Thanks for the tire and compound info guys. I have a set of AKA City Blocks on the way. Have any of you used the Proline VTR wheels and tires? What Caliber tire compound would work best M2 or M3? Thanks again.

I have been using soft and super soft I-Beams a lot lately. It seems like just about every AKA tire is good @ ARC. It is just that each one will give you a different "feel" around the track.

I would not use anything less than a soft. I have medium AKA and they are like ice on the track. Although once I do get traction the car is crazy fast!
