It seems that black/gray and gray are the starting choices. Let us know what you find out. Rat

On a fresh track, run Red, Red/Magenta. When the traction comes up switch to the Black/grey combo.

I have done A-B testing with Black, Black/Grey and Magenta, Mag/Red. I've heard comment that the Mag/Mag/Red combo is too stuck. I can say if you run 19T or stock foam, that would be the case, but not for Mod. I'd done about 3 A-B test on 3 different days, different traction on the rug. Mag/Red definitely has an upper hand on the Black/Grey when it comes to Mod. One thing too is that I found (along with my Jaco 1/12th tries) is that a lot of people think harder tires will wear less, that is not the case with these tires. Black/Grey seems to wear a little faster then Mag/Red, and it just lack that steering I'm looking for. And A-B test shows I'm at least .2 sec quicker with the Mag/Red. If the traction comes up drastically, like Snowbirds, I would venture to Black/Grey.

i bet the higher wear on the blk/grey comes from using more steering to make up for the loss of front bite...

the only ones i have used were the mag-red/mag set on a med bite track, and it worked well for me, with hardly any wear...

Well, during my A-B tests, I leave my setup the same, my radio trims same. The only thing different is a different pack of batts, different time of the day. Not just the front, but the Grey rears wear quicker then Magenta. When I used a durometer on the tires, the shores are pretty accurate on the Mag, Mag/Red as it states on the labels, the Black, Blk/Grey are about 5 higher than what the labels state. I believe it's a different make of compound too, not 100% sure about that though.

I use TQ Red.

How about on your Mod Nitros, I've run a 37 rear with a 40 front, does that combo seem to hold true with the GQ tire?

40/37 is a real good start. Once thing I do notice is that, my GQ 1/8th tires are lower wear then others, but it does require a couple of laps to get the tires warmed up. So be careful out there on your first 2 laps, don't push too hard.

I've tried tire warmers on my foams before you think that might help on the mod nitro, cause there is nothing worse then a loose mod nitro

710, what traction compound are you using in mod nitro on the tires? Also what compounds are you running, I run on a parking lot track that is usually pretty low traction so it sounds like we run on real similiar surfaces...
I tested the 37 shore all around @ Jackson Raceway new sealed track that only had two events track was stilll very green & traction compound was sprayed since it rained early before the races began car had a lot of front bite & great on power steering I am running a 710 with a front oneway locked so it might be a little different on your car. Rear traction was decent not cause of the tires but when I made some chages the car was dialed.
@ the second track I pass a set to two team mate's who run's the same car @ a track in Middletown very rough like parking lot stlye with a lot of divets we trimmed a mm off to ensure even tire wear for the 15 minute A main Booth car's looked way more planted then other cars. Getting into the final minute mark booth car's had the same traction but the other racers who ran nitro shoes lost traction & at the end comparing the Gq to the Nitro shoes & Ellegi's there was a lot more tire left on the GQ'S & almost no tire left on the Nitro shoes & Ellegi's booth brands give plenty of traction but the Gq outlasted in tire wear.
I will give more info as I will be in CT racing www.rcmadness.com trophy race an awesome track with no traction since the last three weeks of no racing due to rain. & also the 35 shore works great testing was done on a MTX3 prospec instantly dialed on a rough track. So good luck to all the Team drivers & looking forward to more A main winnings from everyone
