Default Another question for you 1/10 scale guys-

Hello-


Whats a popular tire for an indoor, hardpacked, and slighty damp track? I currently use taper pins on my 1/8 buggy (pink compound)..... Should I use similar tires on my B44? I just to get some feedback from experienced racers.


Thanks,

Jim

Yes, you will run similar tires. At our local indoor track Pink Taper pins are also the favorite on e1/8. On 1/10th scale Losi Taper Pins(Pink), Panther Switch(SS)...etc..., and slicks are the favorite. Traction compound is also your best friend. Our track is a hard-packed and kinda greasy.

Your best bet would be to see what other drivers like on your track.

I used Double Dees on the B44 and now on my eRevo. Right now Jconcepts has them on sale (all 4) with rims for $30 - for truggy.

JConcepts Gold Bar Codes seem to work great at all the indoor track around me...

I'm gonna have to try that sometime. Does JC make Bar Codes for 4wd fronts as well?

Yes, 2wd, 4wd front, and buggy and truck rears, not to mention 1/8.. so they have you covered!

I use pink Taper Pins on the buggy and truck early in the day while the track is wet. As it dries out, I switch to pink BK Bars on the buggy and blue Bar Codes on the truck. It stays dialed pretty much all day that way.

Do you race at RCE? For 4wd, pink BK Bars in the back and pink tapers up front are the tire of choice with bomb1/And-1 foams.
