I am not sure if there is a true gauge that a person can abide by on what tires to use at certain track temps. I think alot depends on how abrasive the surface is and how much rubber/tire solution has built up. We race on an indoor concrete track that is smooth but abrasive. We went by the guidlines that several of the tire mfgs have posted but we found our cars totally bolted to the track. They were too soft for the amount of bite we have. I know that when our track was in the high 40's to low 50's we had great luck with the Sorex 28s and HPI 27s but when the track temp rose to high 50's low 60's we had to change to the 32's/33's. Right now with the track temp being 61deg the 32s are working great but some people are having good luck with the 36's. I think the best thing to do is look at some of the fast cars and see what they are using and go from there. The same set of tires will not work the same on any two cars. Car setups change things alot as well as driving styles.

keep in mind there is ambient temp,track temp and tire temp..

a CS22 tire is 22 celcieus wich is ruffly 72F.... so that has to be.

Perhaps the temp rating on a tire is to what tempurature they work best at. As in if the track temp is 20C factor in tire spin track abrasion and you come to find you need a 28C tire or possibly a 32.

I run electric on carpet and we use TAKE OFF rubber tires. In compounds of CS22 CS27 and higher. Most run CS22 all round some use CS27 in the front CS22 in the rear. Considering carpet layed on concrete floor must have a temp of under 20C the higher temp tire choise seems to be the right way to go.

I did not read every page, but if it was already mentioned, sorry for the double post. Team Sorex USA

Check out their Micro track. They just finished doing a 3 hour enduro race. The winning car did like 24+ miles in the 3 hour time span.

The 3 hour enduro was crazy. It was 3 man teams and each driver went for about 1/2 hour at a time. I had such a headache after my shift from watching that tiny car go around, 7.5sec laps for 30 minutes.

I run the Luna Asmo motors excusively now in mod TC and I love them. They're handwound by Mr. Ishizuka, who in the past has wound motors for Atsushi Hara and other top Japanese drivers. The motors deliver a ton of torque so you can gear up a tooth or two from your normal gear ratio and still keep the bottom end. You can find more info about them at www.teamsorexusa.com or email me at [email protected]

Matt,
I have 2 Sonic 2's (10x2, 10x3) that Ruben sent me and a Luna 10x2 (from Billy) and to be honest, the Luna really isn't much faster than the Sonic 2's. (I should mention that the Sonic motors are exceptionally fast for Sonic 2's) The biggest diference I saw was efficiency. Last year my mod batts were the blue panasonics and I had to watch the gearing for run time cause we run 5 min mod heats here. With the Luna motor I could definately gear a little more aggressive and still make run time. I'm definately a fan of Luna motors, but I really wish Mr. Ishizuka would start using the top can motors since I've had my best luck out of them. I just don't care much for the new Ti based can. It makes good power, but we've had a few duds. One 11x3 we got was a flat out pig. I have a Wimpy 15x3 that is faster than the Ti 11x3- no kiddin. And then to add insult to injury, it dropped a magnet in a regional qualifier. I suppose that left a bad test in my mouth.

Matt - What sorex insert should I use with Sorex tires in stockton? I'm hoping to make it down there before they go back to the asphalt.

Jack- they're all running CS27s and CS medium inserts with the Cross wheels because the carpet NAts are in 3 weeks. Normally they run HPI reds. I would try the Yokomo thin firm or thin medium if you have a LOT of traction. I ran that set up in Orlando and it was awesome.

However, the 19 turn winner was running 24/20s and Echo yellows. He undoubtedly had the most awesome set up. Ron Atomic is his name and he' a friend of mine. He also set the fastest laps in stock- but he traction rolled in the main. He owned that track.

I was running Sorex Firm 'A' inserts just before we switched to the take off tires. They were very good.
