I raced a summer series race there two weeks ago and in a 20 minute
main and 3 minute warmup I wore 2.5mm on the left rear...

hope this helps

Traction is okay...I ran 38s at the last club race there. The real improvement is tire wear, now it's close to nothing! For a 20 minute main I ran 60mm rear and 58mm front...and I coulda gone smaller, but I wanted to be safe.

Thanks for the reply. I hope the track gets back to the way it used to be...high traction and very little tire wear.
