i'd bring some slick, a set of tapers worn down . a set with more pin and maybe one set of new. if the dirt is anything like we currently use slicks will work all week. and some good tire sauce. we ran slicks all week in electric last year. but dirt isn't suppose to be coming from the normal supplier we use. so be prepared.

Tires...Pink compound........Taper pins are probably all you'll need for rears, ribs or tapers for fronts. You might want to bring a set of X-3000, or BK bars just in case.

It will be tough to predict exactly what is going to work because this isn't going to be our regular location, or our regular dirt.

The track will be very FRESH when practice starts, so you will probably run slicks at least to start the day.

I am GUESSING it will dry out some and you will need more pin as time goes on.

If it was to dry out a lot, the worst case I could see the Pros running a new set of scrubbed in tires for each qual and main.

As I posted in the crcrc.com club forums.

As it currently stands...
2 Buggy classes (Stock and mod)
1 4wd Class (Mod)
3 Truck Classes (Stock, Mod and Outlaw)

I'm sorry but that is more than just a little retarded. With all classes allowing brushless and lipo there's really nothing special about the Outlaw truck class. Also, with the popularity recently of 4wd I can't see any reason not to have a 10.5/19t 4wd class.

The thread on RCTech.net was filled with people wanting this class...

Please Drop Outlaw truck for a 10.5/19t class.
