A little bit of everything will work, I've been using 3D's and they have worked fine. Others have used Digits, Hole Shots, Rebars, Hybrids, Suburbs and other similar Small pin/Barred tire. I think I will either run 3D'S or Hybrids on my buggy and Digits on my SCT

Who makes "digits" Closest tire I can think of is the Losi Ultra Digit and that track will not be that dusty will it. I was thinking Panther Clay Rattlers but not sure that will be enough tire with the other tires you listed?

Yes I was referring to the Ultra Digits, the track won't be that dusty, however
Since the tires are so soft, I've had excellent traction in 4x4 SCT
I think the rattlers would work fine as well.

Intersting. Ultra Digits are GREAT practice tires as they last FOREVER and actually get better with time as they wear down some. I think I am set. Now I just have to wait two weeks. Getting pumped about this trip! Should be good times.

Hey guys, Contrary to what we have been talking about for the past week or so, We are now deciding that we are going to run the track damp. We will mist the track approximately every 4 classes or when needed. Kenny and i have been experimenting with watering the track for the past week or so trying to get it perfect and we think we have figured it out. We have decreased tire wear quite a bit and have also increased traction. All the tires that worked on the dry surface have worked on the slightly damp surface (For me and Kenny).
So Just to make it official, The track will be ran damp for both the Summer Nationals as well as our race Tuesday. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Sounds great. Anything to help save costs is a plus in my book!
