What is the difference between vega yellow and whites, and what if any prepping would be done.
What chemical would be used?

Thank you

Whites are harder. We used to use them on asphalt when they where MBM's and the Yellows were MBS's Once the MCS yellows came out they were better than the whites. I'd be surprised if many guys use them on dirt.

website : vegausa,com/ it has a lot of info. . Chemical prep depends on type of track and its surface (asphalt -dirt) maybe even track rules. take a look further here on Bobs' dirt oval - under tires and asphalt sprint .

I'd would say just the opposite...thins on pavement - or cut thicks.
Thin rubber tires build heat quicker and also dissipate heat quicker.
The thick rubber tires will hold the heat in and continue to climb in temps to the point where your lap times fall off dramatically.
For cold/damp tracks, thick rubber may be better, but even then a cut tire will always be faster from my experience.

Thick’s on pavement.

The thins don’t react the same. If you want a thinner Vega for pavement, cut a thick

Our Medium Rare works well if the track is clean/dry.
Street & Strip Golden Grip if the track is damp/dew on it.
