From what I heard from Chicken, any tire works. They supposedly have magical dirt. I'm going to run Holeshots since I have a few sets. Chicken said that X2000s work as do bars and tapers, all in red compound. Chicken speaks very highly of Pitstop, it should be a fun time.

Chicken said they all hook up pretty well. Don't know if it matters much. WYD or one of the locals will probably chime in with an answer.

Back to LIR...... Slashes baby, I can't for them to come in. Should be a good time for sure.

With the track being so dry and the guys sweeping only we run, X2000, X3000, Holeshots some and sometimes Panther Switch 2.0. Front tires normally a red wide, m3 wide, or Groovy's but normally all the wide 4 rib fronts.

I found that any of the above work pretty good for me (except for the driver from time to time)lol. I have had my best runs with the X2000, X3000 or Switches. All seem to work about the same for me. For what ever reason when a few guys get Holeshots working mine don't and I like that tire to.

Hey johnny 19...when we went there a few weeks ago I ran red x-2000's and red taper fronts and they were dialed. I would bring a pair of holeshots front and rear just incase but once the sun started beating down on the track it was all losi tires. Red 7202 ribs work also. This time around I'm gonna bring some red bk bars...I think they will be the hot ticket

That would be really good tire setup. Since we sweep the loose stuff is not too bad for the 2wd mod guys since we run first.

Yeah your car worked great. If it gets dry enough, swept alot, and we get a nice turnout I think it would really help the track come around so red BK bars work.

A few guys tried them with mixed results but just not enough traction when they tried them but it coud some close with a nice turnout. When you guys came down and a few from Vineland showed we had 19 mod buggies that week.

Hey you could be me. C Little rockin the D main. I am actually not that dissapointed granted I didnt drive well but it was my first time there and dam was it tough. Pitstop should be much better for me that track is dialed. Who knows I might even pick up a truck or something so I can race 2 classes.
