Default tires for dirt track

What are some good tires for dirt tracks? I have a set of suburbs which I use for indoor clay racing. I do not like using tires for two different surfaces because I feel it ruins them. That is just my thought and I could be completely wrong.

Hole shots and DD's in super soft rear when I have too much steering I run a harder tire in front . Or something like a suburb (front)

no you cannot run the 22T or 22 buggy Mid-Motor with a full size pack. for them, you are stuck with either a Shorty pack (96mm length) OR saddle packs in Mid-Motor. Rear Motor you can run what you want.
saddle packs weigh around 280 to 300 grams, and the shorty packs are around 200 grams. traction will dictate whats a better choice.

on the 22SCT however, you can run Mid-Motor with a Full length pack, but I think you'll need to get the aluminum battery bar/tray thingy... or drill two holes 10mm forward in the chassis like I have done.
once I get some shorty packs next month, I am definitely going to test mid-motor on my 22T and 22SCT.

I have seen mid motor with full packs in a 22T, I do recall the guy running a mid sized servo and tiny receiver though... It can be done, with some work!

Does anyone know if you can use the 22 rear axles on the 22T? I have a set of aluminum hexes that I want to use but they are for the buggy so they are 1.75mm too short.

I've never tried it, but I probably wouldn't. My guess is that with the axle being shorter, you will have trouble threading the wheel nut on inside the truck wheels. I'd just get the hexes for the truck in aluminum.

Simply, no, they do not fit at all. The 22T's dog bones & axles are both longer, for good reason, to fit the wheel on.

If you have the standard width alum hexes, use them on the front wheels of your 22T. If they are the +.75's or similar, sell them to a buddy & get the right ones for your 22T.

They are longer than the standard hex. Here is a picture of them compared to plastic stock ones.

Right.

Those are not TLR hexes(?), they look like they are made by someone else, they fit, but they are too short to use on the 22T.

Again, while they are cool looking, they are not right for your 22T - and by the looks of them, they are too long for a 22 (no one uses anything other than stock or +.75's - those look way longer).

You may have to chalk them up to a bad purchase and stick with the stock hexes.

I'm going to be trying my hand at Racing this summer, I am looking into getting a 22T or the 22. I am having a hard time deciding if I should buy the RTR or the Kit. I've never raced or anything of the sort so I plan on running the Novice class and the stock class. I've also never built anything. I just have mini's and Micros.

Does the track run both classes on a regular basis? Reason i ask is if lets say the buggy class races every weekend but the truck class is a hit and miss, I'd go with the 22. If not then the 22t would be very good as a starting point for you.

The directions are not bad on either kit and should be pretty easy to follow. if you do run into any issues this site is very good at helping with anything you might need.
