Any pics of the tires after a few runs?
I have read that you use VHT, but how to you thin it and with what? and how much do you spray on the whole track?
What do most guys there use on their tires for traction? warmers?

sorry for all the questions, but its been a while since ive run on VHT

No tire pics available at the moment.

Yes, we do use a 50/50 VHT/Methanol. The amount used can vary a bit. However, I try to keep it light. The bite is naturally high. I see just about every blend of tire spooge being used and yes some guys are using warmers.

Will you have the traction compound also by Sweep?
Tower Hobbies has the Sweep Tire Cleaner, Z1 Traction Compound and Z2 Compounds he are the stock numbers.

MMRC2302 Tire Cleaner
MMRC2303 Tire Traction Z1
MMRC2304 Tire Traction Z2

Z1 and Z2 contains the oil which is used for mixing Sweep tires rubber
material. so they can soak into any type of tires very well as well as Sweep
tires.
They can be used formulas like Red and Blue sap and also very good as tire
conditioner.
They also can be used as first treatment before using Acute Asphalt fomular,
This combination makes high traction on most of asphalt tracks.

Muchmore Korea

If by "tomorrow" you mean Saturday, you guys can stay and run as late as you want. I will keep it open. If you did mean Friday, the track is not open durring the week. The track gets very dirty with pine needles, bark, and stuff. Its just not affordable to clean it without a guarantee of revenue. (labor, fuel, time, maint)

The shop however will be open until 6pm. I can stay over a bit if you guys need to get some stuff before Saturday morning.

Default Bowling

Bowling Aley on the same road as track less than 1/2 mile away. Probably between your Hotel and track depending on where your staying.
