Guys...I can't make up my mind. Help me out here...
I only have enough cash to burn on just a set of tires. Despite some newer SC tires from AKA and Hot Bodies, I will just narrow my options between these two :
Jconcept Goosebumps and Proline Calibers SC
My intended usage is pure track running and racing, no bashing.
Here's my local track condition :
- Climate : Tropical
- Ambience : 75*F to 90*F all year round (obviously we don't get snow here LOL..just some torrential rain)
- Surface : hard compacted dirt/soil. During the dry season it's very dusty, due to the top soil drying out to a fine powder. But the lower soil remains compacted and slightly damp. During the wet season, the fine powdery surface becomes very damp and rather sticky in a form of dirt chunks, found all over the skids and chassis nooks after each run.
- I don't know what to call this type of soil, but if the track is left unused for an extended period of time (during heavy rainy season), grass will thrive and starts to grow in the middle of the track, fast. The soil is enriched with nutritious substance for plants i guess.
Here's a pic of my local track during the dry season, a month after the rainy season.
As you can see patches of grass growing from previous rainy season. I was the first to hit the track then, obviously the track hadn't been mowed, probably the keeper didn;t even bother, since previously nobody showed up at the track (I thought the Slash was supposed to be waterproof ?? )
I'm running 2wd Slash on 2s 5200 Lipo and 8.5t 4000kv brushless motor.
So if you any experience with either the Goosebumps and Calibers, or preferably both, which ones would you think suit my track better? Please state your reasons too.
