i have raced on a track with loomy dry/wet dirt, and i found out that the i-beams soft work good. But i noticed on my rc8te truggy maybe its my setup, but it took a lot of rotateing from the rear away felt like it was to tight on the rear.

the jconcepts crosshairs soft work the best on loamy dirt, if you ask me at least i thought so the rear end has looser feel to it also.

i beams soft work good on dry /dusty /loose dirt from my exprience, the jc crosshairs soft are ok on that type of surface .

on what ( killerbud) said about the i-beams are spead to much, and there unstable i think that depends really on what kind of truggy you have, i think there pretty stable on my rc8te yea its not run as a nitro its electric so that could be why.

and also on the weight of the truggy in the wideness of it depends on how stable it will be reguardless.

I found City Blocks on the front, and Bowties on the rear of my Serpent truggy. This setup hooked up great, and still allowed the rear end to rotate around tight turns with ease. It tracked straight and accelerated hard when I punched it out of the turns, without the back end going all wanky. I've also tried City Blocks with Crime Fighters in the rear with favourable results.

I also find that the rounded shape of the Bowties in the rear of my truggy helps prevent traction rolling when I pitch it hard into the corners compared to the flat shape of tires ( like the City Block ) which seem to catch an edge when the track gets blown out.
