Super Soft Panther Raptors have always worked good for me in cold indoor races.

Supersoft grid iron or green 7's. If you like Proline then m4 holeshots.

+1 for super soft Gridirons, and occasionally super soft CityBlocks.

if the track is fresh i go a M3 caliber or supersoft cityblock, and once it groves up i go to M3 holeshot or supersoft grid iron.

M3 holeshots, SS gridirons, Blue sevens, Clay switches and raptors.

Nothin: If you're looking for a tire to run at McCullough's last time I ran a truggy in there I was dialed on M3 holeshots. Switches and sevens work very well too. Haven't tried the gridirons or raptors in there.

For buggy, clay switch 2.0 or pink taper pins work great on clay.

For truggy, I've been told clay boas work on clay, don't have one so don't personally know.

Hot Bodies Pink compound Megabite tires work as good or better good and outlast other brand tires.

Pink megabytes are awesome, they work everywhere and last much much longer than holeshots. Before our indoor track closed we ran bald megabytes with great success when the track was wet. I pretty much only run 2 tire setups for truggy, JC blue crosshairs, and pink megabytes with aka foams.

Hey Jammin, I plan on running down there some, I asked a buddy if he wants to make the trip this weekend . He has to play out the wife before I know. You going to be racing there any time soon ? I started this thread to see if theres a majority vote on any one tire for indoor . Should have known that this will lead to more options than I had to choose from before posting. Now Jessie has me thinking about the Mega Bites.Keep them coming guys. Thanks

No joke, you will be seriously happy with the megabytes, they are also useful on tracks other than indoor unlike some of the choices.

I should be there this weekend, but not running nitro.

The Megabites are also a very good one. Not sure why I forgot about them. Pink Megabites with AKA grooved foam will work great in there.
