Woohoo 1st question!

Ok, I just picked up an L3 with the L4 conversion off of Ebay. It comes with Green Rears, and I think 1 red, 1 purple, and maybe 2 blue fronts. I will have to double check.

Anyway, what tires do you guys run and could anyone give me a general direction the color ratings as far as hardness and other differences? I know about as much about oval as I did 5 months ago about touring which is exactly jack and crap lol. But there is alot more sources of info out there on touring than there is oval. That I have been able to find anyway.


Thanks,
Eugene G.

to run 4 cell stock you can run a number of tires. a good starting point would be 4 purples. as for a tire chart it varies between manufactors such as trc and jaco I personally like TRC tires. the jaco break easy and the foam peals off the rim.

you can get a tire chart off Trinity's website you need to go here

bsr tires info,

Green 30+/-
Medium compound recommended on medium traction carpet tracks.

Blue 50+/-
Medium/harder compound, recommended on extremely high traction carpet tracks and on asphalt tracks.

White 30+/-
Soft compound, recommended for rear tires on low traction carpet tracks. Works well in modified racing on the rear.

Gray 35-40
Medium compound recommended on medium traction carpet / abrasive asphalt tracks. Low wear / longer lasting.

Pink 30
Soft compound recommended on low traction asphalt tracks and as the inside front or rear on low bite carpet tracks.

Double Pink 35
Slightly firmer pink, recommended on low traction asphalt tracks and more abrasive tracks.

Purple 40
Medium/hard compound recommended on high traction asphalt or carpet tracks. Low wear / longer lasting.

Double Purple 45
Hard compound recommended on high traction asphalt or carpet tracks. Low wear / longer lasting.

Red 50
Hardest compound recommended on high traction asphalt tracks. Good for right front. Lowest wear / longest lasting.

Eugene G- Sounds like it has Spec tires on it. If you're going for the "El Cheapo" route on the car,the Spec rubber's a good start! But most,if not all,of the stock guys stick to the good rubber.
What class are ya planning to run w/that car?

Shawn-New enhancements? Hopefully more racin' & raggin' than complaining! lol

George,
I plan on starting in 4 cell stock in a couple of weeks. I should have the car tomorrow and then a few weeks practicing with it before trying a race out. I am looking for some more fun besides the TCs. :) Depending on how much fun/how easy I pick it up will decide where I go from there, lol.
