Default Truggy tire choice.... on outdoor track.. confusing conditions.

My local track has just redone their offroad track. Last year they ran crimefights or "bowfighters". Once in a while bowties.

The new track has elevation changes, allowing for some parts to stay good and moist and others to be SUPER dry and slick.

My first try was with bowtie's. Good forward bite but once they started to slide they were all over the place.

Next has been crimefighters i barrowed. They worked better but the guys with bowties and GRP cubics could rip coming out of a corner and get alot of bite. BUT my crimefighters seemed to handle the technical sections much better.

SO... i have heard good things about panther gators. And over the winter during electric offroad i switched to panther tires and loved them.

Is there a general idea of the handling characteristics compared to similiar tires?

Thank you very much ahead of time for any input.
Semi Retired.
