Don't do that lol. Youll get lots of tire roll and you may flip resulting in too much traction. Try Jaco blue rubber. Traction for days and good run time

One of the tracks I race on has very very little traction - like an ice rink some days. Do you think running no insert may improve traction at that track

The only time I have ever run without inserts was using mini-pins on a frosty tarmac track.

Worked quite well as I recall.
