I believe they are soft, blue, do the part numbers show you what compound they are?

Finally started building my 22T last night. This is my first Losi kit in a few years, I have always been primarily an AE user - although I have built the XXX-T MF2 and the XXX-T CR. I have been very impressed with the kit so far, the quality is outstanding and the build has been very easy so far. Parts are nicely molded, and the aluminum chassis is a thing of beauty. Just wanted to say I like the direction Losi is headed and look forward to finishing this kit.

Default Tire choice for outdoor

This is my indoor truck, race on carpet and clay.

Would like to hit the outdoor track for some practice, but tire choice is always an issue here.

I am in southwest wyoming. Track is very hard packed and dusty. Right now temps are in the 90's. If anyone knows SW Wyoming, it is very dry and windy. hot during the day and cools off at night.

I was thinking about running hole shots or snipers in the rear, maybe burbs on front?

On my 1/8 scale and Ten-SCTE, I run blockades all around.

What are your thoughts for tires?

We have the same conditions here in Texas, but the temps are even hotter. The tire of choice has been the Losi Ifmar and the HPI Ground Assault.

You must be in west texas? Those ground assaults have a nice large square pin. How do holeshots/snipers work down there?

I recommend them, its the best of all worlds. First off you get quality parts made in America by a lover of RC Cars
( TLR) next you get the durability and strength with zero binding.
Then placement of added weight is Optimal. And for the price you have enough left over for some Tires... or Beer.

I think I will go with M3 Holeshots one all four.

The track will be cool and dry in the morning (m2), but we will water between heats and temps will climb quickly. Been looking for a set of tires that I can run all day while track conditions change. I should also grab a set of M2 compound for the rear, but this is for one - possibly two races this summer. I can't afford tires... really! We normally do not run ST outdoor, only big events.

the Proline calibers work well, thats what I run at my local track. they have pretty good grip everywhere, and decent tread life.
I havent tried them on the front, JC carvers and PL edges work on the front currently. I plan to pick a few pairs so i can do some more testing. everyone is running ribbed front tires on ST and some buggies run ribbed tires too.
