ProLine 1092 H13's?

If this has been discussed already, I apologize right up front, but sedan racing in the Central US is a summer-only thing, as all we race on is parking lots in my area...

The tires that have always worked for me were ProLine 1092 H13's....

However, ProLine no longer shows them on their website and they appear to be discontinued...

First -- have they really been discontinued?

Second -- Local recommendations are to go to Sorex C-27's... For unprepared concrete parking lot racing in ambient temps ranging from 70-100 degrees F. (track temps of 70-134 degrees F.)...

I'd welcome input from other racers...

Thanks in advance.

Tom, we have raced a parking lot track here in Wichita for the past 3 years. From our testing we have found the Take Off Tires work great. The sorex do have good bite but the tire wears very fast on the harsh parking lot type surface. We had a AE sponsored guy here locally and he tried the Proline tires...he has now switched to take off. The 27 and 32 take off work great here in Kansas during the summer...with the 32 being the choice for the heat. Guys have run the stock insert tires or some just but the premounts. I like 32 take offs with yokomo med inserts.

Are you going to Chilli in a few weeks? A large group from here is attending and I am looking forward to the great race that always is!

Jeff

Jeff -- thanks for the response... The Take-Off premounted tires sure look like a real deal, and locals are just starting to "discover" them, so not much data to fall back on. It's nice to get some from other central US racers... Looks like I need to order some... I know some have tried the 27's, but with the mid summer heat, I suspect 32's will be necessary in July/August..

Regarding Chilli -- YEP! I have my motel room reserved, and have made plans for taking Friday off (practice day) and Monday off (recuperation!)... I'll probably run Masters Stock Truck and Stock Truck -- handouts make that a bit expensive, but I'll take all the track time I can get with my truck

here in memphis the track temps. soar to 115 to 150 range on a unpreped surface. the premounted take off's work great,27's and 32's . also sorex 32's and 36's and even 40's in some extreme heat. i never had any luck with pro-line tires at our tracks here.

Tom,


When running on brushed concrete you should run a firm insert with little air gap, as compared to running on aspahlt which ususally requires a med insert.

If you run a med. insert on concrete the grip level goes away fast and tire wear is much bigger. But-the convenince of not mounting tires may out weight this for you and your local racers!!!

at the reedy race in socal a couple of weeks ago, the control tire was take-off 27's

the track ranged from 75-138 degrees and the tires worked fine.

at my home track we also use take-offs as a control tire, and my home track ranges from 50-130 degrees (sometimes even in the same day) so we see the full range of take-offs 22, 27, 32...

Default ProLine 1092 H13's?

Not too many racers I know run Prolines anymore.

Sorex and Take-Off's are the Tires of choice.

Sorex 36R's provide the most Grip in the widest temperature range out of all the Sorex compounds. Leave 40R's for the Gas Cars.

Take-Off's are THE Tire to run on Concrete, NOTHING has worked better over the years and they still work good on Aspkalt too.
The 27CS & 32CS should cover just about any track temperatures you will normally encounter in the Summer.

Now I just need to find a racer who's been to a CS-27 "handout" race and has a bunch of tires to sell cheap!

Default Handout Tires

Actually at $30-$35 for a set of 4 PRE-mounted Take-Off's, they are a bargain.
