Default Track advice: what do I do with this?

My Hoosiers R7 after 4 HC at COTA. Same pattern on the front tires. T16-18 full of marbles just before pitting in.



1. Leave it as is. It will go out after couple of laps.
2. Remove it with some tool, scrapers
3. Drive on street or parking lot to get rid of it?
3. Other?

Thanks!

What's the concern? The clag? If so I choose #1.

Exactly. Just the clag, how long to get rid of it, best way to manage first laps.

Looks like nothing really to do with it then, just drive right?

Like others said, the clag on the inside will go away after two warmup laps.

But you do want to take a closer look at your outer shoulder--there appears to be slight signs of fender rub. Could just be the angle of the picture?

Spot-on, there's a slight fender rub on the fronts as they are about 17 mm wider than MPSC2. I'm going to raise the front 5 to 7 mm.

Go to home depot get a paint scraper and a heat gun. Lightly heat up the tire and you can scrap the clag off.
