Default Schumacher Darts and proline Pyramids comparison

Sorry if this has been covered.

I’ve never used either last time raced outdoors it was mini spikes.

What are darts and pyramids like for Astro racing are they similar performance or is one faster than the other?

darts faster
pyramids longer wearing, slower overall in most conditions, less side bite too so car set up needs adjusting

Is there a V2 of the pyramids that are better or is that different prolines?

Having used both, this would also be my conclusion.

But there isn't quite as much in it as Mark's comment might allude. Proline's are definitely a good alternative option, especially for club racing or practice, provided you accept the above caveats.

Pyramids are very quick in certain conditions - biggest advantage is they last so much longer

What compound have you been running and what sort of duration have you been getting Mark?

Both Z3 and Z4 Dan. At least 20 runs, still look new.
