Default explain tire selection vs track condition

ok i am a noob. i won a $25 gift certificate to j concepts this weekend at out short course race. thinking about picking up some tires. i run a jammin scrt10 and a losi 8ight. our track is hard packed...dusty...and has a light film of dust on top around the edges of the turns, just outside of the groove. it is also bumpy. they water it between heats but it doesnt last long. what would be a good buggy or sc tire from j concepts to spend the money on??

also can someone point me in the right direction for what kind of tread pattern you want vs track condition??
thanks guys

I would try Hitmen or Crosshair or even Subcultures for your buggy
And Subcultures for your SCT

Crosshairs when wet, Subcultures when damp or dry and not blown off, Double Dee's when dry and blown off.

As far as SCT go I would go with the Subcultures and the DD's in the green compound.
Part # 3042-02 Subcultures
3043-02 DD's

For 1/8th scale buggy I run on similar track conditions and I mainly stick with Crossbows(Blue compound), Subcultures(Blue&Green) and DDv2(Blue and Green). Crossbows work in EVERY condition. Thats one of my favorite medium blue groove tire, Subcultures work really really well on damp track in the Blue compound, however, the Green will push slightly if the track is mildly damp and hard packed. But if tyhe track gets a little dusty then Green Subcultures are the ticket. DD's are great if the track grooves with some good moisture in it.
Part # 3007V2-02 Green DD's
3034-01 Blue Subcultures
3034-02 Green Subcultures
3032-01 Crossbows

Hope this helps. PM me if you have any other questions.
