Even after all of these runs the insert looks great and does not appear to be broken down at all. It seems to me like the tires wear the same even with the running change. The failure is always a split on the formed groove even as soon as last week it happened to me.

I love the blues they have made carpet racing my favorite kind of racing due to the level of traction they provide and the amount of runs you can get out of a single set of tires.
The new inserts are a little wider so they don't allow the tire to move around as much. This should cut back on the friction between the tire and the ribs on the wheel. We will be shipping these this week. None are out on the market yet so the only change implemented was the wider belt thus far.
