Ellipse - silver compound (fit fits 1/8th Buggy
The Ellipse, named after the center bar built into the tread, is a compliment to successful tires such as the Dirt Webs and Bar Codes. This "Web" style tire was built to compete on smooth, high-grip indoor and outdoor surfaces. The center section of the tire utiliizes a diamond "home plate" footprint to provide massive forward bite and increased longevity. The web of extensions are directional, giving the racer the ultimate tune-ability.
Jason Ruona explains, "The Ellipse has a compact carcass, it allows the driver to attack high-speed sections with more comfort. The "home plate" and connected web of tread has more stability high-speed and holds the tire together for today's high-powered vehicles. Connected tread wears significantly better which is useful racing indoors where a racer can break-in and race with the same pair all weekend."
The Ellipse has shown success in the hands of Ryan Maifield, taking TQ and 1st place in the 1/8th buggy class at the 2018 and 2019 ROAR 1/8th E-Nationals. The compound of choice for most indoor events, the exclusive silver compound, has shown to produce consistent results for racers week after week. Included in each package, the Dirt-Tech closed cell inserts are known for their durable nature and gray color, complete the race tuned package.
