If the temp exceeds 90*F then use cs 32 with paragon FX. If it is in the 70-80 range, use cs27 no compound. If it is the 50-70 range, use the cs27 w/ paragon FX. Use CS22 for anything below 50 with no traction compound.

The reason for traction compound is not to get the fastest start, but to heat up the tires faster. When you run cs22's the tire takes a few laps to heat up, but with paragon ground FX2 and possibly tire warmers, you can get the traction up to mid race temp. within half a lap.

a question related to this topic..
when i try to swap my front and rear tyres after running them for a while, my car's just go crazy immediately, very weird handling and spin out all the time even at low speed.

I'm usnig the same tyres and wheels at all the four corners (Sorex 28R, medium inserts), 1 degree camber front and rear and the car handles like a dream before i swap the front and rear.. but it becomes a nightmare after i swap them. Nothing i do can fix this problem until i put the tyres back to the original position. I've tried it a few times and the result was the same and my friends told me they have the same experience as well. Can anyone tell me what was the reason? maybe the insert got deformed to a certain shape or what? or it's just the rear tyres get used to be their "home position" and don't like it when they move to a new home?

You can't expect good results with rotating tires after several runs in one position. Either run them in their same positions every race, or rotate them after every run starting right after you buy them.

Default Sorex 36-R

I had heard the Sorex 36-R was the choice for hot summer days
(ambient 90+F degrees) With the CS-27 being a bit slower and wears a bit better?

the cs27 is the most popular because it is the most versitle. You can run it in the hot temps, or even in cold weather. The 22's, 32, and 37 compounds are for a more specific tune. The pro's will run 27's in hot weather because either that is the hand-out tire, or it will be really fast for one or two runs. The 32 is better suited for mid-summer temps. The 27 is a spring and fall tire. The 22 is a early to late winter tire.

Tamiya Tire Warmers.

They use a film heating element and heat up instantly all over evenly when plugged in. Despite the instructions for 7.2V, I have used them plugged straight to 12V and they work fine (of course hotter).

Other warmers usually use nichrome wires which only heat up along the wires.

If you have the cash, the Yokomo Pro Tire warmer is prob best, but its bulky. Just think of it as the Turbo 35 GFX of tire warmers.

Are the pre-mounts a good route to go?
And where is the best place online to order these from?
Thanks
