Need a good tire for my eTruggy
I ran this tire in Silver compound most of the summer. They are awesome in those conditions.

Looking to try these tires as I have heard good things. Typically I run gridiron's 2, and impacts in soft and super soft. What would be a comparable tread to these and compounds?

If its wet, I would suggest Carbides, If its dry, hardpacked, then I like the Microcontact. I run both in Silver compound through out the year. For looser stuff, I run Defenders (impact like)

Default Micro Contacts in my opinion.

I recently tried the Green clay compound Cellblocks on indoor clay in 40-50F degree temps at the HobbyTown USA Hobby Plex facility. Yellow Cellblocks were good with sauce but the Green clay compound was much better and continued to improve after sauce. as fore race line out door conditions I personally prefer Micro Contacts in yellow and silver compounds but they wear much faster than pixels and carbide's. I'm also running an Associated RC8B3.1

Planning a trip down to Zoo City Raceway in North Carolina next spring and summer. Wondering what Sweep tires work well on this track.

I haven't raced there but watched a video and there was quite a bit of dust...and rooster coming from the tires. This makes it kind of tough. I would probably bring Square Armors and the new Whips tire. Possibly Battle Stars. That old school tread is still quite valuable in the right conditions. Hopefully others will respond...
