Casper uses only Losi fronts I think, so he might have some suggestions for that, but I find Proline 8175 M3s to work well for both Losi and AE.

In mod I actually like Red 7202. The pinks work great in stock and are my choice most of the time for that. On a fresh track silvers will work great as well. (all 7202)

A lot of guys like proline tires but I have not broke down to try any yet. I plan on it but have not remebered to pick up a set yet.

In truck I feel red 8 rows have more then enough steering on most tracks but a lot of people run M3 edges or Red Directionals as well but these give to much steering IMO.

Joe-- Supercross was super hard and almost blue groove.

He was asking what works on a "new" track.

Not sure squares are the tire to run on a fresh track but I have never tried them?

We always run Pro-Line tires when the track is wet. When the track starts to dry out, Losi Pink tires seem to work a little better. At the Supercross the track was dry, but also was a little dusty making Pro-Line tires better.

Do you still run squares on a fresh track? I guess that was my question.

Not sure if you also run 4WD, but could you recommend a tire setup for dusty conditions?

You might get better responses elsewhere, since this a forum for "Socal Raceway", an electric track in Huntington Beach.

But I'll try to help the best as I can.

Here are some I can think of:

Hot Rod Hobbies located in Sagus, CA near Magic Mountain.
Crystal Park located in Compton, CA in a casino parking lot.
Full Throttle Hobby in Bakersfield, CA
Sun Valley Raceway in Sun Valley, CA
Revelation
Pegasus Hobbies located about 3 mins north of Revelation
Hemet Race Park (formerly The Dirt)
