wyd,
We run Asphalt/Foams during the summers here. The track is being constructed this weekend I believe. He'll probably have some answers for you soon.

Brian - I ran jaco purples all 4 corners and TRC magenta front or purples and purples rear outside. Works well when the track is clean!

Track temps should be higher this weekend, so you might be able to get away with Sorex 24R's or takeoff 27's if you want to try running rubber. The foam soaks up too must of the dusty and makes the tire slide more. Rubber might be the answer till that track is prepped.

Cool. I was going to try my indoor tire set up 1st with Jaco D. Purples on the front and Jaco purples on the rear. If that is not enough steering then I will go for purples all the way around. I might and I mean I might pull out the one way to try.

The track is big enough for a one-way. You don't need to brake at all, unless some rookies mess up on the straights and you have to get around them.

I have alot of stuff to try. The one way, a little stiffer oil in the car instead of the 40wt I have now, and I want to go to a longer front camber link setup this week. Wow I think I will be busy.

Wyd,

No asphalt yet. Test and tune is next weekend at our "parking lot" track. It is not very smooth and is a giant tire truer I will be sure to post any set up info I find........ I had my TC3 absolutely dialed outside so I have a pretty good idea on set up already....
