Yes we run on indoor clay a lot and do our setup devloping in those conditions because they stay so consistant you can really get a feel for a setup change vs chasing track conditions all day. The result is these indoor clay setups tend to have pretty good balance to them and are usually good starting points for other conditions with tire changes of course. I do not change my car much from indoor clay to outdoor dirt unless I go blue groove racing where I will usually bump up the diff fluids and or shock oil depending on outside temps.

Well i come from running onroad and track conditions change all day and we know what to do to maintain maximum control as the traction comes up.
This same track condition is the same at our onroad track
1st heat its realy dusty and dry(even after watering it 5heats before)
2nd round its holding a lil more water temps r coming down traction is coming up.
3rd even better but but now fluff is coming up out of the groove.
Mains high traction with tons of fluff out of groove its tacky wet .
How would u handle these conditions

Yes the SCTE uses 12mm hex but be careful on offsets. What was the "other truck"

slash 4wd stock tires, then the rest were the proline split six rims all in 4wd so they were the same offset all the way around since the 2wd slash has diff offsets from front to rear

Yeah all those will be far too wide on the SCTE. They will phisically fit on the truck but the tires will stick outside the body.

IF the diffs are too light on oil you can diff out and this can lead to inconsistant handling as you dump power to the tire without traction. Thicker front will add some on power steering but take away a little low and make the car more stable. Thicker center will give more forward drive and not dump the power to spin the front tires as much on power.
