waste.

Pink compound on the megabites for sure. Pink is the softest.

well myself i think alot depends on outdoor/indoor temps. the compound tire you run...I myself have toatally smoked a brand new set of caliber softs in a 45 minute main. alot depends o also on driving style also. i agree as stated earlier get both sets and judge for yourself....
