The Tires used for 1/8 Are as Hard as You can Stand to Run. Ive run 38 all around and even 40 in the rear. The track has plenty of grip. A harder shore will probably do you better.....

Thumbs up

GUINT1,
The last Race there / the 1st video posted on this thread I ran 35's
all the way around for the 1st 2 quals which seemed to give the car
a little bit more steering / less push ... ran 18 5:04 then 18 5:02. I
then tried Fast T 37's for my final qual and it tended to push a little
bit and ended up with a 18 5:10. Must run 37 or 38's for the main!
I've ran the last 3 races / 40 minute mains there on 37's.

Hope this helps!

Terry Brown

The Fast Quals have been run by Scotty Barrera & Brandon McNally around
19 5:14 to 16. We'll have to see what Sal Difazio & Scotty Kimbrough put down.
I saw them both on the signed up list.

See ya!

Got the exact Fast Quals .... Brandon McNally holds the track record
@ 19 5:05. Jeremy Cupps ran a 19 5:05 just 24/1000 of a second off
of Brandon.

Take care!
