What is the typical tire for 1/8? Small, med or big pin?

Default tires

Take this with grain of salt, but I think small pins do pretty good. I run all 1/10th scale stuff, we run goosebumps and double D's alot. We just changed the track so it might be a little loose until couple of races on it. Its mostly Red Bama Clay and when it has moisture in it, look out.

I think medium pin is good for when the track is wet and/or fluffy (like after a track rebuild). Small pin works better once the dirt packs down and when the track is dry.

Default Weed-B-Gone

Hey guys,
I got the weed and grass killer down this weekend. Did a round Friday morning and again Sunday afternoon. Should be good for the upcoming weekend. I need to get with somebody who has a key to shed so I can leave a sprayer full out there for whenever.

Here's a little video from the other day. Any chance for a faster, more free flowing, more jumps, less speed bumps, type of layout?

+ YouTube Video
