Obviously the track has a huge impact on what works and what doesn't. These tires were developed by testing at the Florida state series- all asphalt tracks. The fact that they work on carpet is an added bonus. Until someone tries greens at that track, I think it is premature to pass judgement on the tires' performance.
From what I saw some of the nitros worked and some didn't. They at least had the chance to run what ever tire they liked. I personally didn't think there was a wear problem with the tires. More of a side bite issue, When I get back to SIR I am gonna try adding camber but it will be a tough comparassion to the Portland track. SIR grip is insane.

Being more of a carpet racer, I an anxious to try them on the rug.
