Thats Funny! I found an MO3 on the for sale forum and a guy was selling a brand new MO3 never ran fully assembled with extras for a Hunsky

God deal but he never got back to me.

Plus you dont want to buy anything from Seattle everything up there is old and washed up. There years behind on technology put it this way Star Wars just got released at the movie theaters today.

If your suspension is set-up correctly bump steer shouldn't be an issue at all.

A well set-up Mini will only use a few mm of travel, and over that sort of distance bump steer is virtually non-existent anyway.

It only looks bad when you're holding the car in your hand and moving the arms up and down. On the track it has no effect.

60D inserts not enough to fill out tires.

U need to use a rubber touring insert on top of foam insert or vice versa depending on track surface. A little difficult to stuff it in but can be done. rubber insert needs to be cut down and glued together to get right diameter.

HPI Blue insert med-hard 24 mm for M grips ( 50683 ) in front and S grips ( 53254 ) in rear for asphalt tracks. We found that slicks really don't work that well....

a touring insert(soft, med or hard?) on top of 60D hard inserts and squeeze into the tires? wow...isn't that a little too hard? how are you able to glue it?

Your original question said SUPER SLICKS. Do you mean 53222 SUPER SLICKS or 53440 60D Reinforced Tire "A" slicks??
If it is the 53440 60D then use the tips that everyone is giving you.
If it is the 53222 SUPER SLICK (50D) then I would suggest trying to find Spice inserts they make 4 thickness (4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.0mm & 5.5mm), and 3 firmness (soft, med, & hard)

With any luck you can run a non tamiya insert other than that you might have to make something.
I would suggest if you have to keep it Tamiya then you will want a 60D tire it is tall and you will the travel further everytime it makes a revolution. i.e. a hig top speed.
