proline electrons in either MC or M4. I was using MC and wheeler was pretty hooked up, at least I only struggled with my buggy (2wd). two words though "throttle control" . . . . if you have none I don't know that there is going to be enough grip to help you . What I mean to say is you don't have the infinite grip of SRS, so throttle control will be rewarded . . .

From what others in the pits were saying M4 was supposed to have more grip, but the dryer and dustier it gets I am thinking the harder compound would work better . . . I only had MC to test, and some different tread types, but I am gluing up some M4's to try out.

hope that helps . . .

This track is awesome! I recommend people check it out. Sounds like Hobby Action may be moving their store down there as well in the future.

Bring your sauce but leave it outside. You can sauce but you have to go out to your car to do it.

I really dont need another step between me and driving my toy car on the track. They should prohibit it for club races.

I went and checked out the track and watched the Desert Classic a bit ago and was surprised at the track surface. Not your typical indoor clay. How has tire wear been now that people have been running the track? Seems the surface is a more abrasive than I would have thought.

Oh, and is stock class 17.5 or 13.5?

Was the desert classic ran drier than club or practice conditions, or should I expect to run through a set of tires every two runs?
