I recommend the K20 radials in the rear, with 30 slick up front. You can try 40 radials if you want more entrance steering, or 40 slick if you want to dial down some steering. The track tends to favor front end bite, so a more stable chassis setup with aggressive front tires or aggressive setup with a front tire with less traction may be the best approach for the surface.

Shafiq and Tommy have been liking the 40 slicks in the front. I like the LM 30 trued flat in the front, but my car is 94mm, so a little more on throttle steering is desireble, I also lowered the steering angle more than I am used to, roughly 55 endpoint on my radio.

I have not had a chance to test any other tires besides the Kyosho due to what I have in stock. I am not sure how the PN or Marka tires will work on the carpet, but it is open for modified. Hopefully Tommy can test some PN tires on his next visit and let us know how traction is with them.

I plan to try some PN tires on race day in mod... dont have any at the moment.
i use the same tires from RCP.i did not even change a setup from Maryland race, ones your tires get warm up let the fun two times on the track i have learned its smooth as glass. The PN tires and Marka tires work well have to feel it out to your driving style.

Oh man yes! Will be absolutely open to once again getting help with the setup and not from being knocked my 1/10th into the rear to get the diff completely taken care of like in the old ALS race (which was still absolutely amazing!).

PM me your number if you don't mind too.
