PVC works like a charm but you need to apply it to both inner cap surface and tire surface. It works wonders on foams! That Gorilla glue dries hard but it does bond well to any clean surface.

Greys? What da? I wouldn't use greys unless its high temp outside. They won't stick in mild temps. Be smart Cake and stick with what works.

Sorry I must laugh at the gray idea myself. Ps and XXPs are the way to go.

If it is G's plus one on that statement Lead. They won't stick. P's or Mags will only work for rears. Anything softer will cause traction hops. Firmer will not provide enough traction your searching for. I agree with DT stick with what works and go with what other drivers are racing with.

This time of year I wouldn't use anything but 25 shore unless the temperature is higher than 70*. If I was to race stock it would be different. I would go with the hardest I could find and run those all the way around to decrease your lap times.

The hotter the outside temp the harder tire you can get away with. 75 or below I'll run my softest compound which would be whites... 75 to 85 would be perfect for pinks or a harder compound if you drive well.. Now 85 or higher I'll use the firmest I have in my bag. All these suggestions work for me but ever one has different driving styles.
