It really depends on how your track is set up and how you like your car to handle. For tires I just use Take-Off tires. They come in different compounds so you will have to figure those out for yourself. Ask the fast guys at your track for set up ideas and tires.

I agree. This is probably one of the best setup guides that is in depth but still not way over complicated. It gives you a perspective of how things work too. Our local carpet track's owner hands these out to new guys.

Yeah, debbie was gave a few to me to give to soem of the kids that come in and are lost and confused. Passed out the quick guide one so it's not in depth. It just shows when you change this thing, something happens.

Default Take-off tires ( carpet )

I hear that take-off tires are the ones to get. Racers that use these tires on carpet in my area are using CS-22 in the rear and CS-27 up front. Use the foam insert that comes with the tires also.
