If I may chime in with a question. I'm looking at running clones on my local 1/4 midget track. Concrete corners, asphalt straights. Inquiring about a good tire program suggestion. Looking for something spec, low cost. No one's running karts at these tracks around here at the moment, so we're looking to just get going. I was thinking EL cause they are cheap. Any help is appreciated.

You might look into Vega Reds for a cheap spec tire as well.
Vega Yellows are prime tires on most pavement tracks - It's hard to compete with them.
The Hoosier A40 comes close at times and would be a good choice also, if you can get a spec tire deal established with them.
