Vega yellow thicks vs thins

I could be wrong but I believe thins for good biting and hotter weather and thicks for low bite or colder weather. But im no expert.

As said above I have and use both but at our local crawdad dirt track I like my thick’s. I have used the thins when it’s hard and dry and gets a tad dusty. Really the only real difference I notice is the thick’s tend to roll over a bit. Where the thins you can set up for the corner and it will grab and go the thick’s tend to literally grab then you will feel a slight roll into the rubber before it’s planted and goes. Our track is pretty rough and abrasive on tires so I tend to go with the thick’s usually.
We prefer the thick right sides just about always - then cut them thin to put our profile on them.
Doesn't matter if it's dry & dusty no bite, wet and slick low bite, pavement, or dirt; they'll get cut.

Do you have a specific cut that you prefer over different track conditions (one cut for dry and a different cut for wet) or do you run the same cut for all ? I’ve always ran the thick Vegas uncut and soft as warm butter lol
Thick and soft work well for damp tracks.
When you get on dry slick and dusty, it'll take a different tire.
If it bites up, then yet another tire.
You can make any tire (and/or profile) "work," but some will work much better than others.
