Thumbs up Favorite Indoor 1/8 scale Tire

Seems 1/8 scale indoor has gotten a big push, so what's everyone's favorite all around clay tire for these heavier cars?

AKA Typos work very well if the track is damp.

This is one of those things where you're going to get 50 different answers. So I will add more...

At our track, we see sweep micro contacts, ions, rattlers, and now typos...all in respective clay compounds except the sweep, silver, as the popular 1/8 buggy tires. Barcodes and beams, not so much. Our track has alot of clay it so it tends to stay moist through the day.

..but that's okay. Like how they are describing the surface their local track is and what they had luck with. …even compared to a previous tire on same surface, and setup. Thanks O.S.!!

would be nice to detail the type of track you guys are racing on when recommending a tire

I'm in the same boat as the OP and did a little thread that might help

I'm racing in 3 different type of clay tracks and this is what I find to be working for me .
Note> I'm running 8th scale super lite (5.6 lbs)
Low traction moist clay - Typo/clay
Med traction moist clay - Barcode/clay
Hi traction clay - Ion/super soft

Pulse, that's a sick thread, thanks Guess this is attempting to dub but ruling out all but 1/8 scale only with heavier contact patch.

I feel this class is going to be huge thanks to 4x4sc & 1/8 lite but see track owners taking tire selection pretty serious and even including a bar type tire only rule due to safety for the marshals of indoor's heaviest class.
