I have ran bothe RP 30's and 36's at SIR and you don't have to do much for set up change with either tire. The differance will be tire warmers. Bothe will work and work well. How much heat you put into them will be the differance. We ran 36's at the 24 hour enduro and just putting on new tires and running them they would hook up in just a few laps. Without tire warmers.

I ran 30's this last week in 6 minute heats and they Never Faded. Grip was pretty equal the entire run. Car carved really well at high speed into the corners. Practice with either tire because it is all in the prep of the tire.

I was also using FX. Tires are really sensative to compound at SIR. Tweak and Buggy Grip and popular too. I never tried Ground Effect wiht the RP's but the Sorex tires love it.

Good question, and something I actually forgot in my main post. Tire compound is open to any available brand/type.

If you come down for a club race you will see there is a very wide variety used in the pits. Unlike carpet having varing types of compounds on the asphalt surface does not yield a negative effect.

The place for it's size has pretty decent ventilation and you really do not get the Paragon smell since there is nothing for it to really 'soak' into. It's fine.

On the schedule you have open practice on Tuesday, followed by Track Change, does that happen after you close at 6?

Yup! That way we don't close during the day to do the track change and rob a day of practice from everyone. It means a late night for us Tuesday, but that's ok.

Please PM me with any personal concerns like this so I can address them. I don't want to turn this thread into a public debate on the risks of certain traction compounds.

Thanks

I'm assuming you're just automatically going to order up the 10 extra per class for the A-mains?
