4WD helps too

Truck looked better than any time I had it though. Any deals for fellow Leisure Hours racers? Always looking to add to my tire collection

Ray, do you think we might ever see a Talon in short course version? I love the switch 2.0s for both SC and truck. I really like the 1:8 Talons, I'd think that they would be great for SC too.

I hope so! I don't run 1/8 so I have never tried them but the guys who have tried the Talon have raved about how well it's worked. I think the Talon would be an excellent "inbetween" tire. We have the Boa, which is perfect for dusty/low traction and we have the Switch, which is awesome on a "swept/well maintained" surface. The Talon would fit in the middle offering a tire that would do well in both. Many have suggested that the Talon become a production SC tire. I have my fingers crossed!

I was shown an 1/8th Talon at the RCX show and told an SC tire was in the works.

That would be excellent, let's hope.

Ray, do you know when Panther will have the Boa SC available again? I was told last night they're out of stock currently.

Did you ask your LHS? I just checked the online inventory which shows having 950 sets in stock. If your LHS is having trouble getting them please let me know and I will see what I can do to get things sorted asap. Otherwise you can order directly from www.pantherteam.com

All my tires get mounted up with the Proline SC Closed Cell inserts. I've tried the AKA, which seems too hard for SC. I have a set of the newer JConcepts (which you can only get by purchasing JC SC tires) which I plan on trying very soon.

Any feed back with the Boas?

As the season wears on my track is getting more and more blown out. The more open block tread looks like it will cope with all the debris that's getting thrown into the line as track surface deteriorates through out the season. I'm about to drop some dough on tires and right now its a shoot out between the Boas and the Enduros. I may consider getting a set of Boas just for the rear. Any comments?

I don't care much for the Enduros on a blown out track- they work well on hard pack with a little dust on it. I've seen Ray drive with the Boas on an SC10 and an SCRT10 and they looked pretty sweet. I'd already have a set if I weren't practicing with Subcultures (spec tire for Nats). If you have a lot of steering already than the Boas may be overkill on the front, but you'll love them in the rear.

Yea...what Jon said! I haven't tried mixing and matching yet. When the home track is blown out/very dusty I slap on the Soft Boas. When it's dry/clean I use Soft Switchs. I'm sure the Boa rear/Switch front would be an awesome setup. Might try it tonight.

I bought an sc10 on ebay that came with a new set of boa's, not being familiar with Panther, I almost pitched them, so glad I didn't. It's really nice to have a tire that help's cover for my lack of driving skill at the local track.

Thanks for the replies guys. I think I will start with a set for the rear for now. I may end up running Holeshots up front with the Boas in the back when the going gets rough.

Finally got my Boas in, although I could only get the Medium Soft compound. I am racing this coming weekend and will give the Boas a try. The Switches were excellent all the way around on an indoor clay, very grooved track.
