Last year was medium, maybe a bit over at best. But judging from the carpet that was put in at the Gate and the traction levels there, it should be normal Cleveland again this year

_pilot_ I'm runnin' the G6 in Clevland, I'll probably bring a DNA with me in case of low traction. DNA is great on low grip tracks, just use a standard wing, not the one with the chevrons molded into it, they break up the air flow causing less rear downforce.

John Warner What's everybodys body of choice for this years festivities?

DNA?
Alfa?
Stratus?
????
I think it depends on what car you're running and what class. I tried a G6 on a T2 and hated it. Alpha is a great all around body for any car. DNA seems to work better on the new T2's, I tried one on a Corally and it seemed to make the car twitchy when not under power. Ran a Stratus on a T2 as well, felt pretty good in stock. Personal preference as to how you like your car to feel.

we had more grip after one weekend of club racing on brand new CRC fast trak carpet with paragon then vegas with jack the slipper crap. cleveland should be fine. it wasn't as crazy last year as it was years ago with traction rolling the first day but it had more grip then the tounge of a green frog.

It's really quite simple....

If you allow Paragon you will have mad grip, if you do not you will have mad slip.......

Every traction compound works well on a nice Paragon groove, but nothing seems to work consistently in the absence of Paragon, this has been true for years, with the only exception being Zip Free. But Zip Free smells worse than Paragon ,and lingers in the air just as long IMO.

Long live wintergreen!!!
