Paul,

We run a lot of stuff - mostly Losi Pink compound or Panther Clay compound tires. Lately we've been fooling around with Losi Red/Panther Soft compounds as the track gets dry and very hard. Here are some good starting combos:

Buggy

Panther Clay Switch 2.0 + Panther Clay Bobcat
Losi Pink Taper Pins + Losi Pink Taper Pins
Losi Pink Taper Pins + Losi Red Wide Body Ribs (A-7202)
Panther Clay Switch 2.0 + Losi Red Wide Body Ribs (A-7202)
Proline M3 Inside Job + Proline M3 Low Profile 4-Rib
Proline M3 Hole Shot + Proline M3 Low Profile 4-Rib
Losi Pink X-2000 + Losi Pink Taper Pins

Truck

Panther Clay Switch 2.0 + Panther Clay Switch 2.0
Panther Clay Switch 2.0 + Proline M3 Edge
Panther Clay Wookie + Losi Red 8 Rib
Losi Pink King Pin + Losi Pink King Pin
Losi Pink/Red T-2000 + Losi Red 8 Rib

4WD

Panther Clay Switch 2.0 + Panther Clay Bobcat 4WD
Losi Red Taper Pins + Losi Silver 4WD Blockhead
Losi Pink Taper Pins + Losi Pink Taper Pins 4WD
Losi Pink X-2000 + Losi Pink Taper Pins 4WD

That is just a few of the combinations. All kinds of stuff works on our track.

Default Photos of the Duelin' Track.

Here are some photos of the newly built Duelin' track. We're still watering and packing the track as well as working over a few of the jumps to get a really nice track.
