how hard is your track surface? Seems crimefighters have always been a good place to start.

If the track is really hard, those cubics could be great.

crimefighter m2 or bow-tie m2 are always good. If you are still searchin' for traction I would go to a softer spring.

pro line dirty harry (M2), if you can find them anymore, sweet ass tire for dry and dusty conditions.

You could even try shaved crime fighters (M2) or bowties in XTR.

I think the new hole shots would work perfect for a hard, dusty, and dry blown out 1/8 track.

That's why it's important to water your track regularly inbetween heats and rounds. Our track will do that if you don't water it. I compleatly balded a set of Komodo Dragons because of it one sunday.

Oh yeah, thats also a good tire. Panther Komodo Dragons
