I would think SS tires are already the wrong choice for sugared dirt.

IFMAR has never shown much skill at making good decisions regarding tire rules. Have a look at the Touring worlds, with only two sets of tires for your entire event and no sauce or cleaners allowed period.

My prediction: Rain washes away the sugar, spec tire is wrong for 99.9% of outdoor dirt anyway (ever seen anyone buy and run Sweep Tendroids voluntarily?), race become most epic whine-fest ever and AE wins by deploying old plastic chassis B4.2's for maximum grip negating the entire point of such a race (marketing of new products!) and we all move on.
I wonder if there will be more whining at the race or in this thread.

Be a Cav and Ty battle for the win in 2wd. AE always comes out on top, so Cav 1, Ty 2nd. Would be awesome if a RM buggy some how won, but doubt there will even be one there.

If its anything like previous years...you are only allowed to tech one car for the event. Don't know how that works in practice though.

It's more likely the set of 4. The 2wd tires are only 100 yuan for the rears so it only makes sense with slightly narrower front tires they are only 90 more instead of 100.
