You can test RP , SPICE or RIDE tire
RP is with high grip , SPICE Medium , RIDE Lower grip.

Is RP for high grip tracks. Or does it generate high grip in low grip tracks?

No. Traction roll like crazy. The Ride slicks might if you rounded the outside edges.

DirtyRacer, do a search for the mo4 thread.
My set-up is posted there and that set-up has really worked for me and made my m04 competitive with the mo3's. My car was 4 mile's per hour faster down the straight-away than the closest mo3 the last time I raced it!

fleabay - the online stores.
but be weary of dinball / rcmart out of HK.
they are notorious for selling items they dont have in stock.
(and then they'll bait you to swap or take a store credit.)
I have read that many buyers have been fleeced with this tactic of theirs.
