New MG / Evinco compounds, whats your experience?

Anyone that’s tried the new Evinco compound this year, what’s your thoughts? Is an Evinco red this year harder /longer lasting than last year or about the same?

Thanks,
Eric

This is second hand feedback that I have heard from teammates, but yes, the new tire seems to be much longer lasting. More tread on the tire, stiffer side walls, but I’m not sure regarding hardness of the compound. Tire wear at Homestead was reported to be quite good, even in the shifter categories. I also heard that the tire is slightly faster than the previous compound, but again, have yet to test personally. I’m really looking forward to trying it out, and am super stoked that NCMP has elected to move to MG for their spec tire. You can expect to see me out there in the shifter class for a handful of KRA races!

We’ve only ran the Evinco Blues, and it was at a track new to us, so not sure how much I have to compare on. However, the Blues are stated to be slightly softer but last longer than the previous version. Some racers ran 7 sessions with them (2 warm-ups, 1 Qualifier, 3 Heats and a Final) on them. We did 6 sessions, and had no drop off throughout the weekend at NOLA for the TSRS that was there.

Our next TSRS race will be the real test, because the track we are going to (Gulf Coast Karters) is really hard on tires, and for a TSRS from Qualifying to the Final (3 heats in between) you can lose at least .75 seconds a lap just from tire wear.
