    Triton to Recon

    Considering going to a Recon from our Tritons--currently have a '12 and a '15 Triton---driver is 6'6" 240#-super hvy ---just looking for a general idea as what will be different and what will be the same as far as setup and tire requirements to expect. Primarily race a 1/8 mils semi banked track that gets better as the night goes on--T3s. Pm if you want. Thanks for any and all input. John

    I too would like some info on this. I've heard that the recon is more tire picky with tires than the triton. I'm running at patriot speedway, in a 425 weight class, with el tires.

    Interesting, because I had thought the Recon was less tire sensitive .

    I have had both and preferred the triton over the recon. There are a lot of people who say the opposite though. I would say that if you like the triton, to stick with it. If you are looking for a change, try the recon. No matter what chassis, you will need the tires right to win

    From what we have seen over the last year and a half is that a Recon with all setup and tire variables close is already closer to the "sweet spot" speed wise than the Triton. However, the Triton will get to the "sweet spot" with making bigger adjustments when off tire wise and hence why a lot of people who liked the Tritons still do over the Recon. The Recon is less tire sensitive in getting around the race track in general, but more tire sensitive in finding the last .1 on the stopwatch.
