Default Short Course on road tire selection.

Thanks for the help. What do people run tire wise for SC on road racing. I was looking at the Street fighters.

Carpet or Asphalt OnRoad? The PL Prime works well as a rubber carpet slick, for pavement, your guess is probably as good as anyones. The key will be getting tires bad enough to not traction roll every corner.

Low as possible, stiff as possible, + skill... sounds like fun actually
