What tyres are everyone going to use radials or the slicks?

whatever they are on the car?

I have got some S grips on order with Time Tunnel but they are on backorder at the moment :roll:

Googling the three part numbers on Eastbournes rules; they all appear to be treaded Radial tyres opposed to slicks. I assume they are just different compounds.

Hmm not sure what would be best. The thing is on carpet you wont need more grip as I rekon they're gonna grip roll

Everyone I know runs the radial tyres. The slicks are a smaller diameter and the speed difference (loss) is very noticeable over the treaded radial versions.

Looks good shawn :D I was hoping i'd be the only one with the black wheels, i managed to get some of them s grip tyres off ebay. The min's all up and running just need the black sports motor as mines only got a silver can and can only find a 16 tooth pinion so i'll be the slow one :x
