I run R35 F and R30 Rear on Black carpet. Ive not ran gray carpet in a long time though.

C40F/C35R or C35F/C30R is what we ran at RSD on grey carpet. S compound was slower. R was not out yet.

I'm a fan of S35 front and S30 rear, or S35 front and rear for grey carpet applications (modified class).

S compound feels more aggressive than R compound generally. I haven't run C compound tires in a long while.

Ordered two sets of R35 to try out Mod/13.5T. Been a week now and shipping still says "USPS awaiting package" sent them an email through website and no reply yet... Any idea what's going on?

Whatever happened? I'm in the same situation now waiting on spec tires. Not replying to email or FB message. Not sure if I should wait or have PayPal reverse the charge...

Really just looking for how they compare to the S and R compounds. I ordered a set to try next weekend.

How is the wear of the X compared to R 35?

On medium grip black carpet with a mild Mod setup. Doubt I'll ever actually race Mod just play around with it on days we don't have enough for spec 1/12.
