Default Tires on blue groove tracks.

Do you ware tires out faster on a blue groove, or a wet track? In stock buggy I run slicks all the way around. But 4wd, I donít have the throttle control to stay in the groove yet. So I use taper pins. I get two race nights out of them. With a small amount of racers at my track using slicks, would the tracks benefit buy selling more tires if they let the track become blue groove? Or does a wet tack ware tires out faster? I guess a little long winded.

You ware tires much faster on a blue groove track cause it becomes high traction. A wetter track tends to load up the tires more.
