Tire Suggestion
 
Ok I'm wondering what tire everyone suggests for this track
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFHGf...eature=related

I was thinking AKA IBeams, or Cityblocks.

Anyone have any other suggestions? I'll be racing there for the first time Sunday.

1/8 scale truggy

do you live close? if so ask the fast guys who run your truck. thats what i would do

From that video it looks like Cityblocks are your best bet, especially if they run it dry like that. Medium compound most likely unless they run at night or it's not too hot, then Soft might be the ticket.

I would probably run Cityblocks, but anymore that is about all I run. I have some Holeshots and Bowties in the tire bag, but rarely pull them out.

The Cityblocks are nice because they act like a small pin tire on the hardpack, but have the bigger pins "inside" to help you when you get in the fluff.

Also the foams in AKA are VERY firm... they seem to work very well... not suie exactly why that is though.

Soft IBeams - my most favoriate tire

I like I beams in the rear and city blocks up front. Soft compound works all but when it gets hot they tear up fast. Also give the new proline calibers a try. I haven't tried them yet, got them on order, but I have been told hey are awsome on dry tracks.

Thanks everyone for the kick-ass answers.

I ordered a set of

(SOFT) City Blocks
(SOFT) I-Beams
and pre-mounted Holeshots.

I got the Holeshots for Hot Rod Hobbies, and the Ibeams/Cityblocks for the track everyone saw above.

I cant wait to race next Sunday, maybe someone will be there to take pics record video and I can let everyone know how I did.

Awesome! I've been meaning to try these but Proline does not have a tire chart like AKA so its been difficult to know what tire works where.

Thanks again!
