I haven't run VTA tires on rug before. I'm guessing worn tires work better?

Mine is Sept. 19th! That's why I got clearance from the Tower to come to the Southern NATS so easily! "What do you want for your Birthday?" Answer: "VTA racing in Nashvile!"

Depending on traction, but usually no. I prefer to run newer tires, but they do need a bit of breaking in. IMHO, if the grip is high, newer tires are better, if grip is down, an older/more worn in set can be better. Once the tread is looking a bit thin and the edges of the tire start getting a bit rounder, I usually grab a new set and throw the ones I'm taking off in a bag for asphalt season.
