Do you have any pics of the layout? What tires work, when dry, or wet

I've heard that you run it wet for the mains, any chance you'll leave it dry if it grooves up?

Fast guys are running various tires with good results. Our dirt tracks tend to put a little loam on them during the day rather than blue groove.

At Johns Track, during the day fast guys have been running AKA Med City Blocks, Med/Soft Panther K2s, M3 Bow/Fighters, M3 Calibers. At night the moisture comes up and AKA guys switch over to Soft City Blocks. I dont believe anyone has run the AKA IBeams at Johns yet. At other tracks, they liked them too.

Track Pics at www.thundervalleyrcraceway.com

There are a couple of small changes from the pics and videos on the site.
