Depends on what kind of "carpet" and if saucing is needed or allowed. Gotta ask the track locals.

I've seen people run pin point and have too much traction. On ST and SC if you are traction rolling try and duck tape an outside strip of the tires

Does Proline make Pinpoints for stadium trucks? I didn't find any but maybe I over looked them. Couldn't find Shumacher Mini Pins for ST either.

I'm going to start with Schumacher Mini Spike on the rear and Stagger Rib on the front.

I have mine about 90% together and I will say AE has done a great job. The running change with the ball cups are a lot better. I still had to squeeze a few but they're totally freed up. My only question with the "running change" in the ball cups....is there a way to know you're getting the updated cups? I mean if you shop at a hobby shop that has low inventory turns...those cups will have the same part number but could have been on the wall for over a year.

I bought the stagger ribbed for my xb4 becuase the pinpoints were too much traction in the front. Just trying to find a good tire for the t5m

Make sure you have the steering ball cups on properly. If you have the curved cup on backwards it will rub the wheel

Does anyone have a link for where I can get Schumacher Mini Pins for stadium trucks?

I was on the Proline site and they do not show a Pinpoint tire for ST.

I got my Schumacher tires from Amain for my buggy. They had just started carrying them. I haven't seen them for the truck other then buying them overseas and having them shipped here. My buddy just did this. Didn't take too long for them to get here
