They're probably running sorex's instead of the TO27's that all the big races in the states use now.

If you are going to race the TITC, the tires all been by Ride, Thailand. The tires are 36 compound with Ride orange inserts and Ride rims. What we did here(not to make them last longer)was put Paragon on and bake them in any tire warmer. They last about 2 good runs. Then after that it's all practice tires. In stock, they last a bit longer. Remember that the air temp is in the 90's so the track it very hot!

The handout tires at the TITC are aweful, not too bad on their first run, pretty bad on their 2nd, and pathetic on the 3rd. If you crashed it was worth bringing the car in just in an effort to save the tires.
