Default Stadium truck on carpet?

Any other carpet off road tracks running stadium truck? If so what tires are you guys using? Only thing that I can find online that seems like it would work is the Schumacher tire. We got an awesome new track here in Idaho and some of us want to bust out some trucks!

Yeah, unless the rules require slicks, you want the Schumacher tires. MM and a gear diff will be pretty much necessary as well.

A club in my area has been doing this for over a decade. They run foam (look up "Gone Bananas" on eBay). Gear diff & mm aren't that necessary. Ball diffs are very durable, especially when paired with a correct slipper.

Checked out a listing. For one money, those tires are a steal!

Here is Gone Bananas Racing Skinz retech info...

You can also find him on Facebook.

Check with you track first to see if they will allow foam tires. They have a huge advantage in lap times and they won't tear up the carpet like a pin tire.
