Hole shot? Is your stock class limited to stock tire?

Positron, electron, banditos are sometimes really good. Clay tires will wear better if the track will grip up. What track?

Oshkosh. Most been using Robbers, Upshots but as track is getting colder and slick, these are not working as well.

Our track is medium bite but during the summer people use Positrons or similar treads, and during the Winter they switch to slicks. I would try Primes and Inversions for your track conditions personally, as they made a huge difference for me this Winter.

Our treaded tires worked great in summer and early fall when track was warmer but as it got colder, gotta find something different. I wondered about the Primes. I see guys using them on carpet oval w/great success.
