Anywhere to get the Team Powers mini tires in the USA? What foam thickness would be best for relatively high-grip treated asphalt? Tamiya 60D Type A slicks traction roll like crazy on our track.

Traction roll is caused by too much grip. I think the Team Powers tyres will give you more grip than 60D's. Perhaps you should look to try something like Tamiya s-grips or m-grips. I believe they are preferred choice on high grip carpet. Even kit tyres may work but will wear very quickly.

Ahhh, I thought that the Team Powers slicks in a 36 would be less grippy than the Type A...perhaps not. I tried the 3racing mini tires and liked them a lot while they were new, but they wore out very quickly. Who cares at $8.33 for four including foams though.

Do you have a link for info on S-grips and M-grips? Are they still 60D?

Also with the 60D tyres they are a lot higher compared to team powers or ride etc so that helps with traction roll.

So are these others 55D? I don't want to kill my top end...

For high grip asphalt, nothing beats the Rides. You'll need to play with compounds and inserts tho. If you can find them HPI X-patterns with a cut touring car insert also worls well.

Top end is over rated. Like Tony gray has said in the past we have found that the smaller tires more than make up for their lack of top end by their handling in the in field. That plus the fact that you dont have to toe out (which scrubs speed) like 60D tires to get steering.

As for the HPI X pattern ... out of production ... but I have good stock if you want to freight from Australia

I hear ya, and we do have a nice tight technical infield, but there's also a decently long straight. It kinda sucks to have someone with a red dot motor walk right by you on the straight when you can out-handle them on the infield. Maybe the combo is to get a red dot myself and then effectively gear it down with 55Ds....hmmm...

Yes, I lost our mini cooper points series in the very last race to someone with one of your motors. He had much more speed down the straight than anyone else. Very much so. He could almost be caught in the infield though, but then came the straight again and bye-bye.

He's probably reading this right now though, so so much for my secret plan!
